ATF accepting public comments on backdoor bump stock gun control

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is currently accepting public comment on their plans for backdoor bump stock gun control.
On December 22 Breitbart News reported a Department of Justice announcement that the ATF would be seeking to redefine the term “machinegun,” so as to include aftermarket devices that do not convert semiautomatic firearms into fully automatic weapons. As of now, only mechanisms/alterations that truly convert a semi-action into a full-action are governed by the National Firearms Act (1934). The efforts to redefine the term “machinegun” center on new controls for devices that merely “mimic” full auto fire.

    No, you’re going to need 5. And you’ll need them for all of the pants in your closet, too.

    Defund the ATF and put those ” agents ” on border patrol.

    I had an argument with a friend that is a spineless RINO who argued that “bump stocks” were capable of making a semi auto weapon a full auto and should be banned. I asked him to google “poor mans machine gun on youtube” and see how a rubber band could be used to have the same effect as an “ehvile bump stock”. So are we going to outlaw rubber bands? There is also a video of a man who (with a little practice) while shooting from the hip, pushes forward on the weapon while holding the trigger finger steady allows the recoil to move the weapon back and forth achieving the same “ehvile bump fire effect”. So now we will have to outlaw fingers?

    All liberty is dangerous and will be outlawed in any society dominated by cowards and tyrants.

      Exactly.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
