Still, this is more of a technicality than a significant difference in the amount of damage possible with a bump stock. A fully automatic weapon shoots about 14 rounds per second. Using a bump stock with a semi automatic AR-15 gave the Las Vegas shooter the ability to fire about 9 shots per second, according to analysis of footage by the New York Times.

 

9x60= a lot of stupid death. 

Like I said, spray and pray did not maximize the death toll, could have killed more with the single aimed shots he started with.

On June 26, 1934 congress stated:

 

For purposes of federal law, a “machinegun” is defined as:

[A]ny weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manually reloading, by a single function of the trigger. The term shall also include the frame or receiver of any such weapon, any part designed and intended solely and exclusively, or combination of parts designed and intended, for use in converting a weapon into a machinegun, and any combination of parts from which a machinegun can be assembled if such parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.12

It's not a single function of the trigger with a bump stock, it's a multiple functions of the trigger rapidly. Therefore not full auto.
