Hey, here's how to make your semi-automatic weapon fire more quickly with a bump stock

NPR reports, "Authorities with the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives said 12 devices called "bump-fire stocks" were found in Paddock's hotel. Audio from the attack suggested that the shots were fired very rapidly, perhaps as fast as 90 shots in 10 seconds. Bump stocks are devices that can be attached to a weapon and allow the shooter to use the power of the recoil to fire more quickly — and on Tuesday, the ATF affirmed their legality."

"The classification of these devices depends on whether they mechanically alter the function of the firearm to fire fully automatic," said Jill Snyder, ATF Special Agent in Charge. "Bump-fire stocks, while simulating automatic fire, do not actually alter the firearm to fire automatically, making them legal under current federal law. It is still being determined which firearms were used in the shooting."

And YouTube is full of how to install a bump stock on your semi to make it pretty much fully automatic.

As a start, Google - how about we get rid of these how tos on YouTube? Next? We make the bump stocks illegal. Fix the problem? No. But it makes it a bit tougher and a bit easier to trace. Then, We make machine guns and other assault rifles illegal. Or, how about at the very least we limit folks to 2 -- and that requires a purchaser paid visit to their home, ie like DYFS does.

Gun safety going forward is going to have to entail some sort of home visits. Some sort.
