Gun proposal picks up GOP support

October 5, 2017

A Democratic proposal to ban a special accessory known as a bump stock, which allows semi-automatic guns to fire several hundred rounds a minute, is gaining unexpected support from Republicans in both chambers.

It’s the first time gun-control legislation has picked up significant Republican support since immediately after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in late 2012. Bump stocks were allegedly used by the gunman who killed 59 people at a Las Vegas concert Sunday.

While some GOP members are backing the Democrat-sponsored measure, the effort has many hurdles to clear. To become law, it would have to be embraced by Republican leaders on Capitol Hill and President Trump, who was endorsed by the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA) last year.

Rep. Bill Flores (Texas), a former Republican Study Committee chairman, was the first Republican in Congress to publicly endorse a ban on bump stocks.

    If the NRA says no then it will not pass, they own Washington and they are in turn owned by the gun manufactures. They have also bought and paid legislation for the sale of silencers and cop killing bullets.

      You’re a total idiot. The NRA gave $3million in donations to Republican candidates while during the same period, unions donated over $75 million to Democrats. Who owns who? You swallow whatever the liberal gun control advocates tell you. You know nothing about the NRA. You just spew the BS you’ve been told. You’re nothing but a liberal troll. I bet you even think that “silencers” completely remove the report of a firearm. You’re an idiot! Oh yes, and an ass hole.

        Tell me when the last time the republicans passed anything that wasn’t NRA approved. As far as what I know about the NRA, I’m pretty sure it’s more then you do. I’m also pretty sure my knowledge of guns is at least as good if not better then yours.
