NRA Calls For Federal Review of Bump Stocks After Vegas Shooting. What It Means...
There's been plenty of leftist squabbling since the tragedy in Las Vegas. Not necessarily condolences for those who were hurt or killed though. Democrat gas bags have taken the opportunity to offend the air with their attempts at talking about guns. More specifically, gun control. Shockingly not shocking, I know. We've seen lots of talk about silencers, semi-automatic weapons, and bump stocks. All of which are words gun control activists keep sputtering on about yet find themselves unfamiliar with. Well, the National Rifle Association, or what we refer to as "people who actually know what guns are" have started talking too. They just made their first statement on the Vegas shooting. It's one you're going to want to read.
The National Rifle Association ... called Thursday for a federal review of so-called bump stocks and suggested new rules might be needed for the device apparently used by the shooter in Sunday's massacre.
"The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations," the NRA said in a written statement.
"In Las Vegas, reports indicate that certain devices were used to modify the firearms involved," the NRA said. "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 law currently bans fully-automatic rifles. Apparently the NRA doesn't want to appear to be circumventing that law with the use of bump stocks. The Obama administration didn't seem to think it did, but alas. Here we are. These things happen after mass shootings. People recalibrate, review, ask questions, voice concerns.
Word on the street is Rep. Carlos Curbelo is currently drafting up some bipartisan bill to bring an end to all things bump stockery. It's important to note that the NRA isn't calling for an outright ban on bump stocks here. Just a review to verify they comply with the law. Regardless, this is sure to spark some interesting debate between NRA members.
Meanwhile, liberal dunderheads are still working to repeal the Second Amendment. But that's nothing new...
