Should Bump-Stocks Be Banned?

On Sunday, October 1st, a country music concert was interrupted by gun fire. Stephan Paddock a 64-year old from Nevada started the most deadliest shooting in U.S. history. Paddock had 23 weapons with him in his hotel room. 12 of which had a device called a bump-stock. A device that replaces the pistol grip and stock and uses the recoil to help simulate automatic fire, like a military grade rifle. Many people, including the NRA (National Rifle Association) are discussing weather this should be an attachment civilians should be allowed to have.

I think the answer is quite simple. Seeing how one man with no motive can kill 59 people and injure 500 or so in matter of 10 minutes, this should not be something that civilians should have. It's a back street to automatic guns without paying $10,000 for a rifle and time to get it registered by the government or getting one off of the black market. It's too easy for something like this to be this attainable. I don't care what you think about guns or what political party you rest with, I hope you see this as something that shouldn't be allowed. And this is coming from a pro-gun conservative. I hope that the NRA recognizes this attachment as a danger to the public.
