Bump stock mods will be banned
Bumps stocks is the root of the evil?
The government is coming this week with a new law prohibiting the use of weapon magazines with high capacity ammunition. That is what CNN says. With these so-called bump stocks, semi-automatic weapons can be converted into fully automatic rapid-fire weapons.
The bump stocks received national attention in the US when it became apparent that the perpetrator of the killing in Las Vegas used these mods. At this October last massacre, where a man shot at a music festival, 58 people died and more than 850 wounded.
The Ministry of Justice has now determined that the mods turn semi-automatic rifles into fully automatic rifles, which are banned in the US.
President Donald Trump promised to look for a ban. He found, however, opposition from the association of firearmsmen, the National Rifle Association.
