Magazine And Bump Stock Ban: Will the people comply?

Posted by Kris Vermillion on 5 months ago

With the blessing of both the NRA and President Trump, the ATF has suddenly discovered a new interpretation of the National Firearms Act of 1934. The latest epipheny finds that somehow the legislation from 1934 prohibits bump stock devices which were introduced to the market in 2010 and considered perfectly legal until 2018. Weird how that works.

Bump stocks have been banned because the government believes they are the only way to fire semi-automatic weapons at an accelerated rate. Apparently they've never heard of belt loops. White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, states that bump stocks fall within the definition of machine guns, which are so heavily regulated by federal firearms law that ownership might as well be explicitly banned. The rule is now in effect and owners of the bump stock firearms accessory have until March 16, 2019, to either destroy or surrender them, or become an overnight felon.

Will the American people comply?
