Shop that sold gun to Las Vegas shooter forced into lockdown

Shop that sold gun to Las Vegas shooter forced into lockdown

Stoehlien is legally blind, but has made a hobby out of building and shooting guns because the likes the feel of them.

The National Rifle Association announced its support Thursday for regulating "bump stocks", devices that can effectively convert semi-automatic rifles into fully automated weapons and that were apparently used in the Las Vegas massacre to lethal effect.

Country music star Jason Aldean was performing on Sunday night at the end of the three-day festival in front of a crowd of more than 22,000 when the gunman opened fire from inside the 44-floor Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street on Las Vegas Strip. The time between mass shootings, considered to be those involving four or more people, has steadily decreased in the U.S. and now stands at 72 days.

The bump stock, because it has "no automatically functioning mechanical parts" is a "firearm part and is not regulated" under gun control laws, the agency said in a June 2010 letter to the company. However, legislation that makes it easier for one to buy a gun certainly does not help.

In this instance, one could argue that doing nothing is a good thing.

They can be found online for around $100.

USA shooting statistics beggar belief. Despite Bond's significant experience and knowledge of weapons, trying to decipher the instructions and navigate the pieces proved challenging to him. "There are some accessories that are available on the market, such as a bump fire stock or a slide fire". Even before we got started, he shared his thoughts. After hearing about the most recent shooting, I can't say I was surprised. As a public health student and registered nurse, I see how a multidisciplinary approach frames much of public health.

But safety is compromised if the device does not work correctly. To be an automatic weapon, a rifle must be able to fire continuously by having the shooter press the trigger once. Several years ago, she had expressed concern about the emergence of new technologies that could retrofit firearms to effectively make them fully automatic.

He began rapid firing the weapon as designed.

He urged support for policies to make it more hard for people with criminal backgrounds or mental illness to access firearms, such as stronger background checks and more measures to prevent gun trafficking.

"It's not quite as fast but what more do you need than that?"

Cornyn said as a hunter and sportsman he doesn't understand the use of the bump stock and wants to have a hearing on it.

"Statistically would there have been a difference if Paddock had used a semi-automatic?" asked Bond. "But I can tell you this, the damage would have been significant either way". John Cornyn and Rep. Bill Flores, were actually discussing the prospect of banning the "bump stock" style modification device.
