Officials say the gunman in the Las Vegas massacre rigged some of his weapons with a device known as a “bump stock” that enables legal semiautomatic rifles to fire more rapidly.

Wednesday, several congressional Republicans started to show cautious interest in legislation that would restrict devices that enable semi-automatic rifles to fire rapidly like automatic weapons. Utah Rep. Mia Love released a statement saying she is “willing to consider further rules for devices, known as ‘bump stocks’.”

“I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment, and will not support any bill that takes the right to bear arms away from law-abiding citizens,” Rep Love said.  “However, any device that converts a legal firearm to an illegal firearm deserves closer scrutiny.”

Thursday, the NRA announced that it supports a review of bump fire stocks to see if they are in accordance with federal law.

After seeing Rep. Love’s statement Congressman Chris Stewart tweeted that he thinks “this type of modification to a gun should be controlled.”

The Las Vegas massacre left 58 dead and over 500 injured.
