Bumping off… REALITY

I had occasion to review the status of the coming bump-fire stock rule today.

The basic lie about how bump-fire stocks operate is still there, naturally.

This rule is intended to clarify that the statutory definition of machinegun includes certain devices (i.e., bump-stock-type devices) that, when affixed to a firearm, allow that firearm to fire automatically with a single function of the trigger, such that they are subject to regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the Gun Control Act (GCA).

But the real fun part is down in “Anticipated Costs and Benefits.”

It is anticipated that the rule will cost $129,222,483 million in the first year (the year with the highest costs).

“$129,222,483 million”

$129,222,483… MILLION.

$129,222,483,000,000

ONE HUNDRED-TWENTY-NINE TRILLION, TWO HUNDRED-TWENTY-TWO BILLION, FOUR HUNDRED-EIGHTY-THREE MILLION EFFING DOLLARS.

Come “12/00/2018” these idiots are going to break the bank.

Perhaps the feds should look into the “anticipated costs” of hiring a proofreader.
