Gun Control: 'Bump-Fire' Stocks [October 10, 2017]   [open pdf - 124KB]

"Following the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas, NV, attack, there has been significant congressional interest in 'bump-fire' stocks that can assist a person in firing a semiautomatic rifle repeatedly, sometimes at rates usually associated with fully automatic machineguns. It has been reported that the assailant in this attack had 12 semiautomatic rifles outfitted with 'bump-fire' stocks. The terms 'bump-fire' and 'slide-fire' are often used interchangeably."
