Trump moves to outlaw 'bump stocks,' consider other steps after Florida shooting

US President Donald Trump has said his administration would take steps to ban an accessory that enables a rifle to shoot hundreds of rounds a minute as he considers additional firearms restrictions after last week's school shooting in Florida. Tightening gun laws would mark a change in course for Trump, who has championed gun rights during his campaign and presidency. 

The mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school - where 17 people were killed - has reignited a drive to curb access to firearms.  Trump directed the US Justice Department to quickly complete a proposed rule that would treat "bump stocks" as machine guns, which could effectively outlaw them in the United States. 
The move came in response to an October massacre in Las Vegas, where a gunman used a bump-stock-equipped rifle to kill 58 people. It put Trump at odds with the powerful National Rifle Association, which has opposed bump-stock restrictions and would allow him to bypass Congress, where a bump-stock ban has failed to advance.
