Donald Trump to sign bump stock ban

November 29, 2018

  Back in February Donald Trump directed Jeff Sessions to create regulations banning bump stocks and other similar devices. Now, according to this story, the new regulations are complete and Donald Trump will be signing the ban shortly. And just for the record, this new ban includes confiscation.

  Here is more:

The Trump administration plans to announce the long-anticipated federal rule officially banning bump stocks in the coming days, according to US officials familiar with the matter.

Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people. President Donald Trump vowed to outlaw the devices soon after the tragedy, and some lawmakers on Capitol Hill urged him to back a permanent legislative fix.

But opposition from lawmakers and the National Rifle Association ultimately made a regulatory change the only realistic path forward to accomplishing the President’s goal.

Under the new rule, bump stock owners would be required to destroy or surrender the devices to authorities. Members of the public will be given 90 days to turn in or otherwise discard their bump stocks, according to a source familiar with the final rule.

I hate to say it but if you ask me it looks like Donald Trump pulled a Barack Obama; he used his pen and his phone to create a law where none existed because he could not get it through the Congress. 

  However there could be an upside because if you remember correctly Donald Trump promised to repeal two older regulations for each new regulation his administration wrote. I will not be holding my breath…

    There is no upside.

    Just chalk it up as one more INFRINGEMENT the backstabbing and spineless NRA will try to turn into a positive in the next few weeks.

    Ask Yourself: What other “Accessories” will be deemed “too dangerous for the civilian to own” by the Nanny State Govt (After they BATF Put their stamp of approval on them like they did bump stocks) Night Vision Scopes? Thermal Scopes?

    Yeah it will get that stupid real soon.

      The ironic thing about this is that under Obama bump stocks were legal because they were just considered accessories, but Trump is reinterpreting the regulation to make them illegal. And he is the one people thought would be for the second amendment…

        Yeah what is the real concern is what other “sacrifices” will Trump make to appease his LIberal Congress?

        I have always had concerns about Trump and the second amendment because he was a New York liberal most of his life, and I think we are seeing some of that come through now.

    There is no upside to this folks. Trump and the NRA screwed us and gave in to liberal peer pressure.

    Just another blatant Infringement of the Second Amendment that will be quietly swept under the rug by the NRA and “Pro-Gun” groups.

    Bump stocks create inaccurate target shooting and more likely to cause gun breakdown. Not that I am in favor of them.
    Damnable pen and phone.
