Trump Administration Approves Bump Stock Ban, Those Who Won't Comply Are Felons!

When the working class of America stepped up and voted Donald Trump into office they believed that he would stand up for American values and the rights of the American people granted by our great country's Constitution. After the Las Vegas massacre last year, YouTube banned videos featuring bump stocks from the platform.

Soon, the Democrats began a deliberate attack on our 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms by banning bump stocks and instead of fighting against it, the NRA sided with the ban! The Second Amendment is very simple and is found in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It is literally a single sentence long:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Now that the NRA has sided with the Left and Trump has approved the ban on bump stocks, what organizations are going to fight the ban? Well, thankfully at least one group called "Gun Owners of America" has decided to file suit against the arbitrary ATF bump stock ban. It should be noted that although the National Rifle Association supported the ban, they did call on the Justice Department to provide amnesty for gun owners who have already purchased the accessory.

As can be expected, gun owners in America are not pleased with Trump's approval of the bump stock ban. Many people who voted for Trump took to Twitter to express their outrage at the President.

One user wrote, "Your little bump stock ban has cost me money and destroyed freedom. You were supposed to help repeal the N.F.A. and not expand it. You were the first and last Republican I'll ever vote for. Never again." Another Twitter user wrote, "The bump-stock ban is only the beginning. Next, it will be certain mags. Just wait."

Thankfully, it isn't just the "Gun Owners of America" who is fighting against the ban, attorneys for an owner of a "bump stock" and three other advocacy organizations filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump Administration's new rule. Erich Pratt of the Gun Owners of America organization said, "These regulations implicate Second Amendment rights, and courts should be highly suspect when an agency changes its ‘interpretation’ of a statute in order to impair the exercise of enumerated constitutional rights."

The new regulation will give bump stock owners until late March to either turn them into the government or destroy them, anyone who does not will be facing a felony. Tuesday, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker signed off on the new regulation and it is scheduled to take effect 90 days from the time it gets published in the Federal Register which could happen as soon as Friday.

In case your not clear on what a bump stock is, it is simply a device that replaces a regular stock with a stock that has some springloaded movement, almost like a device to cushion the kickback when a rifle is fired. What it allows the firearm owner to do is to hold their trigger finger in a stiff position, after the first shot is fired the recoil pushes the firearm back into your shoulder, but since the bump stock has some give, it pushes back against the recoil forcing the entire firearm forward and back into your stiff trigger finger.

This creates a perpetual cycle where one only has to keep their trigger finger stiff in order to rapidly fire a semi-automatic rifle. While it does allow for faster and easier firing of semi-automatic rifles, it does not turn it into a machine gun. This whole attack on the bump stock is costing gun owners hundreds of thousands of dollars and making a firearm accessory that they legally bought and paid taxes on illegal with no compensation.

The ATF says they expect not all owners will comply with the new rule and they are prepared to take action against those who don't. This is not going to end well. There will certainly be those who refuse to turn in their bump stocks so what is the government going to do? They are going to come to your house and take it by force and shoot you if they have to just to take a stupid device that was used ONE TIME in a mass shooting.

Make no mistake. Trump will lose support over this ban and it will certainly be a hot issue in the 2020 election.

Oh, so if you don't turn in a firearm accessory that you legally purchased you are a felon which automatically disqualifies you from the right to bear arms? This is an absolute disgrace from the Trump Administration and an outright attack on the 2nd Amendment. You should be ashamed of yourself Trump!

Who needs a bump stock anyway? The key is to know your weapon. When you hold your finger on the trigger and you lock your arm.......pull your weapon from your shoulder forward so your finger fires the bullet. The recoil from a 7.62 x 39 or a .223 is not too terrible but is enough to push the stock against your shoulder again and again and again as you pull forward into your trigger finger. Not a device you add on but true gun control! The key is to know the pressure necessary to have it respond more like an automatic.

It’s even more fun with a plinker like a .22, which by the way is the cheapest way to learn.

I'm not a fan of bump stocks, since they degrade accuracy. But any loss of freedom means Trump will be a one term wonder. One and done!

I'm actually in favor of the ban since they are used to circumvent the legalities of different classes of firearms. With that said I also think automatics should be completely legal for anyone with a basic firearms licence to own.

Since when is it right to abdicate your unalienable right to allow others to license your.......speech, press, speedy trial, vote, religion? In the same breath only those who are afraid you might shoot back, want to take away your right to”speak” as loudly as they do. Believe you me, this is where erosion of the second amendment leads to. Government of progressive socialists aren’t afraid of felons but people they want to control. Hopefully the D.C. area will slide back into the ocean during the next big one. The rising of the oceans can’t come fast enough for some.

@Jeff Allen Enough practice with a semi-auto can be just as effective as the best bump stock

You need to revise your description of how bump stocks work. They DON'T have springs (which possibly could, indeed, make them illegal devices), just a slightly loose butt-stock, attached to a small projection beside the trigger. The shooters trigger finger rests against that projection, while the other hand applies forward pressure on the rest of the rifle, usually at the fore stock. Recoil moves the rifle back a fraction of an inch (as it always does), but the trigger finger doesn't move back. The forward pressure supplied by the shooter's other arm/hand then pushes the rifle and trigger back against the shooters finger, firing another shot...repeated until forward pressure is relaxed. Each shot requires the finger to actuate the trigger, under the muscle power of the shooter...hence NOT a fully automatic or "machine gun". The ATF acknowledged this until they were pressured politically to fabricate a fake analysis of the item.

The loose butt-stock is what makes them less accurate than a true automatic, or a solid-stock semi-auto, as the rifle cannot be as firmly held and aimed.

The ban is a solution in search of a problem, as only one crime supposedly (use never actually confirmed by the FBI, as far as I've heard) committed with these devices has ever occurred, and with estimates running from half a million to as high as four million on the count as to how many are in the public's hands.

Who needs a bump stock.
Youtube has several videos on how to accomplish the same thing with just sticking your thumb in your belt loop.
