President Trump has asked Attorney General to regulate ‘bump stocks’ which can be used to make semi-automatic weapons fire at a rate similar to automatic weapons.
Trump’s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several months after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to massacre dozens of people.
“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,” Trump said. “I expect that these critical regulations will be finalized, Jeff, very soon.”
“We can do more to protect our children. We must do more to protect our children,” Trump added.
