Talk about a sobering moment. This is body cam footage just released from the LVPD.
In this video you see members of the Vegas PD trying to figure out where the rapid gun fire is coming from. At one point, the wall the officers are crouched behind is riddled with bullets.
The latest report about the shooter, is this son of a bitch (I refuse to his his name) had 12 bump stocks. What is a "bump-stock?"
Jill Snyder, special agent for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), said 12 of the guns found in the gunman's hotel room were fitted with so-called "bump-stocks".
The device basically replaces the gun's shoulder rest, with a "support step" that covers the trigger opening. By holding the pistol grip with one hand and pushing forward on the barrel with the other, the shooter's finger comes in contact with the trigger. The recoil causes the gun to buck back and forth, "bumping" the trigger.
Technically, that means the finger is pulling the trigger for each round fired, keeping the weapon a legal semi-automatic. Yea, but it simulates an automatic.
