NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two Tennessee lawmakers have introduced a bill that would ban bump stocks across the state.
Senator Lee Harris and Representative Dwayne Thompson filed the legislation on Wednesday.
“If we want to limit the number of people a mass shooter can kill we should move quickly to ban the sale of bump stocks in Tennessee,” Senator Harris said.

A few weeks the National Rifle Association (NRA) even suggested a federal review of the devices.
