(NewsReady.com) -The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has refused to hear a challenge on the bump stock ban legislation that was passed after the mass shooting in Las Vegas in 2017. The shooter used a bump stock, resulting in the deaths of 58 individuals. With it, the gunman shot over 1,100 rounds in about 11 minutes.
The Supreme Court has declined to review a federal ban on bump stocks, devices that allow semi-automatic firearms to fire rapidly like machine guns. https://t.co/0SWCa1IAmP

The bump stock ban went into effect in March 2019 with President Donald Trump’s endorsement.
This decision by the SCOTUS has many gun rights advocates concerned about the future of how gun legislation will be handled in the future. The Firearms Policy Foundation, among others, are behind a movement to overturn Trump’s bump stock ban. They believe that it’s one of the numerous instances of unnecessary gun legislation passed in the US.
