On Tuesday, President Trump signed a memorandum proposing a ban on bump stocks.

Bump stocks are devices that make semi-automatic guns fire more like automatic weapons. Despite the memorandum, an East Texas gun store owner explains he doesnt think it will make much of an impact.

Mack Woods, owner of the Shootist Gun and Knife Store in Tyler says, While I know that they're all potentially deadly, they're just 'big boy toys' There is not really any serious purpose for them, but they're just fun to play with."

Woods doesn
t sell bump stocks at his store and doesnt believe a ban would have much of an impact on East Texas. He says the accessory isnt popular in the area, but like many guns and accessories, when their future is in question, they often start flying off the shelves.
