President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the Senate should stop working on banning bump stocks – the devices that turn single-shot rifles into rapid-fire machine guns – because ‘I’ll do that myself.’
‘You don’t have to complicate the bill by adding another two paragraphs. We’re getting rid of it,’ he told a bipartisan group of U.S. senators at the White House.
‘We can do that with an executive order,’Trump said.
‘I’m going to write the bump stock essentially, write it out. So you won’t have to worry about bump stocks. Shortly that will be gone. We can focus on other things.’
‘We’ll have that done pretty quickly. They’re working on it right now, the lawyers,’ he added.
