Bumpity

Bump stocks are all the rage again since Trump told the DOJ to make up some laws to ban it. Slidefire’s site is still down, due to volume. I confess, I went over there to buy one just have it. Sebastian with some common sense:

So what do you do? Call on ATF to undertake rule making, where you can control the process under a friendly administration, and make sure whatever comes out is narrowly worded. Also, since its regulation, rather than law, its much easier to change.

And the opposing view, advocating that congress should take it up.

Of course, a ban is not going to eliminate them in the era of 3D printing.

    BAFE Should hold a lunch meeting.

    What about this new order we make a rule making anything that makes weapon a machine gun, illegal?

    Uh, We already have rules for that.

    Great! Send a note to POTUS saying we’ve got it covered. Looks like we’re done here. Who’s buying lunch?

    Yeah, I’ve told numerous people that banning a hunk of plastic that could easily be 3D printed is hardly effective.

    It reminds me of that congressman who wanted to ban tiny ziplock bags to fight the war on drugs.

    “While Trump ran as a pro-gun candidate, this action does not appear to line up with his campaign rhetoric. Instead of further restricting the right to keep and bear arms, Trump should urge Congress to pass H.R. 34, which would repeal gun-free school zones, an issue Trump campaigned on.” – GOA

    About a decade ago, just because it was on clearance sale at a closing sporting goods store, I bought a folding stock for my Ruger 10/22, to go along with my 25-round Butler magazines for it. I turned a reliable, fairly accurate, oft-used birch-stocked 10/22 into an unreliable, completely inaccurate, rubber & metal stocked assault weapon that would get me arrested for owning an illegal assault weapon in New Jersey or California, and caused Diane Feinstein to cry, all for about $75 and just for giggles at the range.

    I changed it back a short while later, because I wanted to use it to hit the center of the target, and the “assault weapon parts” sit in my garage on a shelf. Let my example of Bubba-ing my 10/22 be an example warning against wasting money just for spite on bump stocks. Another big box of ammo will do you much better.

    No, we missed a chance, should have paired making bump stocks an NFA weapon with NCCR and said take it or leave it.

    The Dems would have left it so they don’t want compromise.

    Now Trump and the Reps are making noises about giving up things for nothing.

    Is that really “the art of the deal” (hey, I voted for him, but only because he wasn’t Hillary, still I’ve been somewhat pleased, getting a little worried now).

    I thought about a bump fire stock, then remembered that a box of rubber bands is much cheaper and does the same thing.
