The Trump administration is rolling out a new federal regulation which will officially ban bump stocks, following support by the NRA.
The move, signed by acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker Tuesday, will prohibit the use and sales of attachments used to modify fire arms into automatic weapons.
Department of Justice officials said owners of bump stocks will have 90-days to either destroy or surrender them.
This comes a year after President Trump took action against the devices following the Las Vegas massacre, where a gunman rigged bump stocks to his guns and killed dozens of people attending a concert.
The regulation will go into effect after it is formally published on Friday.
