'Keep the faith, love your product': after Vegas massacre, 'bump stock' machine-gun conversion is hot seller in US

Congressional effort expected to ban gun stock device apparently used in Vegas attack

Legislation introduced this week by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein estimates bump stocks can boost the firing rate from between 45 and 60 rounds per minute to between 400 and 800 rounds per minute.

While bump stocks simulate the same action of an automatic firearm, they are not fully automatic and so have not been banned by the ATF.

The National Rifle Association announced Thursday that it supports a review of bump fire stocks to see if they are in accordance with federal law.

The Las Vegas gunman had 12 legal rifles modified with bump stock attachments.

At Staudt's Gun Shop in Harrisburg Slide Fire Bump Stocks use to more of a novelty item.

While bump stocks are not illegal in the United States - even though they essentially convert a semi-automatic weapon to an automatic one - automatic weapons manufactured after May 19, 1986, are illegal to own.

The NRA says it is open to new regulations on bump stocks, devices that were on the weapons of the Las Vegas shooter.

Numerous 23 guns found with Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock were modified with bump stocks. "But making new statutes that law -abiding citizens have to follow doesn't change criminal activity".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier Thursday that the president welcomed a review of US policy on the devices, which were apparently used by the Las Vegas shooter to make his weapons more deadly.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that the administration was open to reviewing policy on bump stocks.

Representative Chris Stewart addressed the subject on Twitter, saying, "It is my view that these devices circumvent the Gun Control Act and the National Firearms Act".

Sen. Sherrod Brown is renewing his calls to examine the nation's gun laws following the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The White House said President Donald Trump welcomed a review of U.S. policy on the devices.

But with applied pressure, they can cause the weapon to fire continuously.

President Donald Trump has also remained mum on gun control measures. "Fully automatic weapons have been banned for a long time".
