Eugene, Ore.--The Federal ban on bump stocks is going into effect Tuesday.
Gun owners had 90 days to throw away or destroy their bump stocks, and Tuesday is the deadline.
Last year, President Trump called on the Justice Department to outlaw the devices after a gunman in Las Vegas unleashed rounds from 24 guns, killing 58 concertgoers and injuring more than 500.
The Justice Department issued a ruling, declaring an existing ban on fully automatic weapons, that would also apply to bump stocks.
Gun owners are able to drop off their bump stocks at their local Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives office, but by appointment only.
