Bump stocks get hear­ing in Se­nate, dealt blow in House

The Denver Post - - NEWS - — Tri­bune News Ser­vice

WASHINGTON» More than two months af­ter the Las Ve­gas shoot­ing, the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary com­mit­tee held a long-awaited hear­ing ad­dress­ing the bump stock de­vices the shooter used to kill more than 50 peo­ple and in­jure hun­dreds more.

For the ATF to reg­u­late bump stocks un­der cur­rent leg­is­la­tion, the de­vices would need to be classified as “ma­chine guns.”

The bump stock de­bate has ground to a halt in the House, al­though some law­mak­ers are still ap­ply­ing pres­sure on their col­leagues re­gard­ing mea­sures in­tro­duced dur­ing the past two months to reg­u­late or ban them.
