NRA opposes legislation banning bump stocks

The National Rifle Association (NRA) on Thursday said it opposes legislation in both the House and the Senate that would ban the use of bump stocks, a device that can be used to increase a semi-automatic rifle’s rate of fire and was found in the hotel room of the Las Vegas shooter.
“The NRA opposes the Feinstein and Curbelo legislation,” Jennifer Baker, the director of public affairs for the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, told The Hill, referencing legislation in both chambers.
The NRA’s opposition to the bill comes as Democrats and some Republican lawmakers have called for legislation banning bump stocks in the wake of the country’s deadliest mass shooting.
