Delaware’s House of Representatives has approved a ban on bump stocks that turn a semi-automatic rifle into a near automatic weapon.
The measure was approved by a vote of 25-to-2.
There were 11 Republicans not voting.
WBOC reports that the measure was primarily backed by Democrats who said the device was an attempt to circumvent the federal ban on automatic weapons.
Opponents of the measure argued that it required people who legally bought the device to turn them over to law enforcement.
