If a report from CNN comes to fruition, we’ll find out soon enough as he’s expected to announce a ban on bump stocks. A Justice Department official tells CNN that Mr. Trump will sign an order that requires all owners of bump stocks to turn them over or discard them within 90 days.
Bump stocks increase the firing speed of semiautomatic guns so they shoot like machine guns, which are illegal. The official said the new federal rule will send a clear message that illegal guns have no place in a law-and-order society, and that the rule will be vigorously enforced to keep these illegal weapons off the street.
A bump stock was used by a gunman to kill 58 people at a concert in Las Vegas last year.
