The proposed class action lawsuit, filed in state court in Clark County, Nevada, over the weekend and announced on Tuesday, accuses Slide Fire Solutions and other unnamed manufacturers of negligence leading to the infliction of emotional distress on thousands of people who witnessed or were injured in the October 1 shooting at a Las Vegas music festival.

The lawsuit, announced Tuesday, was filed last week on behalf of the shooting victims and targets Slide Fire Solutions, as well as manufacturers, sellers and marketers of bump stocks.

A Las Vegas law firm and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence have filed a class-action lawsuit against businesses profiting off bump stocks, devices used in the October 1 shooting that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more at a Las Vegas music festival.

Gunman Stephen Paddock had 12 rifles mounted with bump stocks when he fired from his 32nd floor suite in the Mandalay Hotel at the street-level Route 91 Harvest Festival, before killing himself.

The lawsuit was filed with support from the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, a USA nonprofit organization that advocates gun control.

Moran, Texas-based Slide Fire did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Since the shooting, a bipartisan mix of members of Congress have called for a ban on bump stocks, while the National Rifle Association has suggested the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives should revisit the devices and determine if they should be subject to greater restrictions. The Nevada plaintiffs are seeking unspecified punitive damages.

Fully automatic weapons have been heavily restricted in the United States since the enactment of the National Firearms Act more than 80 years ago. "The NRA believes that devices created to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations". The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has not identified the maker of the bump stocks used in Las Vegas.
