NRA Endorses Restricting Bump Stocks
“I think we are on the verge of a breakthrough.” So said Rep. Carlos Curbelo, who’s drafting bipartisan legislation to ban bump stocks, kits that modify rifles to fire hundreds of rounds per minute. Even the NRA endorsed restrictions on the devices. But some Republicans expressed concerns that any curbs would lead to wider gun control in the wake of the deadliest shooting in recent memory. Meanwhile, police said Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had booked hotel rooms near other music festivals, though it’s not clear if he’d intended to commit other massacres.
