The Trump administration is proposing banning bump stocks, which allow semiautomatic weapons to fire bullets rapidly like an automatic weapon.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) submitted a notice of regulation which, it said, will "clarify that the definition of "machinegun" in the National Firearms Act and Gun Control Act includes bump stock type devices, and that federal law accordingly prohibits the possession, sale, or manufacture of such devices".
Officials at the Justice Department began pushing toward a regulation of bump stocks in the days after a gunman using such devices shot and killed 58 people on the Las Vegas Strip, asking the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to reconsider a years earlier opinion it could not legally restrict the devices.
He directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions to find a way to ban the devices after the February 14 attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, even though that attack did not involve bump stocks. The devices will remain on the market until the regulation is approved by the Office of Management and Budget.
An example of a bump stock that attaches to a semi-automatic rifle to increase the firing rate is seen at Good Guys Gun Shop in Orem, Utah, on October 4, 2017.
The Justice Department's regulation would classify the hardware as a machine gun banned under federal law. The plan does not address a number of issues supported by gun control advocates, including a ban on bump stocks or raising the minimum age required to purchase a rifle to 21. The ATF responded by opening a review into bump stocks, calling for public comments in December as the first step in the review process.
"These accessories DO NOT cause the firearm to shoot more than one shot by the single function of a trigger pull".
Because of the department's continued insistence that it cannot regulate bump stocks, the ATF's current reversal declaring the devices illegal could pave the way for manufacturers to challenge the new ruling in court, CBS News noted.
The National Rifle Association has supported tighter controls on bump stocks, but has not endorsed Trump's proposed ban.
