WALLACE: Well, let’s just talk about the underlying behavior. You’re the NRA, so we’re going to talk to you about the specific technique. Would you be OK with banning bump stocks?

COX: Well, we don’t believe that bans have ever worked on anything. What we’ve said has been very clear, that if something transfers a semiautomatic to function like a fully automatic, then it ought to be regulated differently. Fully automatics are regulated differently in this country. If something copies a semiautomatic into a fully automatic, then those should be related as well.
