Senior Republicans on Capitol Hill are expressing openness to the idea of a ban on "bump stocks" like the shooter in Las Vegas apparently used to make semi-automatic rifles perform more like fully automatic weapons.

The comments from the No. 2 Senate Republican and others are an unusual departure from the GOP Congress' general antipathy to gun regulations. But the comments don't clear the way for action.
