Thanks, NRA, hope you're glad that you created a monster to fight to stay relevant.

One could easily argue that high-capacity magazines "increase the rate of fire".

That says a lot and yet nothing at all.........

Based off that wording this could get messy.

 It says nothing, and in doing so takes everything.

I'm sure we all would. But then there's that whole "real world" thing we live in. Anyone who doesn't believe that this could pass, that "the Republicans will prevent this sort of thing" those are the folks not living in the real world.

Events like this (Vegas then the resulting legislation) are how Australia and the UK got their total bans.

Like I have been saying, we don't have conservative Republicans, we have 80's Democrats.

There is already mumblings that this might be the straw.

They are all worthless and needed to go!

This Curbelo that is introducing this bill with some Massachusetts liberal is a crafty one.  They’re cooking it up “Noah’s Ark style” (meaning Members can only sign on as a co-sponsor with a Member from the other party).  They are exploiting the Christian angle to guilt conservatives into signing up.

We control the house, the senate and the presidency yet we can't get anything done in Washington. Our representatives no longer represent the people that elected them. Heck, I have been trying to contact my representative for over three years now but he is never in his office. He is perpetually at his "home office" and refuses to return or take calls.

Hold on there sparkles. :) There's always some dumbass throwing up a gun control bill. And, there's always some Repub that will vote for it. Doesn't mean it's gonna be law. These slimy bastards ain't gonna vote for anything that could end their spree of raping the American public. That means they gotta have us rednecks. Ask Bob "Pipsqueak" Corker.

A very rhetorical question could then be asked, "How is one supposed to represent their constituents if they consider themselves too good/busy for their constituents?".

I'm optimistic that the bill itself will not go anywhere, although I'm realistic to know that it could go somewhere.

Welp, Paul Ryan says no to any gun control legislation..wants the atf to regulate bump stocks..

How could they be regulated any differently, assuming they follow, you know, the actual NFA law, which is why ATF found them to be legit in the first place?


"The term “machinegun” means any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger."  -- 26 U.S. Code § 5845 - Definitions

I have no idea OS....ATM, I'm glad that Ryan seems to realize that the whole gun control legislation thing while they are in control would cause many problems for them come 2018...Putting up as many roadblocks as possible for the dems/repub lites could allow time for the atf to maybe revise the wording to include bump stocks..

 

Just spit balling at this point...

Whatever regulatory wackiness the BATFE may be guilty of through the years, they can't revise the wording of an enacted federal law.

Here's a thought. How about they do their job and represent us. No more politics. Just enforce current laws according to the Constitution. 

Yeah, I must be dreaming.
