figures out a way not to do his job.
Speaker Paul Ryan suggested Wednesday that House Republicans would prefer that the executive branch overturn the regulation that has allowed bump stocks, a device used by the Las Vegas shooter, rather than a legislative fix. 
At his weekly news conference, the Wisconsin Republican said that a regulatory fix by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) would be the "smartest, quickest fix..."
