Attempts to Regulate Bump Stocks on Guns and Apply Other Regulations to the Use of Firearms

From the State Capitol: Following the shooting in Las Vegas, where the shooter used a device called a “bump stock” that allowed a semi-automatic weapon to fire more quickly than originally designed, Rep Martin Moylan (D) introduces legislation, HB-4117, that would outlaw such devices and apply further regulations to the use of firearms.

We hear Rep Moylan testify before the House Judiciary Committee, and hear from NRA lobbyist, Todd Vandermyde, who is also an expert in firearms. Following this hearing, the bill was voted down in the full House, during the Fall Veto Session of the legislature.
