NRA Calls for Review of Bump Stock Rules

The National Rifle Association announced Thursday it will support a review of bump fire stocks, as Washington lawmakers ramp up debate over gun legislation in the wake of the mass shooting in Las Vegas this week.
"The National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law," the NRA said in a statement. "The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations."
WIBC host Tony Katz vehemently disagrees with the NRA's decision, telling listeners it creates an "opening to the anti-gun zealots."
In no way am I saying that the bump stock is the greatest invention ever. Until they started about it with relation to the shooting in Las Vegas, I'd never heard of it.
Well the NRA is saying that they are willing to look at it and discuss the legality of these bump stocks.
...So the NRA is either trying to avoid a larger problem, or they are opening the door to a larger problem; it depends how you see it.
