City Council unanimously votes to ban bump stocks

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Lincoln City Council voted unanimously Monday evening in support of an ordinance that would ban bump stocks.

Lincoln joins Denver and Columbia, South Carolina as communities with bump stock bans.

Massachusetts and New Jersey have also enacted laws prohibiting the sale and possession of the devices, which were attached to a half-dozen of the long guns found in the hotel room of the Las Vegas shooter who in October killed 58 people and injured hundreds more attending a nearby outdoor concert.

A little over a dozen other states are also considering bans on bump stocks.

President Donald Trump directed the Justice Department in February to move to ban devices like the rapid-fire bump stocks used in last year’s Las Vegas massacre.
