Bump stock legislation
After a number of mass shootings, two Tennessee lawmakers want to ban bump stock weapons in the state. Democrat Senator Lee Harris and Representative Dwayne Thompson filed the legislation on Wednesday. “If we want to limit the number of people a mass shooter can kill we should move quickly to ban the sale of bump stocks in Tennessee,” Senator Harris said. Bump stock devices are used to modify a gun into an automatic weapon. It is the type of weapon used by gunman Stephen Paddock in the recent Las Vegas attack that killed more than 50 people and hurt hundreds of others. After that incident the National Rifle Association (NRA) suggested a federal review of the devices.
