bump stock

~1/2 a million bump stocks in the country… how many were turned in?

13:06 – Holy.. the surrender numbers were NOT looking good, if that data is indeed accurate.  Maybe the “MoLoN LaBe” crowd that I poke fun at is actually holding onto them? If so, that implies they give zero shits about the 3-5 years worth of prison time possession of an unregistered machine gun holds (I could have sworn the max sentence was 10 years, but the guy at 13:40 says 3 to 5 *shrug*).  “It’s a bold strategy Cotton, lets see if it pays off for em.”

One thing I’ve always wondered / didn’t like, about bans which turn people into overnight criminals is the potential for you to not even know something is banned.  Relying on word of mouth to keep yourself out of prison hardly seems fair.  If I wasn’t looking at gun related trash on the internet daily, I don’t know how else I would have found out about the ban considering I don’t read anything from fake news networks, or anything Trump talks about.

Another thing I’m curious about now is how much that affected Trump’s core support base.  I’ve already seen hardcore pro-Trump people minimizing it like “LOL whatever bumpstocks are dumb anyways.” which is a fair point, but if the stroke of a pen can make bumpstocks illegal, whose to say after the next shooting or two it will be decided that semi-autos in general are too dangerous for anyone that isn’t military or police?  That’s the road this could to be headed down.  Not good.

14:12 – “What I do know is that they (bumpstocks) will never be used again for mass murder.” -Former senator Ray Lesniak    Yikes 😬 it so cringy when people actually believe this type of thing – a law written down on a piece of paper says it’s not allowed, therefore the pubic can rest easy.

Thoughts?

Bump stocks got treaded on hard recently.  Jerry checks one bumpy boi out vs his quick finger:

They definitely take some getting used to.  I don’t have one but I’ve used one and didn’t care for it… that said I’m irritated they are now NFA items and am still shocked that actually was allowed to happen.

Thoughts?
