A federal banning ban starts Tuesday. Here's what it means for owners



The Ministry of Justice issued the rule in December and decided that existing bans on fully automatic weapons also included shock absorbers.

Owners got 90 days to deposit or destroy them, and that period ends Tuesday.

The bump stocks came under scrutiny after the massacre in October 2017 in Las Vegas. Stephen Paddock opened fire from his hotel package at outdoor consulting company with rifles equipped with shock absorbers and killed 58 people and injured hundreds of others.

The Supreme Court on Monday night received at least two emergency reports and asked the judges to put an end to the bump stock.

In one case outside the District of Columbia, Guedes is called the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, two individuals who own shock absorbers and three groups say the DC Court has not yet decided on its appeal. They ask the justice to put some judgment pending 48 hours after it comes down, so the groups can file a quick appeal to the Supreme Court.

In another case outside the 6th circle, Gun Owners of America and other individuals ask for a stay, as they say the ordinance issued by the Trump administration comes into effect at midnight Monday. They say the administration's rule mandates the destruction of more than 500,000 bumblebees valued at over $ 1

00 million.

They argue for the final clause "well over a decade of consistent ATF classification of bumblebees as unregulated firearms accessories."

This is what to know about bumblebees, the ban and what owners need to do:
