Bump stocks illegal come Tuesday, WSP handing out $150 for each device
YAKIMA, Wash. -- Now's your last chance to get rid of your bump stocks, before they soon become illegal.
The Washington State Patrol is handing out $150 for each bump stock (up to five) that people can drop off at any of the WSP offices.
Bump stocks replace the standard stock and grip of a semi-automatic gun and allows the gun to fire rapidly, similar to an automatic weapon.
If you do drop off your bump stocks, troopers say they can be commercially or homemade, but you'll only get the $150 for the commercial ones.
As of Sunday morning, local troopers say they collected 19 bump stocks, but statewide they've managed to collect over 500.
