Trump announces he will not run for a second term

Bump-fire Banned
Let me drop this here before the sun sets.

Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a mandated comment period. We will BAN all devices that turn legal weapons into illegal machine guns.

In case you’ve forgotten how stupid (and contrary to physical reality) this is.

And yes; The Zelman Partisans opposes this. Accepting this is in no way a compromise. We did not get reciprocal carry. We did get a dangerous Fix NICS. And this isn’t a merely bump-fire ban; it’s effectively a ban on semiautomatic firearms (and if you think Feinstein, Schumer et al aren’t aware of that, you weren’t paying attention): parts is parts.

As in: all parts of a machinegun are a machinegun, under federal law and rules.

How stupid is this?

This stupid:

Allowing physics

Can someone leak this moron’s college transcripts. He clearly failed physics.

Sessions says Justice Dept. inching closer to banning bump stocks
“We believe in that, and we have had to deal with previous ATF legal opinions, but our top people in the Department of Justice have believed for some time that we can through regulatory process not allow the bump stock to convert a weapon from a semiautomatic to a fully automatic.”

Since it’s physically impossible for a bump-fire stock to convert a semiautomatic rifle into a fully automatic rifle, not allowing it should be a snap.
