The Bump Stock Deception

If the infringers get something we should too.
Using tragedy to manipulate infringement is perverse.
Left wingers seek to ban a piece of plastic out of pure frustration.

An open letter to Congress:

Regarding so-called "bump-fire" stocks or "slide-fire stocks" you are currently considering regulating --

1. You have no apparent legitimate delegated authority to regulate these essentially inert plastic/composite firearm accessories.

2. Because a firearm can be fired in "bump-fire" style without these accessories, regulating them is a specious and politically motivated attempt to placate certain elements of the public and political world who do not understand the issue.

3. Pretending to actually "do something," with a move like this, when you are actually doing nothing productive, is a humiliating embarrassment.

4. Regulations here will a) have no effect on psychotic behavior which is the real problem society faces, and b) deliberately masks the true nature of that problem.

5. Your agency should not play into this false narrative or deceptive practice.

6. Arguing that you can't ban other firearms, so you might as well ban these "crumbs" is reprehensible, and should be grounds for your removal from office for infringement.

These guys get to have all the machine guns they want. The whole purpose
of the Second Amendment is BALANCE OF POWER. Has America
lost sight of this crucial principle? We lost this balance in 1986.

A person did this. There are already many laws violated, ENFORCE THEM. The MEDIA is elevating this person to HERO STATUS. They are partly to blame for it.
