Retailers Pulling "Bump Stocks" Used by Las Vegas Mass Shooter Off Their Shelves

Two major US retailers have pulled "bump stocks" off their virtual and physical shelves this week after a gunman used the devices in Las Vegas to modify his weapons to fire nearly as fast as automatic weapons. The attack on Sunday, which left 58 people dead and more than 480 wounded, is the worst mass shooting in modern US history and has prompted widespread scrutiny of the "bump stocks," which transform a rifle to act like an illegal automatic weapon. Walmart pulled the bump stocks off its online retail site this week, and on Friday, Cabela's confirmed it was pulling the devices off the shelves of their 80-plus stores across the US. Despite the response from some big retailers, there were signs that demand for the device, which began selling at a large scale at gun retailers back in 2010, has spiked days after the Las Vegas shooting.
