DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Texas company says it will stop selling "bump stocks" next month.

The company Slide Fire, based in Shackleford County near Abilene, is currently the largest manufacturer of the device that can allow a semi-automatic rifle to shoot much like an automatic.

Bump stocks were allegedly used by the man who killed 58 people in Las Vegas last October and the bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms has issued a proposed ban after President Trump called for a review of the rules.

There is currently a 90-day comment period underway on the agency's plan.

If the ban goes into effect after June 27, it would mean people would have to destroy their bump stocks or turn them in.
