NRA opposes two bump stock bills

The NRA came out against Sen. Dianne Feinstein's bill, which would make it illegal for companies and individuals to buy the firearm accessory, and Rep. Carlos Curbelo's bipartisan bill, which would ban bump stocks. "We oppose the gun-control legislation ... These bills are intentionally overreaching and would ban commonly owned firearm accessories," the NRA said. But "the ATF should review bump-fire stocks to ensure they comply with federal law."

Flashback: Last week, just days after the mass shooting, the NRA issued a statement in support of additional federal regulations on bump stocks, which allowed Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock to give his semiautomatic rifle automatic capabilities when he attacked concertgoers.
