U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto has teamed up with a bipartisan group of lawmakers in an effort to prohibit bump stocks, which allow firearms to mimic the rapid fire of automatic weapons. Cortez Masto, along with Senator Susan Collins of Maine, has introduced the Banning Unlawful Machinegun Parts (BUMP) Act. Representative Dina Titus of Nevada had previously introduced related legislation in the House. The move comes after the 2017 Las Vegas music festival shooting, where the shooter used bump stocks. Cortez Masto expressed her determination to remove these dangerous devices from the streets, emphasizing the impact of the tragic incident on her hometown. Former President Donald Trump had directed the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to ban bump stocks, requiring individuals to destroy or surrender them. However, a federal appeals court blocked the ban in January, stating that congressional action was necessary for a change in the law.
