Bump-fire Banned

Let me drop this here before the sun sets.

Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a mandated comment period. We will BAN all devices that turn legal weapons into illegal machine guns.

— Donald J. Trump, 1:50 PM – 23 Mar 20181:50 PM – 23 Mar 2018

In case you’ve forgotten how stupid (and contrary to physical reality) this is.

And yes; The Zelman Partisans opposes this. Accepting this is in no way a compromise. We did not get reciprocal carry. We did get a dangerous Fix NICS. And this isn’t a merely bump-fire ban; it’s effectively a ban on semiautomatic firearms (and if you think Feinstein, Schumer et al aren’t aware of that, you weren’t paying attention): parts is parts.

I’ll try to dig up the official commenting URL tomorrow night.

Added: I’ve got 10 minutes…

No. They. Do. NOT.

  1. Let me be the first to say it.

    One-Term Trump.

    If we vote in enough democrats in November, maybe the Republican party will get a clue and run somebody else in 2020.

    1. As stupid and imperfect as Trump is, if you vote in enough Democrats they will open the borders and amnesty millions and you will never get a republican in the WH ever again.

      Put up conservative/2A Republican candidates and suppprt them with $$$$.

  2. It hurt me bad to vote for Trump in the last election. I know that Hillary would have been an even bigger nightmare. What I did not completely realize was just how much the Republicans were firmly up the back sides of the Democrats. I know now why they call them parties, because they all have to be so damn drunk that they think that we are not paying attention. Won’t they be surprised in November.

  3. And what happens when these schmucks learn about the ‘binary’ triggers (one bang on the pull, another bang on the release (see Echo trigger or binary trigger by Franklin Armory)?? ATF already ‘ruled’ the semi-auto rifle remains semi-auto and not a machine. But apparently if Trump calls my dog’s tail a machine, voila, its a machine gun and reality be damned.

    Agree that Hillary still would be worse.

    If demorats/socialist/communists win majorities in ’18, Trump will be impeached along political lines, RINOs and Dems., making him ‘1/2 term Trump’.
