Gun Groups Seek Halt to Bump Stock Ban 03/26 06:20

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Gun rights groups are asking the Supreme Court to stop 
the Trump administration from beginning to enforce its ban on bump stock 
devices, which allow semi-automatic weapons to fire like machine guns.

   The groups asked the court Monday to get involved in the issue and keep the 
government from beginning to enforce the ban for now. The ban set to go into 
effect Tuesday has put the Trump administration in the unusual position of 
arguing against gun rights groups. It's unclear how quickly the court will act.

   President Donald Trump said last year that the government would move to ban 
bump stocks. The action followed a 2017 shooting in Las Vegas in which a gunman 
attached bump stocks to assault-style rifles he used to shoot concertgoers. 
Fifty-eight people were killed.
