This change would subsequently bring bump stocks under the purview of the same National Firearms Act (1934) and Gun Control Act of 1968 regulations that currently govern machinegun sales and possession.
The DOJ has released a draft of the announcement of the proposed definition expansion. It is similar to numerous Democrat gun control proposals that followed the Las Vegas attack inasmuch the new definition would ban numerous firearm accessories in addition to bump stocks. The title of letter conveying the DOJ’s announcement says it all: Application of the Definition of Machinegun to “Bump Fire” Stocks and Other Similar Devices.
FK – Oh, and which party is in control of the cesspool now? The republicrats you say? Oh then it’s business as usual: Stand around with your finger in the dike until the commies(demonscat party) lie their way back into power.
FK – See my response above. If you don’t understand click on the links below and educate yourself. If you do click on them anyway and share.
Compromise or cowardice?:
FK – The BATF Nazi trash have proven to be murderers in the past and regularly railroad people into prison. Why are the republicrats still funding them?
Compromising on a right one already possesses is a fool’s game. When the commie trash cry ‘compromise’ they mean in their direction, the only direction they ever willingly move in with the end goal being our total submission to them.
If you want to make the fakers squirm ask them what they plan to do when we’re told to ‘turn them in’ and a commie or ‘conservative’ SCOTUS rules it’s OK.
Hint: The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights! WE ARE!!!!!!!!!
Maybe one of their employees is beginning to get a clue:
FK – When will ‘conservatives’ and ‘libertarians’ summon the courage to stand up and say “Enough is enough!???”
If the BATF Nazis did ‘what’s right’ they’d all commit suicide or start hunting “Liberal”(commie) trash instead of real Americans.
And from the jackass’ mouth:
FK – The ‘great hypocrisy’ is the probably willful negligence of the nra to say what will/must happen if we’re ever told to ‘turn them in.’ Those who claim the Second Amendment and pretend our modern government is our friend or the amerikan communist insurgency and the globalists that fund it are just ‘misled’ ARE WORSE THAN OUR ENEMIES!
THEY ARE WAGING WAR. THEY KNOW IT. WHY DON’T YOU????
Are you passing your slavery on to your children?:
FK – It will be up to that tiny minority as it always is.
Another marker in a long slow escalation of our civil war, until they tell us to ‘turn them in.’ Time to put on the big boy pants.
Attempting reason with communists and many ‘conservatives’ is akin to slitting one’s wrists and jumping into shark infested waters.
We must make amerika free.

Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting. – Sun Tzu
As for our current situation there is only one fix for it, if it can be fixed. But western so-called men have been de-backboned and de-nutted and shrink from the idea of shedding blood when the tree of Liberty cries out for it in such a plaintive and alarming way.
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
Even though Senators have reached a compromise bill — and even though gun owners have protested this for nearly half a year — the sentencing legislation in Congress still endangers the rights of gun owners.
For beginners, the House version is still unchanged. It would increase by 50%, the maximum prison sentence for veterans and other victims of “gun control” — if they or a spouse fails to divest themselves of all guns when ordered to do so by the Veterans Administration or the ATF. (See section 6 of H.R. 3713.)
So a military veteran who is suffering from PTSD — and who has been labeled as a prohibited person — would get increased penalties for simply possessing a gun under this bill. All this would happen to decent gun owners, even while penalties for drug traffickers would be reduced.
And while the sentencing legislation will do nothing to repeal the unconstitutional 1986 ban on machine guns, penalties for those who possess such a firearm would be increased by 50% (under the same section 6 provision in H.R. 3713).
So anyone like David Olofson who fires a semi-automatic firearm which malfunctions with a three-round burst could now find themselves imprisoned for several decades, if the ATF later determines their semi-auto was actually an automatic firearm.

FK – If we had a nation of men we wouldn’t have to beg our despicable elected public servants for our rights. We’d be hanging them.
That has outraged gun control advocates, who say the public is in more – not less – danger when there are more guns are on the street.
The debate between gun advocates and gun control supporters got new traction in recent days with some sheriffs suggesting more citizens should carry guns to protect themselves and others in case of terrorist attacks or mass shootings.
“Like each of you, I’ve had enough of terrorists and others who decide they want to target U.S. citizens because they want to make a statement or get their 15 minutes of fame,” he said. “Now, more than ever before, is the time for law enforcement and citizens to be fully prepared for an attack or an active shooter scenario with the right tools to eliminate or at least disrupt the attack.”
He urged those who are licensed to carry concealed firearms to have their guns with them at all times.
“You are the first line of defense,” he said, “for you, your family and others around you.”
FK – A right applied for is a privilege.
Good for these sheriffs, for the smidgen of bravery they are showing. But we must have much more. Our domestic blood enemies who seek to disarm and fully enslave us all are far more dangerous than a handful of fundie ragheads hiding in a cave or sneaking across an open border. We must deal with them or continue to watch our country and our Liberty die.
All real American patriots who are capable should be part of the ‘first line of defense’ against our greatest enemies, our blood domestic enemies, as part of their local militia. Every squad should have one of these:
FK – If we had a free country every militia unit would have one of these per squad, or fire team. If we had a nation of men we’d make it so.
Otherwise don’t cache it on your own property. That’s the first place the BATF Nazi trash will look.
