I’m going to answers Miguel’s question from his last post.
I was fucking amazed that after Las Vegas, Pelosi’s bill didn’t call for an outright ban on semi auto rifles.
Think about that. Really.
In a span of 16 month there were two mass shootings using AR pattern rifles, with combined over 100 dead nearly 600 injured.
The best that Pelosi could muster was a ban on bump fire stocks. Not an assault weapons ban. Just on bump fire stocks and trigger cranks.
That is an amazing victory for our side, that Pelosi knows an AWB would die instantly in Congress.
Yet some in the gun community are choosing to die on the hill of bump fire stocks.
Holy shit. We have an opportunity to buy good will for a major win for our side (see the NRA statement on bump fire and national reciprocity). Fighting that is as bone headed a thought as I’ve ever seen.
For fucks sake, take the comic of the gun rights cake and shove it.
I guarantee if we win bump fire stocks they WILL come back with an AWB to spite us.
