Who in Congress approved bump stock for rifles used in Las Vegas massacre?

I read two articles (Sources below), in the Chicago Tribune today that implied the GOP is  responsible for approving bump stocks on rifles that modifies a semi- automatic rifle to fire a rapid as a machine gun.

The articles first briefly mention that Congress during President Obama term, approved bump stocks and then blame the GOP for being responsible for squelching Congress efforts for bipartisan action to outlaw bump stocks and impose gun control.

Who is responsible for approving bump stocks?

Buck Passing

“Actually, the French equivalent for buck is “patate chaude” (hot potato). A hot potato is something that you can’t hold between your fingers, and that you thread to your seatmate.”

King Solomon

Proverbs 25:26English Standard Version (ESV)

26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain
is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.

A righteous man falling dozen before the wicked,…. Either falling into calamity and distress by means of the wicked man, through his malice and cunning, and which be seeing, rejoices at; or crouching unto him, bowing before him, yielding to him, not daring to oppose or reprove him; or falling into sin in his presence, which he ever after reproaches him for, and openly exposes him, so that his usefulness is lost; and especially if he joins with the wicked man in his course of living; and particularly if a civil magistrate, and acts unrighteously in his office: he

is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring; like a spring or fountain muddied with the feet of men or beasts; so that; he who was before as a clear spring of flowing water, a fountain of justice to his neighbours, from whom good doctrine and wholesome advice flowed, is now of no use by instruction or example, but the contrary.(Source Gils Bible Commentary HERE)

What’s My Point

In my opinion, news media is corrupt rather than righteous by writing articles that try to pass the buck about what political party approved the bump stock.

Every member in Congress, who by voice vote only,, approved bump stocks possibly so as not to have any trace back to their actual vote, shares responsibility for the possibility of the Las Vegas massacre.

You Decide

Are you as fed up as I am with corrupt politicians who use  childish methods to point fingers to blame on “hot potato” issues, to avoid responsibility for their decisions?

Do you believe some members of Congress and the Media are righteous or “is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring; like a spring or fountain muddied with the feet of men or beasts;
