Banning bump stocks.

I don't like "banning" anything.

It just sits wrong with me.

I don't like it, personally.



Could save a life down the road, who knows? Still doesn't sit well? Well there's 0 negative to banning this.


So you're good with enforcing something if it saves just one life?


You're damn right. Especially when there's 0 negative to enforcing it.

So you're against illegal aliens and sanctuary cities and sanctuary states. Since illegals have killed.

It stands to reason, right?

No, that doesnt stand to reason. This is about one thing and one thing only. Do not combine other situations into it to try and bait me.

So I should stop expecting consistency.



Got it!

Your baits do not work here. Banning bump stocks has nothing to do with illegals killing. That is no consistency. That is an entirely different subject in its own. Nani?

All of you do realize, other Politicians after the Vegas shooting said the same thing. Back in October that's what they wanted. Now trump wants to do it. Oh OK not 4 months ago let's do it now. The dumb-ass is always A-day late and a dollar short.

The Department of Justice has been reviewing it since then and they had not come up with comprehensive plan yet. You might want to read before simply posting.

I'd venture to say that NRA would be against getting rid of bump stocks. Just a guess though. Seems more like hes trying to make the people calling for action happy. Rather than the NRA.


Actually, the NRA supports regulating bump stocks.


In Las Vegas, reports indicate that certain devices were used to modify the firearms involved. Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law. The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.

well if this is actually true then we can once again see whether gun controls are actually as effective as so many seem to think, well i doubt it will fix a damn thing though but hey what do i know.

Nope.

...and after, God forbid, the next incident of this sort, they'll scream for more controls, rather than actually addressing the over riding issue.

But then, deep down, we all know that nothing is going to get done, because it's easier to blame, than to fix.

He isn't he just shows people what one is. He offers no personal view and has made the video to educate.
Helped me understand what they are.

I'm not commenting on the video quality, just his appearance.

I wonder if he didn't look like that if people would see the video information the same light.

Wondering about human nature and perception:

Who would people believe and trust in this case
Would it enforce the perception of good or bad

- The man in the video

- A man in a plaid shirt

- a woman in a dress

- a man in a suit
