National Rifle Association backs calls for new curbs

AFP, WASHINGTON

“Mr. president, you know what the right thing to do is,” US Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, calling on US President Donald Trump, who visited Las Vegas on Wednesday and met with victims and first responders, to support a ban on bump stocks.

While Republicans like senators Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn were open to hearings on bump stocks, not all Republicans were on board.

“I think this is about chipping away at the Second Amendment,” US Senator John Kennedy said, referring to the clause in the US Constitution that guarantees citizens the right to bear arms.
