    The BATFE has published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking and request for comments in response to this stuff -
    The public comment period closes in less than a month. If you want to keep bump stocks classified as just pieces of plastic (or, I suppose, if you want them re-classified as machineguns), you need to file a comment.

    It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to rig up their own device. It's silly.

    This particular request for comments applies only to bump stocks.

    The legislation that was introduced right after the Vegas shooting included bump stocks, binary triggers, and anything else they could think to throw in. Heck, the language was so generalized that literally oiling your AR would be made illegal. That legislation went nowhere.

    Now they're trying to accomplish the same thing, in smaller, discrete steps, starting with the bump stocks and going the route of rule-making instead of law-making.

    If we're lucky Trump will step in and squash it altogether.

    ...And this is what you get when you let your know-it-all cousin speak for you.

    ETA:


    Sorry Ben. I know this is only a PSA and "Hey y'all" thing. I was out of line with my last comment. Just fed up to my hairline with the NRA complacency and backstabbing.
