If President Trump’s ban on bump stocks goes through, he will have enacted more gun control in his first year and a half than Obama did in eight years in office.

GOOD for President Trump! Arm the teachers. And also:
Bumpfire stocks are OBVIOUSLY not machine guns. BUT:

You say the anti-gunners on the march? LOL!

Give them a taste of THIS: Videos: How to Bumpfire Effectively without a Bumpfire Stock! Turn UP your sound!

No need for a Bumpfire stock. Amazingly fun! Accuracy is naturally compromised, though. Short handgun cartridges have the highest cyclic rate, since less bolt travel is needed.

Bumpfiring is 100% legal, and safe in a properly maintained modern sporting rifle. Some gun ranges do not like it, though, because they feel you don’t have adequate control of the firearm. I am sure that could well be the case of you bumpfired a cartridge anywhere from 7.62 NATO (.308 Winchester) on up.

Banning bump stocks is not “gun control” — that is the whole point.

He has to do “something” in view of the vicious attacks by Democrats.

He is doing exactly “something”, but specifically NOT hurting gun rights.

Imagine, “allowing” a teacher to take advanced training, submission to background and fingerprint checks; just so they can have equal footing to their non-law abiding students.

Simply do away with “Gun Free Zones”

Make the crazies fear.

Wake up people . We already have a nics background check. No more period. No more government permission to exercise a constitutional right. Line in the sand right here right now. More gun control should result in scorched earth for the GOP. We should be rolling back gun control at a feverish pace but now we are going to pile on more when we control every branch of government? When would we ever reverse any gun control ?

It is specifically NOT solving any part of this problem, and it is specifically NOT going to prevent any future shooting from occurring, so what something are we going to do after the next one? And the one after that?

If teachers are uncomfortable carrying guns, they should be forced to carry something like mace or a taser which will give them a prayer for a split second ambush to disable a gunman entering a classroom.

.
Until Congress outlaws “Gun free zones” and psychotropic drugs, the shootings will continue.

Those two elements are the proximate enablers of all mass killings.

.
Having a concealed carry permit should be a requirement for getting a teaching credential.

I hope they choose the stable teachers. Not the ones who are having sex with their underage students.

Bump stocks were first invented under Bush II (the Akins Accelerator) and were briefly legal then. The ATF quickly realized exactly what it was that a junior examiner had approved and banned it as (surprise) a machine gun.

It was only under Obama that that ban was reversed by someone calling it ‘an assistive device for the physically disabled.’ It was the Obama BATF that was too stupid to realize what it was.

Gun Plan? Here:
  1. End Gun Free Zones. These are killing fields, especially when no police are around or are too coward to respond.
  2. Establish National Reciprocity. Our 2nd amendment rights are as citizens of US and should not vary by city, county, or state line.
  3. Allow teachers, faculty, AND parents to carry concealed at school. Police cannot be depended upon, whether cowards or too long to respond.
  4. Enforce gun laws, such as background check lies--drug use, etc. Start throwing people in jail. Why bother enhancing when they don't follow what is already the law?

Sorry, neither I nor any of the CPL (concealed pistol license) holders I know required federal funding to obtain our CPLs. We paid $160.00, about 100 rounds of ammunition, and two days for our licenses.

In other words, I don't believe the fed.gov needs to get into paying for folks’ licenses. I imagine that if the school boards asked, they would find plenty of already licensed teachers who would love to be able to carry at school. Federal funding just screams misappropriation.

Sometimes, we don't need the government and their offer of help. ;)

No. He is hurting gun rights because he is playing into the meme that ar-15’s are only good for killing people. Bump fire stocks have been used in exactly one mass murder, banning then we’ll mean nothing as far as safety goes. He is giving support to those who want to disarm the people. What will we lose the next time a deranged democrat decides to kill a bunch of innocent people?

I would agree with you about the CCL but we are discussing an advanced course in handling a shooter in a school. There are some situations that applicants should be trained for and its even possible that the training will show some people who are not ready to accept this responsibility.

If you are going to require extra training, then the participants deserve to be paid for same.
