Democrats, Republicans and even the National Rifle Association are calling for legislation to regulate or possibly ban the sale of bump stocks, a device making semi-automatic rifles function as automatic weapons. The Nevada man who authorities say killed 59 concertgoers and injured hundreds more while firing out of a Las Vegas hotel room reportedly used bump stocks on at least some of his weapons. Since the attack and subsequent calls for regulation, prices of bump stocks have more than tripled as demand has skyrocketed.
If you owned a gun shop, what would you do with your inventory of bump stocks in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting?

I wouldn't sell them in the first place.

My first thought was, 'it depends on how many of them I have in stock and how well my business is doing.' But listening to the guy who sold Paddock a gun before the shooting, it was clear that his conscience is his guide and I thought he was a pretty good model.

Most gun shops are for serious mentally stable people who either want guns for self defense or for sporting purposes. Bump stocks are a gimmick that serves neither purpose. They are a stupid device that only proves that legislators don't have a clue about guns and the needs and purposes for them.

I'd raise the prices to make the products less attractive and to preserve my inventory.

And also get rid of all semi automatic.

Gun legislation WILL NOT stop criminals. Let's spend time on legislation that will actually have a positive effect.

If it was my gun shop, I wouldn't have been selling them anyway, nor would I sell automatic weapons of any kind. No civilian needs them.

This whole bump-stock hysteria is a red herring.
