WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers need to examine "bump stock" accessories that turn some guns into rapid-fire weapons, Republican U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday.

"Clearly that's something we need to look into," Ryan told radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt. An excerpt from the interview aired on MSNBC.
