Massachusetts state Rep. David Linsky has filed legislation that would ban the sale and possession of bump stocks in the commonwealth.

Bump stocks are devices that can give a semi-automatic rifle near fully automatic shooting speeds and are believed to have been used by the Las Vegas shooter. The legislation also seeks to ban large capacity magazines.
