Gun owners are snapping up bump-fire stocks in fear that lawmakers will soon ban them in the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting.

“Scores of online retailers have sold out of the devices, which enable a semiautomatic weapon to mimic the functionality of a machine gun,” states a report in The Trace, a web site that reports on gun violence.

The shooter used the device to help him kill 59 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas and injure scores more.

WalMart and Cabela’s are apparently no longer selling the devices, according to The Trace,

Another company, Slide Fire, has announced on its web site that it is “temporarily” suspending taking new orders, so the company can deal with all the orders it already has.

U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) has introduced a bill that would ban bump-fire stocks.
