Trump Administration Bans ‘Bump Stock’ Firearm Devices

The US government said Tuesday it was banning bump stocks, devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire like machine guns and that were used in a mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017.

The devices, which harness the recoil of a semi-automatic rifle’s discharge to make the trigger fire faster, effectively turn the weapons into machine guns, which are illegal, the Justice Department said.

Bump stocks allow a “Shooter of a semi-automatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger,” the department said in a statement.

Bump stocks allowed him to fire at a rate of nine bullets a second before he turned his weapons on himself.

President Donald Trump announced his intention to ban bump stocks but refused restrictions on semi-automatic assault weapons.


The National Rifle Association, the powerful gun lobby, did not mount any major campaign to counter a bump stock ban.

Anyone owning a bump stock will have 90 days after the new regulation is published in the Federal Register to either hand in their devices to the authorities, or destroy them.
