President Trump, however, called for the Justice Department to act on the bump-stock devices, which were attached to rifles used in the October 1 massacre in Las Vegas, in which 58 concert-goers were slaughtered by a lone gunman firing from a high-rise hotel.
"Unfortunately, we are all now keenly aware of how this device operates and believe that this renewed review and determination will keep our citizens safe and ensure that federal law is enforced", the nine Republicans wrote a year ago. The move came four months after a gunman in Las Vegas used a bump stock to fire down on concertgoers, killing 58 people, the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. "I look forward to working with the President's School Safety Commission to identify other ways to keep our country and our children safe, and I thank the President for his courageous leadership on this issue".
The Trump administration has formally proposed a complete ban on bump stocks, which effectively convert assault rifles into machine guns, on the eve of a nationwide protest for firearms control. The "March For Our Lives" will be led by survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14 in Parkland, Florida.
The president hailed the announcement Friday on Twitter. The rules would be amended so that bump stock-type devices would be defined as a "machine gun" under federal law.

The fact that ATF said as recently as April 2017 that it lacks the authority would give the gun lobby and its allies even more reason to file a lawsuit to block regulations banning bump stocks".
"I expect these regulations to be finalized, Jeff, very soon", Trump added.
