This Is The Trump Administration's New Proposal To Ban Bump Stocks

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a rule change that expanded the definition of machine gun in federal law to include "bump stock-type devices". But since bump stock manufacturers specifically designed the devices to avoid being classified as machine guns, expect the rule-based ban to face lawsuits from them and gun rights advocates, as a ban of the devices in Florida already has.

"After the senseless attack in Las Vegas, this proposed rule is a critical step in our effort to reduce the threat of gun violence that is in keeping with the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress", Sessions said.

Among their demands was a ban on bump stocks.

- President Trump announced that the administration plans to ban bump stocks and other devices that can modify weapons, making them more risky and faulting the Obama administration for the legalization.

He was briefly held in custody on charges of rebellion and sedition after his involvement in the independence push in October. Some parts of the crowd clashed with police and Spanish media report that more than 20 people were treated for minor injured.

The move comes a day before hundreds of thousands of people are expected to descend on the capital to call for stricter gun control in the wake of last month's mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school.

The Justice Department proposed a ban Friday that would criminalize possession of rapid-fire bump stocks, devices made infamous after the Las Vegas shooting that received renewed attention as students protest gun violence across the country.

"We must do more to protect our children", Trump said then, promising that the school safety would be a top priority for the administration.

Just one day before protestors prepare to gather on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. for the March For Our Lives protest, the Department of Justice officially opened the public comment period on amendments to rules which would formally define bump stocks as machine guns.

The company is also targeting an 8% core operating profit margin and cumulative free cash flow of ¥2.5 trillion (US$23 billion). Nissan tested its first robo-vehicle ride-hailing service called "Easy Ride" with partner DeNA earlier this month.

President Donald Trump says his administration will "BAN" bump stock devices that "turn legal weapons into illegal machines". If the proposal is signed into law, current holders of bump-stocks would be required to surrender their devices, according to the Justice Department.

The comment period for the amendment is 90 days.

The attacker, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, used the modifications to increase his rate of fire, allowing him to kill 58 people at a concert in Las Vegas.

Gun control advocates have raised concerns that such a sharp reversal, after years of the ATF making a case for why the instruments cannot be banned, could make a ban hard to defend in court.
