November 1st marks one month since the horrible tragedy in Las Vegas that took 59 lives. While there were multiple factors to how a man was able to mow down hundreds from 30+ floors up, one obvious one was the fact that Steven Paddock was able to use a bump stock. Bump stocks are devices that attach to certain type of guns to make them fire faster, turning a semi-automatic into an automatic in a matter of seconds. On Wednesday, Phoenix city council congregated on a petition to ban bump stock devices to be sold. However, Arizona has a state law stating that a city can not pass a local law that does not follow state regulations and Arizona has no law banning the sell of bump stocks. Tyler Allison (11) says, “Arizona has too relaxed gun laws.” If Phoenix was to decide to ban bump stock devices, the State Attorney would have to open an immediate investigation, and Phoenix lawmakers would have a huge lawsuit on their hands. On November 2 Phoenix city denied the bump stock ban petition, but agreed to support legislation related to the same topic at the state level. Charlotte Yang (11) says, “I think they should be banned because there is no need for them.” Although the petition failed, it proposes the question as to why nothing pertaining to the sell of this highly dangerous device is being done about at the state level. Cain Ortiz (11) says, “I hope the state can do something about letting people sell these.”
