Polk Sheriff Backs "Bump Stock" Ban

WINTER HAVEN (970 WFLA) -- A Florida sheriff who's defended the rights of gun owners and encouraged people to arm themselves in the past, draws the line at "bump stocks."

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says he's calling on Congress to outlaw devices designed to make any non-automatic or semi-automatic firearm function as fully automatic. 

Las Vegas detectives say the shooter in last Sunday's massacre used bump stocks on his weapons. 

Judd says he consulted with gun owners and dealers, and say they agree the devices have no legitimate purpose. 

Miami Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo is backing legislation to ban bump stocks.
