Investigators continue to look into possible motives behind the shooting in Las Vegas. The gunman had two so-called "bump stocks" in his possession, according to the Associated Press. The accessory, which is legal, can convert semi-automatic weapons into fully automatic firearms. Independent Journal Review Senior Editor Jason Howerton says America's conversation over gun control is "unhealthy," and that Congress needs to immediately address the legality of this device. It has yet to be confirmed the gunman in the Las Vegas massacre used bump stocks. As a gun owner himself, Howerton says he sees no reason for bump stocks to remain legal.
