NRA calls for federal review of ‘bump stock’ devices like those used in Las Vegas shooting

by Kyle Feldscher
October 6, 2017

The National Rifle Association wants the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review whether “bump stocks” comply with federal law, and the organization believes the devices should be subject to further regulations.

“Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law,” the statement reads.

“The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.”

“Bump stocks” are devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at similar rates as automatic weapons. The devices allow the recoil of a rifle to cause the gun to essentially fire itself as long as the user continues to hold down the trigger.

    The only real advantage to these devices is to sell more ammunition to people who, for whatever silly reason, want to fire as many rounds of ammo as possible in the shortest amount of time despite the fact that they cause the weapon to be less accurate and overheat, thus damaging barrels. They are a gimmick that only less than responsible people would even want.

    Sometimes, when a situation that just occurred and puts your back against the wall, it is better to give, or maybe just offer, the circling wolves at least a scrap of your food they want to take from you. I love my guns as does my whole family. We also believe in maximum civil rights for lawful citizens and respect the 2A. But REGARDLESS of EVERYTHING, if the great majority of Americans ever turn totally against gun ownership, our guns will be gone. I don’t like it but that I believe is fact. I also believe the NRA is trying to distract the circling wolves.

  • Bob says:

    Lies, lies, lies. The NRA didn’t call for the review. The Democrats forced the issue. Why give credit to the Scum-Sluts who are responsible for murdering thousand of Americans for PROFIT, PROFIT, PROFIT!! The more gun sales – the more PROFIT FOR WAYNE LA PIERRE AND GUN MANUFACTURERS!!

      You are totally nuts! The NRA doesn’t sell guns dumb ass!

      1. Bob says:

        OK nut job – I’m well aware the NRA doesn’t SELL guns.
        But tell me, numskull, what is their mission when their lobbyists walk into a Republicon Congressman’s office with a suitcase full of cash?? Oh I see, they want to donate to the Red Cross, right, skippy!!!

        1. chw2000 says:

          You really are a dumb ass. Since ’98, the NRA has contributed a little over $ 3 million to sitting Congressmen and women. Unions over $72 million and Planned Parenthood over $ 323 million. You don’t know you ass from a hole in the ground……..”numbskull”! Go back to the basement ass hole!

          1. Bob says:

            You’re the dumb A$$, lilly pad. I looked up “stupid” in the dictionary and there was your ugly puss. What do Unions have to do with Millions of Dollars of “Blood Money” from the NRA to buy off Republicon Congressmen for weapons of mass murder? But go ahead any play dumb – I’m sure its quite easy for you, skippy!!!

  • Humble Servant says:

    I am an NRA advocate and member and I too believe this type of weapon modification causes the rifle to be categorized as a fully automatic weapon. I am an avid hunter and appreciate a well built weapon but to make modifications changing the purpose of the gun should also change the category the weapon should be placed in. Hunting guns are designed for wildlife hunting and personal protection guns are designed for protecting ones self, family and friends. The automatic weapon, as a citizen, is for the pleasure of shooting but in the wrong hands this gun can be deadly and this is the reason it should be re-classified.

      I have never thought of gun owners a a bunch of rich people but with the love of semi automatic weapons they must be. Even a semi automatic can run through a hundred dollars in shells in a very few minutes. It must be nice to be rich enough to use a automatic weapon. I also like the argument that they own the weapons for defense, a shot gun is much better for defending your home, just point and shoot. I think the government should do the gun owners a favor and ban anything that make a weapon automatic and also large clips. Save people from wasting all that ammo and money. My target rifle is a single shot bolt action and if I want real fun I bring out the elephant gun.

      1. chw2000 says:

        Your target rifle is just like your head. You’re really stupid. Many shooters RELOAD their brass which provides ammo at a fraction of the cost. You really are stupid. You’re nothing but a troll that would say black is white just to start a fight. You’re a stupid ass hole!

        1. bobnstuff says:

          How long does it take to reload fifty rounds? I can go through fifty rounds in under a minute with a semi automatic.And that’s with a small clip. Even with a single shot fifty rounds doesn’t last long. Also reloading isn’t all that cheap any more. My guess is you shot off your mouth and not a rifle.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            You can now buy ammo cheaper than you can reload now by bulk! Just get 2 or 3 of you to go in and buy over a $100 worth and it’s free shipping in most places on line! You can load a clip pretty fast now with a little help on these loaders!

          2. bobnstuff says:

            Even buying in bulk shooting can get expensive. Depending on which rifle I use its between 25 and 75 cents per round. My brother reloads from time to time but I never get around to it. I end up giving him my brass. Shooting has gotten more and more of a hassle. They built a house right in the middle of the hillside I used as a range so not I have to drive to a range to shoot. Ammo has gotten expensive and for a while hard to get. All but one of my kids don’t shoot and he works two jobs and would rather fish then shoot on the few days we could go out. One of the reasons the gun industry is pushing home defense and carrying is that the next generation would rather shoot zombies on a video game the go stand in the woods where things can get messy. As I say reloading isn’t my thing, I never get around to it and I don’t save much by doing it. I also have a box full of chains for my chain saws sitting for the same reason.

