Explaining A Bump Stock

Federal legislators are targeting the sales of bump stocks, the kind of device that allowed the Las Vegas shooter to continually spray fire at concert goers. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt is familiar with the device that allows a person to modify a weapon. It allows the shooter to pull the trigger fast over and over again versus an automatic weapon where you pull the trigger and hold it until you are done shooting. He says it doesn’t make the weapon accurate, but in the case of the Las Vegas shooter firing from an elevated position into a crowd of people he wouldn’t have to be. Bump stocks have been flying off shelves as people snap them up before some type of federal ban is passed.
