Fire bump stocks would be banned under federal proposal

Although the alleged shooter, 19-year-old Nicolas Cruz, did not use a bump stock device, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, signed a bill into law on Friday, banning the modification as well as raising the minimum age for purchasing a firearm in the state from 18 to 21.

The Justice Department submitted a proposal that would forbid the sale of bump stocks Saturday.

The Justice Department officially submitted a notice of a proposed regulation with the Office of Management and Budget Saturday concerning bump stocks, accessories attached to semi-automatic weapons that enable them to mimic the functionality of automatic firearms.

But the step is tangible evidence that the department is working toward regulating the devices. And in December, Sessions announced that he was initiating the process to potentially change federal regulations and would be accepting public comments through January 25.

U.S. President Donald Trump will support a modest set of fixes to gun laws, stepping back from some of the more sweeping changes he had considered after the country's latest mass school shooting, senior officials told reporters on Sunday.

Scores of people reportedly have been killed since a magnitude-7.5 quake rocked the nation on February 26th. Around 274,000 people need immediate support and 55,000 children under age five are among the most at risk.

The matter is more complicated than meets the eye. In the department's current view, the notice clarifies, bump stocks are included in the legal definition of a "machinegun".

The National Rifle Association has supported tighter controls on bump stocks, but has not endorsed Trump's proposed ban. Bump stocks are gunstocks created to make bump firing easier-that is, they allow the gunman to use the gun's recoil to press the trigger faster than a human finger can, simulating the rapid-succession fire of an automatic weapon.

The proposed regulation would reclassify the controversial device as a "machinegun", making it illegal to own, sell or manufacture bump stocks. Those who want to see the devices regulated say legislation would be a far easier and more effective way to ban them, as a change in regulation is surely to be met with legal challenges from manufacturers.

Trump's proposal comes in the wake of a national conversation centered around gun violence and school safety that began in February after a gunman killed 17 students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

During a Cabinet meeting Thursday, Trump vowed that a ban on bump stocks as a legal item in the USA was nearly "finished".
