GOP Rep Supports Gun Control for Bump Stocks

Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) used an October 5 press release to announce his support for gun control for bump stocks.

His announcement was tweeted by KCTV’s Emily Sinovic with the hashtag #GunControl.

In the announcement, Yoder inaccurately claims bump stocks “convert legal firearms into an automatic weapon.” In actuality, the ATF approved bump stocks in 2010 because they do not convert semiautomatics into full auto. Rick Vasquez, former acting chief of the Firearms Technology Branch of the ATF, told USA Today that bump stocks were legalized because they are “an accessory, not a conversion device.”
