LAPD Union Supports Ban of ‘Bump Stocks’

The Los Angeles Police Protective League has thrown its support behind a national effort to ban certain gun accessories and encourage police and professional sports teams to work together to improve encounters between officers and residents.

The union that represents thousands of rank-and-file LAPD officers joined several other big-city police unions and the San Francisco 49ers in the effort.

The organizations signed a pledge to work with lawmakers to ban armor-piercing ammunition, gun silencers and “bump stocks” — the latter of which landed on the national radar after a gunman used them in the Las Vegas massacre this month.
They also promised to advocate for expanded mental health services and work with teams, businesses and other groups to put together public service announcements centered on how to improve police-community relationships.
