Meet the only person in the US who can legally own a bump stock

by Melissa Quinn  |  published on April 10, 2019

Clark Aposhian added a bump stock to his firearms collection about a year before a gunman using the devices, which let semi-automatic weapons fire more rapidly, killed nearly five dozen people at a Las Vegas music festival.

Today, the 54-year-old gun lobbyist is the only person in the U.S. legally allowed to own one. The exception comes via an order from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that granted a temporary exemption to a Justice Department ban following the massacre. The ruling applies exclusively to him and is for the “time required to adequately consider and rule on” a pending motion.

 Other gun rights advocates and organizations have attempted to obtain a similar exemption to no avail, though their legal challenges and Aposhian’s are continuing in federal courts from coast to coast. The Supreme Court alone received three different requests to halt enforcement of the bump stock ban and rejected all of them.
