The Trump administration on Tuesday issued a new rule banning the sale of bump stocks—accessories that turn semiautomatic rifles like the AR-15 into fully automatic machine guns. The ban came more than a year after gunman Stephen Paddock used bump stocks to massacre 58 people while wounding 851 others at a concert in Las Vegas. Under the rule change, Americans will have 90 days to destroy their bump stocks or to turn them in to ATF agents. The lobby group Gun Owners of America has promised to sue to prevent the rule from taking effect.
