Oct. 6 — Days after the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, questions are being raised over the legality of “bump stocks,” which are devices that can be attached to semi automatic rifles that increase their rate of fire.

‘Bump stocks’ are devices attached to semiautomatic guns to increase speed at which rounds are fired.

The National Rifle Association, which has opposed gun regulation of any sort to date, called on the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review the devices’ compliance with federal law in a statement Friday.

Beyond this, NRA executives Chris Cox and Wayne LaPierre stated, “The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.”

This statement is a rare instance of the interest group holding a position in favor of regulation that would limit access to guns or related paraphernalia.

In Friday’s statement, however, the association made clear its intention to continue to oppose regulation on civilian firearms. “In an increasingly dangerous world, the NRA remains focused on our mission: strengthening Americans’ Second Amendment freedom to defend themselves, their families and their communities,” said the group’s top officials.
