The nose of the tent under the camel…..

So, here we have a VERY broadly (and poorly) written ban on “bump stocks or “any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semi-automatic rifle.”….

and it is, indeed, the opening for further Gun Control.

Make no mistake, I have no need for a bump stock. I’ve seen and used one. It is merely for the most part, a way to turn expensive ammunition into smoke and noise downrange. One cannot be accurate when using a bump stock (I can’t, anyway). nor do I think any of the other toys mentioned in this bill are useful for a marksman.

Having said that, this is the opening wedge. Especially since it is a “bipartisan” bill.

Let us not forget that the ATF(e) has stated that Bump Stocks are legal. No one can prevent someone else from choosing to use something legal in an illegal manner. Nor were Bump Stocks the only way that killing large numbers of people can be accomplished.
