"That should be part of the conversation and part of the facts that you put before your viewers".
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said that the sheer carnage of Sunday's mass shooting is fueling lawmakers' interest in the issue.
Semi-automatic guns are lethal enough. "To me, that is part of that same type of process". However, I'm very confident that today a majority of Republicans in the House would support banning these devices.
In an interview with Miami's NPR affiliate, WLRN, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) said, "Right now the best candidate for a common denominator is to focus on these bump stock devices, which are so deadly and so potent". Most recently, last Thursday, just days before Paddock opened fire from his Las Vegas hotel room.
But fully automatic weapons are severely restricted in the U.S. New fully automatic weapons are only manufactured for law enforcement officials and the military.
But, Feinstein said, "for one reason or another", her daughter and neighbors decided not to make the trip from San Francisco.
"Putting more new laws on the book not going to stop it", he said. "I just thank God".
"Will I be able to order sometime soon?" one Facebook user asked. She authored legislation to ban assault weapons in 2013 that failed in the Senate, 40-60. The device allows a shooter to fire dozens of rounds in seconds by harnessing the gun's natural recoil.
I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man.
The National Rifle Association has said the devices should be "subject to additional regulations".
"This is the first time I'm hearing about it". After reports that the shooter, Omar Mateen, had pledged allegiance to ISIS, Trump took to Twitter to push his political agenda and support his proposed travel ban on several predominantly-Muslim countries. Bond had never fired a "bump stock" before. "Anyway, something to look at", Graham said.
SHEPHERD: If you'd have said, right, we're going to have new gun laws now, there are so many weapons out there. The nation's largest gun lobby and most Republicans have stood firmly in recent years against stricter gun regulations, even as one mass shooting after another horrified the nation.
CURBELO: Well, certainly we can not say that this new legislation would have prevented the Las Vegas massacre.
Since it technically does not convert a semi-automatic rifle to an automatic, the device, according to the ATF, is legal. "Focusing on the devices instead of the criminal and what he did is the wrong way to go", he said. "Let's have a discussion".
And, nothing, not even holding a gun to their heads, would move Congress to pass meaningful gun control faster than a flood of applications from black people threatening to stockpile weapons of their own.
"With the addition of Rodgers, the handful of Republicans who are willing to take a look at what the bump stock" modification means for safety is growing. "None", said Republican Sen. No one wants to ban an entire class of firearms, and no one wants to single out particular gun buyers. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania fell short on the Senate floor. "I haven't looked at it, but I'm skeptical".
But the intense scrutiny has made them harder to get: A week ago bump stocks sold for about $100.
He says he doesn't have any answers to the problem, but says he's willing to engage in dialogue with anyone who thinks they do.
There was no immediate response to a request for comment from the office of Sen.
Across the aisle, Democrats are more than willing to have a conversation. Jon Tester, D-Montana.
"Due to extreme high demands, we are now out of stock".
Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., also introduced legislation similar to Feinstein's in the House. "I don't know and I don't have any way of knowing".
Feinstein held out hope that this time would be different because of the scale of casualties and the weaponry "taking it into war".
