After Vegas shooting anniversary, we are closer to a federal bump stock ban
from By Michelle R. Matisons
Just over one year ago on Oct. 1, 2017, people watched in horror as a Las Vegas gunman opened fire on a large crowd gathered for a country music concert. This incident is now known as the United States' deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual. Of course, it didn’t take long for gun control reformers to seize on the moment and call for stricter gun safety laws, such as stronger background checks. Another agenda item is the banning of firearms enhancements, like bump stocks. The Vegas shooter used 12 bump stocks to enhance his weapons, and the devices are now under greater public scrutiny.
