Trump directs attorney general to propose bump stock ban

President Trump on Tuesday said that he wants to ban so-called bump stocks — devices that can turn ordinary rifles into weapons that fire like machine guns, such as those used in the mass killing in Las Vegas.

“After the deadly shooting in Las Vegas, I directed the attorney general to clarify whether certain bump stock devices like the one used in Las Vegas are illegal under current law,” Trump said, referring to Jeff Sessions.
