President Donald Trump made a push to ban the use of bump stocks on Tuesday.

That news has people talking, including people at a firearms shop in Onslow County, who had mixed reactions to the news.

"We've sold them throughout the years but it's no significant number," said Seth John, manager of Sportsman's Lodge in Jacksonville. "Every once and a while we would have a customer come in who would want one."

John said in his opinion the accessory is pointless and is only used to waste bullets. The recent push to have them banned is no surprise to him.

"I would expect to see a lot of possible bans coming into play when it comes to certain things and if not, a lot of regulations," John said.

Those possible bans and regulations are something that Jack Trembly, a Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune, says probably won't do much.

"People want something, they are going to get it in their hands either way," Trembly said.
