VERIFY: Did Las Vegas gunman use automatic weapon?

Tillerson Says He Never Considered Leaving Trump Administration

A bump stock is an low-cost attachment that enables a semi-automatic rifle to simulate the effect of a fully automatic rifle. Now the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history has drawn attention to the devices, which critics say flout federal restrictions on automatic guns.

The stocks have been around for less than a decade, the AP reported.

The device replaces a rifle's standard stock, which is the part held against the shoulder. By holding the pistol grip with one hand and pushing forward on the barrel with the other, the shooter's finger comes in contact with the trigger. It frees the weapon to slide back and forth rapidly, harnessing the energy from the kickback shooters feel when the weapon fires. The device is legal because it does not, technically, convert a semiautomatic weapon, which reloads automatically but fires manually, into a fully automatic weapon, which continues to fire on its own after a single trigger pull. "These types of stocks are gimmicky components that waste ammunition more than have any real use for".

If Trump weighs in - for or against new restrictions on bump-stock regulations - he could be decisive, Republicans say. "But we're prayerful, we're respectful, but it is no substitute for action", said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who said he would vote for a ban on bump stocks, and Sen.

Those industries also export to the USA from Hunchun, but AP did not track specific shipments except for seafood. Many work in factories in China packing fish for sale in household name stores across the U.S. and Europe.

The statement from the NRA said the right to sell bump stock devices was approved during the Obama-era. It can reportedly allow a gun to shoot hundred of rounds per minute.

He had 23 guns in the room.

The National Rifle Association announced Thursday that it supports a review of bump fire stocks to see if they are in accordance with federal law.

A measure to restrict bump stocks is getting bi-partisan support in Congress, just days after such a device was used to perpetrate the worst mass shooting in US history.

GAME ON: Florida State officials confirm kickoff time for Miami game
Both schools said Wednesday they were monitoring the situation and were in contact with the ACC. Miami football game will kick off as scheduled at 3:30 p.m.

Selling and manufacturing automatic weapons has been illegal since 1986, and weapons purchased before then are regulated by the federal government. And any minute now, Second Amendment advocateswill insist banning bump stocks somehow violates the Constitution.

Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, said the industry is prepared to have the devices scrutinized by lawmakers and gun-control advocates.

But it's not yet clear whether, having opened the door to cracking down on weapons, Republicans will actually walk through it. Inaction has been the norm for the GOP following other mass shootings in the past, including the Sandy Hook, Connecticut, massacre of schoolchildren five years ago, last year's bloodbath at the Pulse nightclub in Florida, and a baseball field shooting this year in which House Majority Whip Steve Scalise came close to death. But he and others defended their use, suggesting it's unfair to go after firearms when other weapons - trucks and fertilizer, for example - aren't as quickly criticized after deadly attacks. In an interview on MSNBC, he said "clearly that's something we need to look into".
