"President Trumps Stealth Bump Stock Ban Is Illegal And Ignorant"

"Perhaps in search of mythical bipartisanship points, Trump ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) to craft a new administrative rule banning the devices."

"when faced with an opportunity for political expediency in the wake of the Vegas shooting, President Trump basically demanded the DOJ pretend as if bump stocks—a shaped piece of plastic—somehow now fall within the legal definition of “machine gun.”

1. Bump Stocks.....

......are a distraction.

Banning the use of smartphones would save exponentially more American lives.

7. High-profile mass shootings always lead to ignorant action by the government at some level.

It doesn't ever seem to fail to happen.

8. I am a staunch supporter of the bill of rights, including the second amendment

And I am very surprised there aren't more on this site that care about this.

Where are all my fellow CCW permit holders?

9. It's stupid...

...for sure but, I have to admit, I didn't even know what a bump stock was until a year or so ago. This is one of those "we must do something" measures that really does nothing but provide a hollow and pointless victory lap for some.
