Gun owners are rushing to buy the same high capacity rifle magazines and bump stocks that were used in the Las Vegas massacre in fear that they are about to be made illegal.

Several online retailers are sold out of magazines including a $189 SureFire model which holds 100 bullets and another, for $149, which holds 60 rounds.

Both were found inside Stephen Paddock’s suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel on Sunday along with a stash of other weapons and accessories which he used to slaughter 58 people and injure 489 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

He had also used an AR-15 bump stock to modify his semi-automatic rifle into a fully-automatic weapon.

Democrats are now pushing for the legal bump stock, which costs between $50 and several hundred dollars, to be outlawed.

It has prompted an ‘overnight’ boost in sales and online traffic for firearms dealers across the country.

One employee at the Pennsylvania based website told DailyMail.com they had never sold one of the $189 100 round SureFire magazines before Sunday’s shooting but they are now out of stock.
