This is precisely why bans on everything from automatic weapons to bump stocks is a waste of time. Reminds me of the "shoestring machine gun" some folks came up with when the ridiculous GCA was first created in 1986.

Skip ahead to 1:40 if you just want to see the rubber-band assist in action.

(give up the idea of banning any class of firearm, arbitrary feature or cheap household item)

I think they were going to start ridding us of rubberbands right after they finish with straws.

Guns don't kill people, not like bullets do.

Let em have guns but not bullets.

Regular rubber bands are perfectly legal.

Dip one in black ink and they instantly become illegal, the feared "Assault Rubber Bands". (ARB's)

Why can't you just be happy with regular rubber bands? Why does anyone need a military styled Assault Rubber Band???

Abortion kills more people than guns do.

That video is so freakin' cool.

No, Wait! SHAME on you for posting this thread!!

Now all the kids will be begging Mom to take them to Wal-Mart to buy jumbo bags of rubber bands in anticipation of a complete ban on all things "stretchy", and the supply will just dry right up.

First, a run on rubber bands, then it''ll be bungee cords, textile elastic, inner tubes, tires, etc....

Then it's surgical tubing, because any smart kid knows that it can be used exactly the same way.

No more football, basketball, or volleyball either, cause they'll stop making those rubber air bladders because kids will be cutting them up and using them when the rubber band supply dries up.

I guess soccer balls, as well, even though soccer's not a real sport.

No more condoms, or rubber sex dolls, either.

Dear God! OH the HUMANITY!!!!!

Nooooooooooo.......

"We must BAN assault rubber-bands"

I'm very skeptical. This seems a real stretch.

Then I guess that our underwear will come after all the other elastic stuff...
Which is probably good , nobody wants swamp ass while they are just out target shooting.

Great logic.



Such a well thought out post... one small question why does it make it a waste of time?

Do you think all drugs should be legal? Do you think there should be laws at all? Why restrict anything? Everyone's allowed nukes for self-defence yay!

What a vision! I can see you holding your man-bun up in the air as you utter this, like Moses did the rifle. That would be enough to make the ATF retreat! Well, maybe not the San Francisco office.

This is my way of thinking with most of the bans on specific items that have been attempted to date. It always seems that prohibition spawns a demand/criminal element, which leads to additional "crack downs" that effectively deprive all citizens of a specific right. Seems a bit too much like Hegelian dialectic if you ask me

Heard a saying once that said "everyone has to wear diapers because one person soiled them self"
