Pro-Gun advocate, Jacksonville Congressman John Rutherford, may end up at being at odds with the NRA. Rutherford is joining other members of the Republican Party in supporting legislation to ban “bump-stocks,” the kind of device the Las Vegas gunman used to greatly increase the rate of firing.
Rutherford signed on to a letter, sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives urging them to re-evaluate the regulation of bump-stock devices.
Some gun control advocates thought the gun lobby was going to endorse the gun restrictions of banning bump stocks.
But over the weekend, the National Rifle Association came put opposing a ban on “bump stocks.”
