An effort to ban bump stocks in Tennessee has failed, the Associated Press reports. While President Donald Trump has shown support for a ban on bump stocks following their use in a mass shooting in Las Vegas last year, the proposal didn’t generate enough Republican support at the Tennessee legislature to pass. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Lee Harris, D-Memphis, and Rep. Dwayne Thompson, D-Cordova.
