The National Rifle Association's firing range in Virginia is one of many that long ago banned bump stocks from being used, due to safety concerns, Politico reports.

The devices, like the one used by the Las Vegas mass murderer to convert his weapons to full automatic, decrease accuracy and are less safe in closed quarters.

"If someone is not trained to fire rapidly, they may miss and hit things like the ceiling of the range and other areas which could cause damage and safety issues," Paul Valone, president of Grass Roots North Carolina, told Politico.

"Because it’s notoriously inaccurate, it’s really not a threat to anybody except in one and only one circumstance, and that’s when you’re on the 32nd floor of a building shooting into a mass of people," Valone said.

Automatic weapons also are typically banned at ranges, Valone told Politico.
