So Dina Titus sponsored a bill to ban bumpfire stocks and regulate them like machine guns under the National Firearms Act. I haven't bothered to read the text but either they will be effectively banned or people will have to register them and maybe pay a $200 tax. She is proposing this rehash of her 2017 bill written in the wake of the 2017 Mandalay Bay, I mean Route 91 Harvest Festival, or October 1 Shooting (whatever PC name we're calling it now) because of court rulings that are chipping away at the ATF's arbitrary reclassification of bumpfire stocks as machine guns.
Donald Trump, instead of having a spine, wanted to make a "deal" and with the NRAs help went for the low hanging fruit of getting the ATF to effectively ban bumpfire stocks. To do this, the ATF had to abuse the definition of machine gun and their whole regulatory authority like an Afghan man does to a young boy's butthole. A military court and the 6th District Court of Appeals found that bumpfire stocks are not machine guns. No logical person would, only hoplopaths and politically motivated retards.
Enter Dina Titus. So to remain politically relevant and get her name out there to appear she actually gives a shit about the retards, welfare queens, communists, illegals, and union employees that vote for her, she waved the bloody shirt of 10/01/2017. "We have to ban bump fire stocks because the courts might correctly interpret the law," she didn't say.
This is asinine on so many levels. First, when the ATF "banned" them there was not some mass turn in of the tens to hundreds of thousands of them out there. Most of them are probably still out there hiding under beds, in closets, and buried in the yard. Making them more illegal through the bill process instead of bureaucratic witchcraft won't cause thousands of gun owners to turn them in. Given the fake election, the COVID bullshit, and the fact that Democrats are politely saying they really do want to subjugate half the country, no one with any balls is turning shit in.
Second, machine guns are legal and should be more legal (like new manufacture and no NFA BS). 3D printing has made bumpfire stocks kinda redundant. You can print a lightning link and have a full-auto AR-15 that no one can stop. Heck, all you need is a coat hanger.
Third, who's to say that the court system doesn't unfuck itself and rules that the National Firearms Act is unconstitutional? Or that in short order, the way things are going, citizens stop caring?
So this bill is going nowhere and if it does, who cares? Bumpfire stock owners didn't seem to care before. And frankly, if the Democrats get the votes to pass this, they will be passing much worse and then they will have much more to worry about than this.
In the end, this is a publicity stunt that idiots will fall for. Democracy simply doesn't work.
