Calling Rep. Charlie Collins: Will you sponsor legislation to ban bump stocks, the devices that turn semi-automatic weapons into automatic weapons of mass slaughter, such as used in the Las Vegas Massacre?

AP notes that some cities and states have introduced legislation to do this, including states led by Republican governors. (City gun control laws are outlawed by Arkansas law.)

Better still, the six Arkansans in Congress could get behind federal legislation to ban the device. French Hill? Steve Womack? Rick Crawford? Bruce Westerman? Tom Cotton? John Boozman? I know. The odds of a sensible vote for gun safety from this group is a fantasy.

The gun crowd says a ban won’t accomplish anything, so why bother, an argument you could raise for just about any law on the books.
