12 bump fire stocks were found at the scene of the Las Vegas shooting. Bump fire enabled Stephen Paddock to fire his 14 AR-15 rifles and eight AR-10 rifles at a rate similar to a full automatic weapon. Because of bump fire stocks, Paddock sprayed approximately 500 people with gunfire. With bump fire stocks, semi-automatic rifles can mimic the firing rate of fully automatic rifles: 400-800 rounds per minute. And it's not just rifles, but bump fire can also be used on pistols. The last thing we need is a fully automatic handgun. At the moment, bump fire stocks are legal in 45 states. That needs to change.
If you are a terrorist, you would go to amazon right now and buy a bump sock for your gun that fires 950 JBJ rounds, so that you can wreck havoc among every city in the US. THis would allow you to fire 60 950JBJ rounds per second, and JBJ rounds are bigger than my fist
Low fire-rate guns are somewhat acceptable, (personally I believe people have the rights to guns) but I do not believe that we should be improving these guns to the point that they are able to harm massive amounts of people. Guns are only necessary in self defense and hunting, neither need to have fast firerates.
It's not a gun so does not fall under the 2nd amendment.
If you really want to increase your fire speed with a semi-automatic, just train yourself to pull the trigger faster.
If you live in a state that has special permits, you could just fill out the forms and get a full auto. If not, you could attempt to get a collectors permit. Thing is, these are only available under limited conditions. Another option is to get the ban on full auto guns lifted but I doubt you will have much luck. Odds are, if you a person that really wants them, your the same type of person that shouldn't be around guns in the first place.
Why should we give up the only substitute we have for fully automatic weapons after you forced us to give that up in the 80's after the San Ysidro shooting where semi-automatic guns were used. And now they are making proposals to ban bump-stocks only after the Parkland Shooting where semi-automatic weapons were used? You had your chance after Las Vegas Trump, but we don't need you to start making proposals now. I am sad that the state I grew up in banned them less than a week ago in Washington. Good thing I live in Alaska, though.
A bump stock would not have stopped the massacre that occurred at Vegas or any other mass shooting. All the ban on a bump stock would do is provide a gateway to more gun banning agenda's. The facts are, that if you really want a bump stock that badly you can just make one and why not apply the same logic to scopes? Because apparently anything that increases a weapons effectiveness is considered not constitutional and is subject to banning. This is a pointless argument and just flat out goes against the second amendment and leads to greater gun control when there are many other factors that lead to gun violence and many other solutions to end it.
Because guns are fun and all deserve them. We need guns to protect ourselves. Life is great so shoot more guns with bump stocks. I l o v e g u n s ! They are the bestest thing ever. We need more guns to protect us from these terrorist.
I think that they should be legal, Because banning them won't stop shootings. Semi automatic weapon can be as deadly as automatic if used properly, So ban doesn't improve safety at all. Government should focus on improving police and enforcing laws we already have. Also bump stocks are really fun to shoot.
The issue with anything concerning Gun Rights is always red meat for Liberals. The reason is obvious since Liberals want to run every aspect of our lives and Firearms are the final word.
Bump Stocks should not be banned because their are unobtrusive, Simpler alternatives that would work far more efficiently.
I could see the law abiding gun owners having fun, Burning up ammunition, Getting bored and moving on. I could also see the bad guys stealing full up military weapons or just removing it from the body of the Soldier or Police Officer.
Now, How easy would be to make a Bump Ring? Oh my goodness! Regulate Suppressors? Really? See Silent Ammunition in the book Ammunition by Ian V. Hogg. . . . Or pay attention in your Physics and Chemistry classes. I think these antigun nuts need a lesson in History, Physics and Chemistry. There is so much in the literature and text books that would render this discussion null and void. Prefired rounds out of a shotgun shell, Suppressed ammunition, Cast acrylic sabot that disintegrates leaving the barrel leaving no data and no modification to the firearm and then make a Bump Ring that also requires no modification to the firearm. You pass a pointless law that harasses good law abiding Citizens. You say that You don't need. It isn't the Bill of Needs. Look up how many of all these shooters were going or coming off SSRI meds. Look up when these shootings started.
This isn't about Gun Control, It is about Control.
We all know that many places around the world have banned firearms, Or made them nearly impossible to obtain legally. However, On the 11th of May 2018, Seven people - a whole family - was found shot dead by police near Perth, Australia. Australia banned citizen gun ownership in 1996. According to thesun. Co. Uk, There were 24 shootings in the UK in 2018. The UK banned all guns below a. 22 calibre in 1997 and made those impossible to obtain by anyone non-citizen, Or with any kind of criminal record and only available for those engaged in competitive sport, Registered with a shooting club and the rest of the works. Bear in mind that the entirety of the UK is about as big as Idaho. According to Idahostatesman. Com There were 10 shootings in Idaho in the same year.
Bump stocks will not stop mass shootings in any way. You can still commit mass shooting with a semi automiatic weapon. And key word there I said semi automatic weapon that involves pistols it’s called reloading when u reload a gun u can still inflict damage to comit a mass shooting
Although a bump stock allows the user to fire faster, It does not increase accuracy. If Paddock had used a semi auto with no bump stock, He would have injured fewer but killed more. Also, An ar10 is better than an ar 15. With an ar10, He could have sniped individuals from 500 yards away.
Bump stocks are irrelevant. Bump stocks diminish accuracy. Things could have bern much wirse with accurate fire. Meds have been a main contributor in all these incidents which started in the 1990s or so. . The issue in every such shooting, Which started in 1990 or so has been SSRIs, Meds and mental health. Far more deaths are caused by drunk drivers. The issue is not about guns, It is about control.
Imagine that the meanest, Most dangerous machine gun in the world is in the corner of the room. Fully loaded and able to be shot. If nobody touches this gun then that gun will never go off. The idea of banning an inanimate object just because people use it for a horrid cause is preposterous. The real issue is the person behind the firearm, Not the gun itself.
