The call to ban bump stocks has begun.
Feinstein, Everytown, you know, the usual suspects, are calling to ban bump stocks after the Associated Press reported that they were recovered in the hotel room of the shooter allegedly responsible for killing at least 50 people and wounding hundreds of others in Sunday night’s attack in Las Vegas.
Sen. Feinstein, who has been caterwauling about bump stocks since she first learned of them, said in a statement Tuesday that it’s time to prohibit the popular accessory that gives shooters the freedom to safely enjoy controlled rapid fire without the hassle of NFA waiting periods, tax stamps, and paperwork.
“A ban on bump fire stocks was included in my 2013 assault weapons bill, and I’m looking at how best to proceed with legislation to finally close this loophole,” said the California Democrat. “This is the least we should do in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. It should be our highest priority.”
In sticking with the “loophole” theme, Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, also called for a ban on bump stocks.
“Hardware that turns legal guns into automatic weapons should be prohibited,” said Watts on Twitter. “Automatic weapons are highly regulated; this evades federal law.”
As Paul reflected in a recent review of the next generation SSAR-15 MOD, “My article actually sold more stocks in one day, and picked up more dealers, than all of the other press that SlideFire had received prior to that, combined.”
It’s been fun to watch Slide Fire grow into the company that it is today. They’re good people, hardworking and law-abiding. It’s a shame that they are now the target of a mob that wants to destroy their livelihood because of the actions of a crazed madman.
BREAKING NEWS: NRA Supports Ban on Bump
One can bet that the anti-gunners in Congress will push for a hearing on gun control ASAP. They know their best chance of getting anything through is when emotions are at a high.
It appears that President Trump knows the debate is coming. He told a reporter Tuesday, “We will be talking about gun laws as time goes by.”
Let’s just hope enough time passes for tempers to cool and reason to prevail. Otherwise, it could be the beginning of the end for bump stocks.
