It is possible demand for bump stocks will go up as they could become restricted or even banned. Typically, semi-automatic rifles fire at a rate of one bullet per pull of the trigger.

MI gun shops, meanwhile, say they've seen little demand for bump stocks.

"We got phone calls to sell them", he said of the bump stocks, which might sell for $200 to $300 each.

But here in Wisconsin and elsewhere, numerous politicians in power actually want to make our gun laws even looser than they already are. "They want them before they're outlawed because forbidden fruit is the best".

Bump stocks are now legal in the US, though some in the gun industry questioned their intended use. And some people were selling the devices online at inflated prices in the hopes of turning a quick profit. Most of his weapons were equipped with 60- to 100-round magazines.

But just because the gunfire sounded automatic doesn't necessarily mean that Paddock used automatic weapons.

Several leading Congressional Republicans have indicated this week that they are open to considering additional regulations on bump stocks, or even banning them altogether.

The National Rifle Association is calling for a federal review of bump stocks, a weapon modifier that allows semi-automatic weapons to fire faster.

"Members of both parties and multiple organisations are planning to take a look at bump stocks", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

It is legal across most of the country, and NY is one of a handful of states that bans it for personal use.

But lawmakers said the bump stock is a loophole because it is an accessory or add-on. Efforts to reach Marcotte were unsuccessful. House and Senate Democrats have introduced bills banning bump stocks and similar devices, like trigger cranks, that can accelerate the firing rate of a semi-automatic weapon to almost that of a machine gun. But that's not all, it's going to take about a year just to get it.

State police said if someone unlawfully possesses or converts a semiautomatic into an automatic weapon that it would violate CT law. "Compared to millions of gun owners, that's not a big number". A fully-automatic weapon can fire around 400 to 800 rounds per minute. "They're very hard to operate".

Joe Hulett, manager of Hampel's Gun in Traverse City, agreed, saying the business never had them in stock.

In the wake of yet another horrific mass shooting - this time in Las Vegas, with at least 59 dead and more than 500 wounded - the Republican push to relax gun laws further is reckless. He said it appeared to sound like automatic fire, but he could not really tell unless he was up close.
