Compliance: Bump-Stock TYPE Devices

The bump stock ban rule is out. Bump-fire stocks are now machineguns. To power-crazed tyrants, anyway. But, since FOPA forbids possession of machineguns manufactured or imported later than May 1986, you’ll have to get rid of them.

You want to be good, right?

I suppose you could simply destroy your bump-fire stock, but if the ATF gets hold of some retailers’ customer list and comes knocking, you’ll want some proof that you already complied. You could hang on to the properly cut up pieces (you do have an oxy-acetylene torch?) and show them that.

    California took a run at righting legislation to ban Bump Stock. Through their process some one discovered that a Bump Stock Gun was still a Semi Auto Weapon. Not a full auto gun after all. That legislation quickly morphed into limiting the Rate Of Fire on semi auto weapons to “As Manufactured”. Meaning if you purchase a trick cassette style trigger with a shorter reset for your fav boom stick, you’re breaking the law. That legislation went down in flames. Shocking. But the way this legislation is to be worded is very dangerous.

    Isn’t the shoelace ruling still in effect? If so, all shoelaces will need to be sent in.

    Also, I have been bumpfiring with my fingers for over 30 years; are they coming to cut off my fingers?

    My final thought: bumpfiring is a waste of ammo. Aimed fire Rules. Certainly fight them at every turn, but don’t sweat this one privately.

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