The Donald BANS ‘bump stocks’

Legally, ‘bump stocks’ could be bought in the USA for $100, and they can change semi automatic rifles into fully automatic machine guns.

However, President Donald Trump has taken steps to order their banning.

Trump said “We can do more to protect our children. We must do more to protect our children.

“Just a few moments ago I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns. I expect these critical regulations will be finalised very soon.”

Bump stocks were used in the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting, killing nearly 60 people and injuring hundreds more.

Donald Trump announced he would start moves to ban them, days after the mass shooting at a high school in Florida, leaving 17 staff and kids dead.

The Florida killer did not use a bump stock, however he did use a legal semi automatic rifle.

Had Nikolas Cruz, 19, used a bump stock, the victim list could have been longer.
