TACOMA, Wash. -- Washington State Patrol's bump stock buy back program continues today (Monday) and returns later this month.

The buyback allows residents to sell their bump stocks to WSP for $150 -- before the new federal law takes effect March 26.

Bump stocks turn semi-automatic weapons into nearly fully automatics.

After March 26, if you're caught with bump stocks, you'll face the same penalty for having a machine gun.

There's still time to turn them in for money back: You can go to any WSP office until 4 p.m. March 18, and then again on March 24-25.

At Sunday's buyback in Tacoma, roughly 80 bump stocks were traded for $150 vouchers. There's a limit of five bump stocks per person for the buyback program.
