What are bump stocks?
Bump stocks are rifle accessories that take place of the gun’s “standard stock,” which is the piece that rests against the shooter’s shoulder. As long as the shooter holds down the trigger and places pressure on the barrel, the bullets will fly almost as quickly as with an automatic firearm.
The Las Vegas Massacre shooter used several semi-automatic weapons that he modified with bump stocks, which allowed the firearms to fire faster. He was able to unleash approximately 90 shots in only 10 seconds.
Bump stocks do not technically convert semi-automatic guns to automatic ones, which is why they used to be considered legal.
