UPDATE: Hawaii lawmakers pass bill banning bump stocks in Hawaii
Hawaii lawmakers are discussing two bills that would tighten the state's already strict gun regulations.
HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii lawmakers passed a bill banning bump stocks in Hawaii.
Senate Bill 2046 prohibits owning bump stocks, multi-burst trigger activators and trigger cranks, and prohibits the manufacture, import, sale and transfer of the devices.
The same device was used by the gunman in the Las Vegas shooting last October that killed 58 people. Bump stocks allow guns to be fired like assault weapons.
Massachusetts, New Jersey and Washington state have each banned the devices since the Las Vegas shooting.
The bill will now go to the Governors desk for consideration.
