“Sliding butt” is recognized as a machine gun

US Department of Justice intends to outlaw burst firing device

Attorney General – US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said his agency intends to change federal rules to classify semi-automatic weapons equipped with “sliding butts” as automatic.

The so-called “sliding butts” allow you to fire bursts of semi-automatic weapons. These stocks were used in a mass shooting in Las Vegas last year, which killed 58 people and injured hundreds..

In the United States, automatic weapons are prohibited from selling to private individuals, and their possession is illegal. That is, a change in the classification at the federal level will lead to the actual ban of these devices throughout the country..

US citizens will have 90 days to comment on the Justice Department’s proposal, but the federal authorities have the final say on changing the weapons classification..
