In a move that has caught some people by surprise the National Rifle Association (NRA) has called on the ATF to regulate the use of the butt-stock system that is used on rifles like the AR-15 to make them fire more rapidly. These essentially turn semi-automatic weapons into fully automatic weapons, that have been outlawed since the 1930s. These systems were on several of the weapons used by Stephen Pollack in his murderous rampage in Las Vegas. In reality, few shooters use the systems because they cause the weapons to be inaccurate if not used by experts. Interestingly, the NRA wants the limitations to be done by ATF regulations and not by Congressional action that could include other gun control provisions.
