NRA: Bump Stocks Should Face 'Additional Regulation'

The National Rifle Association said Thursday that "bump stock" devices used to fully automate rifles "should be subject to additional regulation" in light of the Las Vegas massacre that killed 58 people and injured 489 others.

"In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented," the NRA said in statement.

The National Rifle Association said Thursday that "bump stock" devices used to fully automate rifles "should be subject to additional regulation" in light of the Las Vegas massacre that killed 58 people and injured 489 others.

"In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented," the NRA said in statement.

"Unfortunately, the first response from some politicians has been to call for more gun control," the association added.

"Banning guns from law-abiding Americans based on the criminal act of a madman will do nothing to prevent future attacks.

"This is a fact that has been proven time and again in countries across the world.

"The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.

"In an increasingly dangerous world, the NRA remains focused on our mission: strengthening Americans' Second Amendment freedom to defend themselves, their families and their communities.

"To that end, on behalf of our five million members across the country, we urge Congress to pass National Right-to-Carry reciprocity, which will allow law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families from acts of violence," the NRA said.

What about rubber bands? They can be used to make a bump fire type of operation

This arsecovering just feeds into the narrative that guns themselves are to blame. Not the sickness in society and publicity hungry murderers looking to immortalize themselves.

GOA has come out and rejected banning bump stocks. It does seem inevitable however. If Pablo Ryan is smart he will attach 50 state reciprocity to the bill or the 20 week abortion ban. Dems must compromise on something. We always give everything away for nothing

Why?
Next time a terrorist or nutcase will use some other trick and we will bemoan how such a thing could have been legal.
Eventually everything will be forbidden, which is exactly the goal of Commies, Fascists and Terrorists alike.

I would not want a bumpfire stock even if it was free. However, especially in politics, I object to trading something for nothing. We want silencers and CCW reciprocity. The totalitarian thugs want to ban something so they can claim a win. Let’s trade. Remove the restriction on suppressors and mandate reciprocity, and I’m okay with the useless but symbolic ban on these stocks. But don’t trade it away for nothing, and don’t add to the narrative that guns are the problem.

Hardly.

These should have never been openly purchasable in the first place, and are just an attempt to end run around the existing laws regarding automatic weapons. lawmakers and ATF failed royally on this one.

The NRA is wrong. Rather, the National Firearms Act, which unconstitutionally infringes our right to keep and bear arms, must be repealed.

Concur. Fair trade. I’m sick of traveling and constantly having to consider the patchwork of CCW state permits. Also, I need a silencer so my guns will be as quiet as the ones Hollywood always shows in movies.

They support more common sense gun control. So they serve no purpose.

Any additional gun regulation working through Congress will be loaded down with and used as a vehicle for further restrictions above and beyond so-called bump stocks.

just an attempt to end run around the existing laws regarding automatic weapons.

The National Firearms Act is a gross violation of the Second Amendment. The proper response is to repeal the current idiotic and unconstitutional registration of legitimate automatic weapons, and the idiotic and unconstitutional ban on ownership of automatic weapons manufactured after 1986,
