In case you missed it, our supposedly pro-gun president ordered every American to hand over their bump stocks or face jail time. A move which is sure to piss off pretty much every Second Amendment purist in the U-S-of-A. Well, the parody site Babylon Bee put their spin on the whole thing and, as usual, it was spot on.
See for yourself:
In a rash of tragedies all across the United States, every single bump stock in the nation was tragically lost in various boating accidents earlier this week.
Coincidentally, the bump stocks have just been banned by the Trump administration. Since all the bump stocks have been destroyed, it’s now impossible for the ATF to confiscate them or fine people who did not destroy them.
“Well, I guess our job is done,” an ATF representative said. “We were gonna have to make sure people complied with this unilateral executive order, but now I guess we can just harrass gun owners for other stuff. Worked out pretty nicely for all of us, I think.”
It’s not clear why gun owners were taking their bump stocks boating.
Excuse me for a moment.
Part of me thinks this faux article is hilarious. The other part dreads the very thought of us having this conversation. I never would have expected our boomstick freedoms to be in danger of going bye-bye under a Republican president.
Apart from the chuckle-inducing funnies, The Babylon Bee is making a fantastic point. This new rule is pretty much unenforceable. Seeing as there’s no database of bump stock owners or any way to prove the owners are still in possession of the devices, this sucktastic, unconstitutional rule is useless.
Something tells me reality won’t be far from this article. Anyone can tell government bureaucrats they “misplaced” their bump stock somewhere in the Atlantic. There’s not really anything Uncle Sam can say to prove otherwise. So, what we have here is just another overly-intrusive waste of time, courtesy of the government.
Speaking of gun control:
