    Florida inventor has his invention blocked by BATF

    A Florida man invented and patented a device that would automate the bumping procedure on a trigger. The effect would be very similar to auto fire.

    Bump firing is performed by letting a semiautomatic gun's recoil in effect pull the trigger. Initially, BATF allowed the invention which attaches to the trigger guard, because it did not meet the definition of a machine gun. Then, they renegged their decision effectively bankrupting the inventor.

    Here's a youtube link to how well the invention works on a 22 rifle.

    Yep. Just think of the crimes one could commit with an Akins accelerator. The name sounds like a diet pill. I'm waiting for the day when guns are found to be a significant factor in global warming.
