ALBOENEWS — NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre and Executive Director Chris Cox released a statement Thursday asking that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms reconsider whether or not to continue to permit the legal sale of bump stocks.
Bump stocks are a legal firearm modification which, when fitted to a semi-automatic rife, permit it to fire in a rapid manner similar to a fully automatic weapon.
The Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, was found to have used such a device to legally retrofit a semi-automatic rifle used in the recent mass shooting.
