Blumenthal Statement on NRA Announcement on Bump Stock Regulation

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement today in response to the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) statement suggesting review of bump stock regulation. Blumenthal introduced a bill yesterday that would ban bump stocks.

“The NRA call for review and regulation of bump stocks is a dangerous and deceptive dodge. Bump stocks should be banned completely, and right now. Lives would have been saved in Las Vegas if no bump stock was sold to the mass murderer there – a mass murderer who mowed down people because he had a fully automatic weapon, enabled by this device. The NRA’s proposal for regulation means more delay, when immediate action is absolutely necessary.”
