Mass-murderer Stephen Paddock used a device called a “bump stock” on his semi-automatic weapons to accelerate the rate at which they fire bullets.
In some instances, the bump stock can help a gun shoot up to 800 bullets per minute.
On the heels of the Las Vegas massacre, there is a call for new legislation to ban bump stocks.
The NRA has issued a statement declaring the accessory should be more regulated, but not banned.
We ask you today, should the bump stock be banned?
