    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has requested comments concerning "bump fire stocks".

    Gun Owners of America URGENTLY needs you to speak up by the January 25th deadline set by the ATF and help us incinerate this proposal before it even hits the House floor.

    https://www.federalregister.gov/doc...stocks-and-other-similar-devices#open-comment

    The proposal to ban bump stocks is nothing but a political game orchestrated by politicians like Nancy Pelosi. Most gun owners don’t even own bump stocks, but Pelosi knows that the second Republicans give her an inch, she’ll take a yard and stab them in the back.
    This is a dangerous slippery slope that we absolutely cannot cross. This is exactly why Gun Owners of America has officially taken a no-compromise stance.
    Our Constitution is clear. We have a right to bear arms. Period. Our Founding Fathers were wise enough to know that if we start sacrificing our God-given freedoms for a false sense of security from a nanny-state government, we’ll be left with neither liberty nor security.
    Every gun owner needs to realize that if the ATF can unilaterally ban bump stocks,THEY CAN BAN ANYTHING THEY WANT.
    In Liberty,

    As crazy as Nancy Pelosi is, if she can get away with this she can get away with anything.

    But the truth is she's on the outs here. She's become so much of an embarrassment that the party can't really even keep her on as a yes man.

    I sure didn't like it when I read this part:

    "You are filing a document into an official docket. Any personal information included in your comment text and/or uploaded attachment(s) may be publicly viewable on the web.

    It ain't in California, buddy.

    Things here are more tenuous.

    Submitted the following 2-fer... ;) Short and sweet, yet complete.

    "I do NOT agree that a "bump fire" stock or similar devices should be classified or defined as a "machinegun".

    I also believe that firearm noise suppressors should be removed from the same classification as a machine gun."

    PS: I don't know if my comment was "accepted" as I keep getting an error message...

    UPDATE: This LINK worked better for me but was a little slow, so be patient. You can also select "anonymous" for your name...

    Here is what I wrote:

    26 U.S. Code § 5845 - Definitions
    "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.

    Entire video is pretty good and with behind the scenes commentary. Especially pay attention to 10:55 to 12:30

    36:00 to 40:00

    Thanks for the link John, I put my opinion in. I thought about just copying your response verbatim. Instead phrased it in layman's terms.
