Should Congress Ban Bump Stocks? [POLL]

According to the Dallas Morning News, Republicans and Democrats are taking steps towards a possible ban on bump stocks. The shooter in Las Vegas reportedly had modified 12 weapons with bump stocks. The bump stock, while not turning a semi-automatic into an automatic rifle, can simulate rapid fire. The Dallas Morning News reported that Republican Senator John Cornyn was among those wanting hearings on the bump stocks.

Cornyn, also a member of the Judiciary Committee, said that because Paddock had no criminal record and was a licensed gun owner, “it’s hard to figure out what kind of law we could pass that would prevent that sort of suicidal and homicidal act.”

But the “unique aspect of the bump stock and how you would literally transform a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic weapon is something that I think bears looking into,” Cornyn said.

Would you approve of Congress banning the bump stock?
