Ohio U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, said he will back the bill, introduced Wednesday by Sen.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, who joined Feinstein at the event announcing the legislation, invoked the sounds of the gunfire now heard widely on television and across social media, saying "the searing noise of that staccato firing should be a wake-up call to this Congress" and "ought to be echoing in our minds". She's joined by other Democrats.
"We have to use different tools and different tactics for the right situations", she said.
In the House, a bill from Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., would focus on bump stocks and leave out restrictions on other gun accessories. Oklahoma Republican Tom Cole spoke yesterday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" reacting to the Las Vegas massacre. It would not outlaw any weapons.
Also known by the brand name Slide Fire, bump-fire stocks, or "bump stocks", modify such rifles as an AR-15 to "allow it to fire in rapid succession or automatic fire", said Sam Rabadi, a retired ATF special agent.

Portman said the bill could unfairly impinge on innocent transfers, such as giving a hunting rifle to a second cousin. Meadows said he doesn't understand why someone would want to buy one. Fully 57 percent said they backed stricter laws in the first poll; just 47 percent said so a few months later, a rate of a little less than one point per *week* in declining enthusiasm in the interim. Maybe. Maybe not. We strongly suspect the hundreds of dead and wounded in Las Vegas would dearly love to have had such a provision in place before the shots began raining down Sunday night. Guns are involved in the deaths of more than 33,000 people in the United States annually, about two-thirds of which are suicides.
The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees "the right to bear arms" - a broad mandate that courts ave interpreted as a almost unfettered license to own firearms. But debate rages over how far the regulation can go, and congressional Republicans, many with political backing from the NRA, are loath to push the question. Now the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history has drawn attention to the devices, which critics say flout federal restrictions on automatic guns.
"A ban on bump-stock devices takes away the $200 device poorer citizens can buy to at least pretend to be shooting the real machines they will never be able to afford", Hawkins wrote. "The best part is we all know there are people who watched this, shared it and commented on the video who fully believe what he did would actually work". Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has expressed reservations about moving too quickly and told Politico he was anxious about starting down a slippery slope of gun legislation.
