Press Release

Washington, DC  – This morning, Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) issued the following statement regarding proposed regulation of bump stock devices: 

“As the details of the shooting in Las Vegas have become clearer, it's evident that action must be taken with regard to devices that modify semi-automatic weapons like bump stocks. Right now we have strict regulations on automatic weapons, but these devices allow an individual to easily convert legal firearms into an automatic weapon. That should not be the case, and that's why I will support measures to regulate or ban these types of devices.”
