CNN)The Trump administration rolled out a new federal regulation Tuesday officially banning bump-fire stocks.

Those who possess the devices, which make it easier to fire rounds from a semi-automatic weapon by harnessing the gun's recoil to "bump" the trigger faster, will have 90 days to turn in or otherwise destroy them from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register -- likely this Friday -- according to senior DOJ officials.
======================================================
Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people.

This isn't going to go over well at the NRA, now mostly insolvent.

I highly doubt this will become a "they are coming for your guns" issue as everyone is making this out to be. I doubt the NRA will make a huge issue of it either, they have no alternative these days.
