CHARLES HURT: Any bump stocks that were on the shelves after -- after the Las Vegas shooting are flying off the shelves right now.

One of the things that I think a lot of people miss about what people love about guns, they love the brilliant mechanic ingenuity that goes into them. They are very -- you know, they are very complex, beautiful, graceful machines, and that's how the bump stock came around.

And so, as you point out, the questions will be how broad is this? Because, of course, whoever came up with the bump stock to begin with can easily come up with something else that does the same thing.

CHARLES LANE: Yeah, I think what that guy in Las Vegas loved about it was how it enabled him to kill 58 people.
