The days of  bump stocks being legal may be numbered. The mechanical device that can covert an assault rife into a machine gun is now under assault itself.

Nine Florida republicans, including all the Tampa Bay congressman, are now voicing their support for a bi-partisan bill to ban bump stocks.

The congressman who's writing the bill is representative Carlos Curbelo of Miami.

After the NRA gave it's blessing to ban them, the growing call from republicans to write it into law is growing louder.

Meanwhile, local gun dealers tell ABC Action News that it's becoming increasingly difficult to buy bump stocks, because online retailers are pulling them off their websites, and that the ATF is already cracking down on the sale of the devices.
