BUMP STOCKS FOX

Reviewing their regulations on bump stocks -- a kit the las vegas shooter used to fire more rounds at a quicker rate.

Here in northwest arkansas many gun shops refuse to sell the kit because of how dangerous it can be.

Fox 24's haley hughey -- live in studio -- to show us why gun shops are taking bump stocks off the shelves.

((haley)) bump stocks are an add-on feature you can get on a semi- automatic rifle.

Gun shop owners i spoke with say people get them for all different reasons like saving money and getting a cheap thrill.

But as we all saw in las vegas -- they can be extremely deadly.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "it's made to simulate a fully automatic weapon."

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "it shoots very fast.

They're very difficult to operate."

((haley)) bump stocks---a gun add-on-- are now under review from the nra.

This comes days after investigators say the gunman in the las vegas concert attack utilized the kit to carry out the deadliest shooting in modern u.s. history.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "this wasn't a responsible gun owner."

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "the person has to be responsible, and they have to accept that responsibility."

((haley)) ken parker -- owner of parker's indoor gun range in rogers -- says he refuses to sell or use bump stocks.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "i wouldn't own one for me, because the way it operates is very unusual."

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "if you don't control that just exactly right, you'll hurt yourself."

((haley)) parker says what happened in las vegas took some training.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "you can't just put one on, and then walk out and start shooting and it sound like las vegas.

That just isn't going to happen.

It takes quite a bit of practice and effort to make one shoot like that."

"we don't shoot bump stocks here at the range because of that reason right there."

((haley)) most stores we spoke with say they are pulling bump stocks off the shelves -- but according to parker..

They're easy to get online.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "you can buy them online.

They're pretty easy to put on.

You can go to youtube and see the videos of how to do it.

You can go to youtube and give reviews about particular ones."

((haley)) the range owner adds he hasn't seen a spike in sales this week -- but does warn gun owners they may have to start shelling out more cash to get their hands on a kit.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "i really don't expect anything as far as availability to change.

I do expect prices to go up from outside pressure."

((haley)) after such a deadly shooting -- parker isn't opposed to the nra making some changes to their policies on bump stocks.

Ken parker, parker's indoor gun range, owner "they haven't been out for a long time.

So, if that was going to be reviewed i would have no problem with that."

### ((haley)) i did speak with one local gun shop in springdale that sold out of their bump stocks this week.

They say they don't plan on re-ordering them.