          3. Rodney Steward says:

            I bet that has messed you up, I have my own shooting range, jut up to 110 YDS, but a friend up the road has a long range set up that I enjoy a lot, up to 500 YDS shooting at very small targets! Just never know bob, things are getting very bad, and this Antifa bunch hates everyone, regardless the party your for, this is the Soros bunch just like he’s had all over Europe that has caused so much trouble!

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            They just had another terrorist attack in England a little bit ago, another country that has taken guns that muslims love, gun free!!

          5. bobnstuff says:

            No guns involve in the traffic accident in England. No terrorists either. Sorry but your blood lust just isn’t going to be satisfied on this one. You also know you are safer in England or any of the EU nations from being killed then you are here. Did you hear about the mass shooting in Australia? There wasn’t one, not for years and years even though they are still a gun culture. Amazing what good laws will do.

          6. Rodney Steward says:

            Yes it was a terrorist, England stop using the word because of their muslim mayor, FACT!! And you proved my point, NO GUNS, if a CC had been there just might have saved people from getting hurt!!

          7. bobnstuff says:

            You will notice no 58 dead and 500 wounded. I guess you think if someone had a gun they could have stopped a speeding car by shooting it. In case you didn’t know this a bullet will not stop a car that is speeding at you.

          8. Rodney Steward says:

            You don’t SHOOT THE CAR, the windshield at the drivers area, and no, there wasn’t 20,000 people in one wade and gunmen on the 32nd floor shooting down on them!!

          9. bobnstuff says:

            Shooting the driver does not stop the car, it’s going to keep going till it hits something. So tell me again how many people died form the latest car attack.

          10. Rodney Steward says:

            I’ve not seen the news since this morning about England, but wasn’t it Germany where that truck was used by a terrorist that killed around 80 or more!! There been several and it’s hard to keep up with! Have you seen your buddy lately

          11. bobnstuff says:

            Once again crowd size was the factor. An automatic weapon would have been able to kill even more. Have you noticed the increase in vehicle free zones.

          12. Rodney Steward says:

            Actually the car was in a car free zone in England, on the side walk, and did you see that England said they are now considering rearming their police and certain people!!

          13. chw2000 says:

            Hey dumb ass, I reloaded for years and it was lots cheaper than buying new shells. You, once again, know nothing about the subject but inject your addle minded opinion. You’re a dumb ass hole Bob. Now go back to sleep. Ass hole!

          14. bobnstuff says:

            I guess you stopped a while back since you seem clueless on the cost of reload supplies today. Being clueless is your normal state of being.

          15. chw2000 says:

            I did stop long ago ass hole.; About 40 years ago. You where probably still screwing around with your poor knee. You’re an ass hole.

          16. bobnstuff says:

            Forty years ago, I had just opened my third bicycle shop and bought my first house. That was a good year.

      2. chw2000 says:

        You also don’t know a damn thing about shotguns. Just point and shoot. Not a shotgun with a 30 inch full choke barrel. You’re ignorant and the sad thing is you think you’re smart. You’re not Bob. You’re just another liberal ass hole.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          And why would you us a shot gun with a full choke to defend your home. You aren’t hunting geese or small game. A nice 12 gauge double barreled is just fine although a pump action give you extra shots. There’s also that clic clic sound that’s kind of cool with the pump action. Don’t take my opinion, go look in the trunk of a police car.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            The full chock pump 12 gauge was in the Nam war!

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I had a 20 gauge years ago with an adjustable chock, three shot pump action. I used it to scare small game with. I’m a far shot but for some reason I never got anything with that gun, I some time think I missed on purpose so I wouldn’t have to clean and dress what I shot. You know how most gun owners have a gun they sold and wish they hadn’t that shotgun is mine. I was stupid in selling it but the guy I sold it to still has it and has used it a lot more then I ever would have. The deal is if he ever decides to sell it he will give me a call. The one time I didn’t use ear plugs was the day I sold that gun and I couldn’t hear for about three day after it. That was also the day I graduated from high school. June of 1970.

          3. chw2000 says:

            That’s correct. The reason is the 30 inch, full choke barrel has an effective rang of 60+ yards. It’s not the preferred weapon for short distance.

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            EXACTLY Friend, and was great in the jungle!!

          5. chw2000 says:

            You’re a total idiot. I have many friends that are police officers and they would laugh in your face. You’re an idiot. Police carry what’s referred to as a “riot gun”. Those are those “kind of cool” pump guns with short barrels and cylinder chokes. You’re an ass hole Bob.

          6. bobnstuff says:

            You have friends, I find that amazing! Oh and just so you know a riot gun is open choked to permit the shot to spread quickly. Are you sure you even know what it means to have a choke on a scatter gun?

          7. chw2000 says:

            Hey dumb ass, a cylinder choke IS an open choke. You really are stupid! Also, every officer I know, and I know many, carry an AR15 in the trunk of their patrol car. Go fuck yourself ass hole.

    2. PatriotGal says:

      Humble, if bump stock is outlawed, could a person using a 3D printer make one on their own to use? If so, then why bother with outlawing this. The killer was a multimillionaire, who could buy as many 3D printers as he chose. Am I wrong?
