New Bill Seeks to Heavily Regulate Bump-Fire Stocks, Other Devices--NRA Opposed

A pair of Democrats and Republicans introduced a new bill on Tuesday that would subject bump-fire stocks and other devices to the same regulations as machine guns and other highly regulated firearms. The bill, named the Closing the Bump-Stock Loophole Act, would add "a reciprocating stock, or any other device which is designed to accelerate substantially the rate of fire of a semiautomatic weapon" to the purview of the National Firearms Act, which currently regulates machine guns, short-barreled rifles or shotguns, silencers, and other firearms.  The bill is different from a previous bump-fire stock bill introduced a few weeks ago by 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats which would make it outright illegal to "manufacture, possess, or transfer any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle." Just as with that bill, though, the National Rifle Association has come out in opposition. The gun-rights group's lobbying arm said it sees the same flaw in both bills: overly broad language. "The NRA opposes the overly broad legislation being offered by congressman Fitzpatrick, which is not limited to bumpstocks and includes many commonly owned firearm accessories," Jennifer Baker, a spokesperson for the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon.
