Las Vegas: Stephen Paddock used legal ‘bump stock’ to shoot faster, but is less accurate.

The New York Times reported that ‘bump stock’ was on the weapons used by Stephan Paddock, the now infamous mass killer of 58 persons on October 1.

– The trigger process Vs. traditional non-bump stock semi-auto weapon, is quicker.
– Helps, less capable/talented users with quicker trigger process.
– However, total average accuracy is disputed.

In the same case, a bump stock does not make the weapon ‘more’ deadly. It’s an experiential device for the legal weapon owner. As YouTube presenter “LegallyArmedAmerica” below indicates, a competent criminal would ‘not’ use a bump stock to do the murdering.

It is legal to purchase bump stock accessories and usually cost around $99 each.
