Bump Stock Maker Back in Market
(Slide Fire)

Bump stock maker Slide Fire is back in the firearms market a month after the Las Vegas shooting, according to an email from the company.

Slide Fire came under heavy criticism for reportedly selling the device that enabled Stephen Paddock to modify his semi-automatic rifle to fire more rapidly into the crowd at the music festival, leaving killing 58 people killed and hundreds more injured.

Following the shooting, Slide Fire suspended sales of the device from its website, stating “we have decided to temporarily suspend taking new orders in order to provide the best service with those already placed,” Newsweek reported.

However, the company announced in an email via The Trace that it had made a limited quantity of bump stock models available for purchase on Wednesday.

In the weeks following the Las Vegas massacre, Democrats and Republicans in Congress introduced a bill to ban the sale of bump stock.

House Speaker Paul Ryan called for a regulatory fix and, according to CNN, several Republican senators issued a letter to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives urging it to review its policy on bump fire stock.

The National Rifle Association supported this motion, appealing to the ATF for regulation of the device, saying that bump-fire stocks should be reviewed to comply with federal law.

The Huffington Post reported that, in previous years, ATF issued memos stating it did not have authority to deem bump stocks illegal based on existing gun laws.

A spokeswoman, Amanda Hils, said the matter was being reviewed by the Justice Department, adding that the decision required technical and legal expertise.
