SB 261 was just introduced and would have the effect of banning more than just bump fire stocks. This would ban rate increasing devices (bump fire stocks, binary triggers, trigger cranks) and potentially more depending on how broadly the language is interpreted. It's worse than the federal ban.
This is an inappropriate reaction to the Mandalay Bay shootings and ignores the fact that the killer could have easily obtained a much more deadly belt-fed machine gun. It suffers from many of the same flaws of the federal bill and goes further to affect other devices. It may even be a precedent bill for banning semi-automatic weapons entirely. This Survival Blog article sums of many of the concerns of bump fire stock bans from the federal bill perspective. I will not be tackling each and every concern because multiple source over the past year and a half have examined the issue from every angle.
If you think we should give in on bump fire, then you're not paying attention. You may think they're stupid, but I think they're fun and cool and I can't afford a machine gun. I still wish I had mine; you can bet if I did I wouldn't be turning it in. Now I'll just practice with my fingers. Hell, if you really hate your dog, don't want to own guns anymore, and need a couple years away from your wife, just drop a coat hanger into your AR.
The Nevada legislature is virtue signaling and forcing taxpayers to pay for a lawsuit over the uncompensated taking of personal property. You can't ban legally purchased property and make people destroy it or give it away without paying them for it. So Governor, un-esteemed Democrats, you can just go and f--- right off with your ban.
Don't forget to vote and voice your opinion in opposition.
