Do you favor banning "bump stock" devices? (Which enable a semi-auto be used almost like an auto) [View all]

Gunman had a 'bump-stock' device that could speed fire
The gunman who unleashed hundreds of rounds of gunfire on a crowd of concertgoers in Las Vegas had two "bump-stock" devices.
The devices could have converted semi-automatic firearms into fully automatic ones, officials said.
A semi-automatic weapon requires one trigger pull for each round fired. With a fully automatic firearm, one trigger pull can unleash continuous rounds until the magazine is empty.
