Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Maker Of Bump Stock Used In Shooting

Three people who attended the Route 91 Harvest festival have filed a class action lawsuit against the maker of the device shooter Stephen Paddock used to modify semi-automatic rifles to fire at almost the same rate as automatics.  

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the suit was filed in Clark County court on behalf of everyone who attended the festival.  

Plaintiff Devon Prescott and two others name the maker of the bump stock device, Slide Fire Solutions of Moran, Texas, and other unidentified manufacturers, as defendants.

The lawsuit says the class does not challenge the right to bear arms but says that Slide Fire negligently sells bump stocks to gun owners to get around state and federal laws banning the use of automatic weapons.  

The law firms filing the suit are the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Las Vegas law firm of Eglet Prince.  One of Eglet’s attorneys representing plaintiffs in the case is State Senator Aaron Ford.
