However, there are serious problems with ’s approach. 1st, his own agency has warned that it does not have the authority to ban bump stocks. The only way to close this loophole permanently is through legislation. 2/

Republicans in Congress & the White House, led by , have held fast to the belief that better laws won’t curb the epidemic of gun violence in this country. That they’re now reversing that belief & exploring policy changes to curb gun violence is a welcome shift. 1/
