NRA To Ryan, Congress: Don't Ban Bump Stocks

The N-R-A says it's against any bill to ban "bump stocks."

The Las Vegas shooter used the devices to augment guns he used to kill 59 people from hundreds of yards away. N-R-A officials say the Trump administration should regulate the devices instead of Congress. House Speaker Paul Ryan of Janesville has said Congress should look into the matter, but some of the conservatives in his party oppose legislation. N-R-A vice president Wayne LaPierre says congressional action would allow other types of gun control to be added, something his group calls "fuzzing the line." LaPierre says he agrees it's illegal to convert a semi-automatic gun to an automatic one, and that's what bump stocks do.
