It's always good to wait for the real evidence to come out. The BATF release noted that the Vegas shooter (Paddock) had installed "bump stocks" on 12 guns found in his Mandalay Bay hotel room--not illegally modified guns to full automatic.
It shows that much of the reporting to date on the shooting were merely wild and inaccurate speculation.
Washington state Guv Inslee (Dem) is asking the WA legislature to ban bump stocks. ...Expect other gun control states to jump on that bandwagon.The man police say rained down bullets into a crowded country music festival on the Las Vegas strip Sunday modified a dozen guns with devices mimicking fully automatic fire, federal authorities confirmed Tuesday.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives traced all 47 firearms recovered from 64-year-old Stephen Paddock‘s hotel room and his two Nevada residences. San Francisco Special Agent in Charge Jill Snyder said Tuesday the agency found 12 bump stocks in the two-room suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino where Paddock spent four days stockpiling 23 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition in preparation for Sunday’s attack.
Snyder said the bump stocks “simulate automatic fire,” though she didn’t identify which firearms from Paddock’s arsenal of rifles, shotguns and handguns were used in the shooting.
