    I don't own a bump stock now and I've never wanted one enough to spend the money. But now that there is talk of banning them, I want two. There was also a time that didn't own an AR or want one. Now I have two.

    I am no longer willing to give an inch on gun control issues. Even if they are trying to take away things that I don't own, use or want. I am against any new restrictions or regulations. It seems the politicians only want to take. They never give.
    Has anyone tried turning the country off and then back on again?

    That would probably be about the least intrusive regulation they could impose on most of us but it won't shut them up and it won't be a solution to people killing people.

    Response from the NRA...

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) said in a statement Thursday that the device the Las Vegas shooter used to convert his semi-automatic weapons to fire automatic should be subject to additional regulations. NRA says bump stocks, devices used by Las Vegas shooter, should be regulated

    Thats exactly why we need to let them know that there will be NO legislation getting through.

    One of the reasons I have not supported the NRA in years.

    My opinion, and its only that is.....

    1) should not be any regulation on full auto or bump stock. Regulation of full auto simoly lets the more affluent own them which is unconstitutional on so many levels.

    2. 2nd ammendment intended citizens to have same weaponry as the government, donít give an inch. That includes letting the NRA know your cancelling or non renewing. Which I did some time ago.

    3. Bump stock, full auto or six shooter anyone semi conpetent could have killed 500 at that range with a large crowd as in Vegas. This guy was a lousy shot.

    I'm sure they know that they'll lose support over this. I don't agree with their call, but I suspect they've analyzed the situation and determined it's a lost cause.

    It never stops does it.

    Today bump fire stocks.

    Tomorrow collapsible stocks that make it easier to conceal.

    New week it'll be SBR's when some whacko shoots a place up with one.

    Next month it'll be Silencers that make it harder to locate.

    Month after that, it'll pistol caliber carbines built like rifles.

    And so on and so forth.

    And the gun owners that say they don't care, because it doesn't affect them, are the ones that stick their chest out and loudly proclaim to the entire world that they'll only "give up their guns when they pry their cold dead hands off of them" without even realizing that they are the useful idiots that the left must depend on to help them succeed in their piecemeal attempt to eventually ban EVERYTHING that can be used to defend oneself. One.little.piece.at a time.

    And they do it with the blessing of many gun owners because they dont have what is being discussed at the moment and they are too short sighted to figure it out.

    That is why we are doomed to fail.

    Sounds like a Wall Street term, I didn't know what they were talking about.

    Would be stupid to ban that or anything that has to do with guns. Didn't I read where one of the girls in the Manson killings used a kitchen fork? < doesn't look scary but could be!
    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    They probably see it as a strategic withdrawal. Bump stocks are going. That's pretty much a given at this point.

    Maybe so. However, when they make statements about having 5 million members trying to use it to advance their cause, I do not want to be considered one of those members.

    [church lady voice on:] HotGuns my dear brother, we are not doomed to fail because we are the generation of Boomers and Shakers! We are the 6 Million Dollar Man generation and we will not believe the lies of satan and his democratic & RINO foes!

    We will invent and make new bumper stocks and crops, new super dooper Rocket Man automatic supertactic guns! The new generation of snowflakes is illiterate as to the makings of guns and military protection as they sit in their safe spaces -

    WE RULE THE WORLD DUDE! They can't even sew on a button, write in script or change a tire do you really think that they can outsmart us? Me? I personally don't think they have a chance, lots of hot air. If they take it we will build it bigger and stronger and faster than it's ever been <six million dollar theme plays> they have no power stronger than the power real Americans were given by the 2nd amendment and they can not and will not take it away! AMEN! AND GO ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF!!!

    Got a cite for that by the bureau? I've not been able to find any such recent decision based on the tragedy in Vegas.

    I've owned one for 7 years now. Put it on, used it, learned how to run it and then took it off and haven't ever put it back on a rifle since. It sits in the safe.

    And just how are they going to ban me from bump firing when no device is necessary to do so into a crowd to begin with?

    I see one plus side to the NRA agreeing about the bump stock issue. They (certainly not just the NRA) are going to make everyone aware that this was an OBAMA ERA RULING BY THE ATF - done with his knowledge by his agency. That is going to force the liberal/socialist Dems to vote against something done on Obama's watch. I hope you can see what a quagmire this creates for them.

    The bump fire stock did nothing to help the shooter. He could have done more damage with a bolt gun. He didnt get one percent of his intended targets. He gained nothing....
