Bleh, and just as i posted i saw a blurb "AFT vows to work with congress .. " 

Going to end up banning it all, via law, and then decades of suits to try to get to SCOTUS to strike them down, if they have not been packed or subverted ( someone said 2 justices are going to be retiring during the next presidential term.  this could be the end of everything ).

I think today's attempt at explicit banning bump stocks by congress failed.  ( which is basically what SCOTUS said to do..  )

And while it doesn't matter now to do too much research since the bill has to be redone/introduced as regular process and will change, i think they were trying to add ALL semi auto weapons to the NFA.    "we didn't take your rights, as you can have them, but you gotta pay and register"

Hmm so something so clear as the bump stock rule being invalid, took nearly 8 years just to get to court to be nullified. Will take decades for the next one after congress passes an actual law banning them, IF it ever gets to SCOTUS...  Look how long the unconstitutional NFA has stood.. 

I wonder how many people went to jail for having one, and sat there waiting for it to be overturned.  

 

Our founders would be ashamed of us.

SCOTUS punched freedom in the nose today.

Looks like the bumpstock ban has been overturned by scotus ( i still
think they are stupid, but hey, if you want one, great, go get one )


I think what is meaningful about this one is I read it in the local headlines here, in a country which never reports this sort of stuff.

It wont last long. Now that SCOTUS told congress "well, just make a law" its just a matter of time.   It also means states that have banned them explicitly, they stand.  

 

They could have said "banning bump stocks is unconstitutional" but they didn't.  And I know why they did what they did ( staying in their lane and sticking with a ruling on the case in front of them, to avoid issues down the road ) but unfortunately it set things up for a lot of future restrictions.  "Fine, we will get congress to do it"

 

Same issue with a lot of other executive branch over-reach. Just says "go get it in law, then you are good". Sure, may get struck down eventually on real grounds, but most laws 'stick' until then.. decades..

Bump stocks are a bad idea, just legalize full auto.  No one should be prohibited from carrying any weapon they want.  If I want a turret on the back of my truck that can wipe out an entire army of invaders in under a minute, I am guaranteed that by the Constitution.  Anyone who is against that IS THE ARMY OF INVADERS and deserves to be shot hundreds of times.

I agree, however the ones that will shoot and kill you, and your dog, do not believe that. 

Something i told a kid once "ya, the sign says you have the right of way, but it wont matter if you get killed by a car for not looking first to see if they slow down" " so look first anyway"

I am guaranteed that by the Constitution.

May not make it thru, and it will be struck down, eventually... years?  But i guess there is now a push to get the ATF reclassify Glocks as machine guns since its 'too easy to convert'.

If they do this and dont get slapped down immediately, expect AR-15's next..

Trump shooting: 

 

"Law enforcement sources told CBS News the suspect was shooting with AR-style rifle from 200-300 feet away."

 

Commence expanded attack on rifles. The left  just loves these events.
