LAS VEGAS (AP) — The largest manufacturer of bump stocks, the firearm attachments used by the Las Vegas gunman in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, has filed a claim against the deceased gunman's estate that could divert money expected to go to victims' families.


Slide Fire Solutions says in a court filing that it may be entitled to a portion of Stephen Paddock's estimated $1 million estate, arguing that Paddock's estate should share in any damages the bump stock manufacturer is ordered to pay in a separate class-action lawsuit stemming from the 2017 shooting in which 58 people were killed.
