Trump says will be looking into whether to ban 'bump stocks'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday his administration will be looking into whether to ban “bump stocks,” devices that allow semi-automatic rifles to behave like full automatic weapons, after the Las Vegas mass shooting.

We’ll be looking into that over the next short period of time,” Trump told reporters when asked if bump stocks should be banned.
