First came the Las Vegas shooting. Then came the Florida shooting. In light of two major shootings, the Justice Department has proposed a plan to ban bump stocks, which essentially allow guns to fire like automatic weapons, even if they aren’t. In case you weren’t aware, bump stocks were used during the massacre in Vegas, and have since become a focal point for those wanting more gun regulation. There’s one small issue, however, and that’s the fact that back in 2010 the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives that found bump stocks were not equivalent to machine guns and could not be regulated unless Congress changed the existing firearms law or passed a new one. Long story short? It’s going to be an uphill battle in attempting to ban these things, but here’s to hoping.
