Cicilline Statement on DOJ's Bump Stock Rule

Saturday, December 1, 2018

PAWTUCKET - Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01), who authored the Automatic Gunfire Prevention Act, which is co-sponsored by 175 members of the House and 41 members of the Senate, issued the following statement today:

“It should not have taken more than a year since Las Vegas to get to this point, but it's a step in the right direction. In order to permanently end the threat that bump stocks pose to public safety, Congress must act. The Automatic Gunfire Prevention Act will stop, once and for all, the sale of these devices that turn semi-automatic rifles into the functional equivalent of machine guns. Both chambers of Congress should pass this bill as soon as possible.”
