President Trump, many leaders and gun advocates have explained their “want and need” for a ban on devices that allow semi-automatic guns to fire like automatic firearms. A bump stock is an attachment that allows a semi-automatic gun to be used as a fully automatic gun. Semi-automatic guns with the bump stocks can fire 400 to 800 rounds per minute, depending on what gun is being used. Some states, one being Washington, have banned bump stocks but plenty have not. The topic is currently being considered about banning bump stocks.

The pros to banning bump stocks is that people who want to use bump stocks to increase their fire in mass shootings would have a harder time accessing it. An example would be the Las Vegas mass shooting, the gunman used multiple bump stocks on all the guns he had; leaving 58 victims dead. Using bump stocks allows someone to make any gun into a deadly assault weapon. If this accessory to guns ended up being illegal, the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) would have trouble rewriting the laws and also have more power on getting rid of anything that would make a gun increase its rate of fire.
