ATF to Determine if It has Authority to Ban Bump Stocks on Weapons

Acting head of ATF Thomas Brandon.

Two months after the Las Vegas shooting, ATF said it has begun reviewing whether it has the authority to ban bump stocks, a device that allowed the shooter to essentially convert weapons into automatic ones, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Lawmakers have called on ATF officials to determine whether the agency has the authority to regulate bump stocks without congressional action.

ATF’s Acting Director Thomas E. Brandon is testifying in front of a Senate committee hearing about the issue this week.

Those like Sen. Dianne Feinstein believe Congress should pass legislation addressing the issue rather than relying on ATF to make changes.
