Blumenthal had a message for the commander in chief.
”Mr. President, in visiting Las Vegas today, I hope you will provide leadership and, at the very least, back a bill that stops the killer accelerators like these bump stocks. This device has no purpose but to convert an already deadly weapon into a completely lethal carnage force multiplier,” said Blumenthal.
Authorities say the shooter in Las Vegas used that type of device when he shot into the crowd of some 20,000 people at that outdoor concert on Sunday.
