Who has 73,000 Bump-stocks...???

#1 Post by AJMD429 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 10:30 pm

Well, evidently these guys used to.... :shock:

I never would have wanted one, because they seemed to deter accurate aimed fire, and be a potential safety hazard. Of course when they were being legislated against, like a true rebel, I briefly thought "Now I need one..." and even thought how to rationalize it "....because they might be a good investment if grandfathered in".

Glad I didn't go down that road.

I still disagree with the principle of 'banning' whatever is politically-incorrect though... :evil:

I agree with you Doc this is NOT the way America is supposed to work. Seems a might totalitarian to me.

on a more positive note, it is said that over a million - greater-than 10-round magazines were shipped to california in just one week.

Since I had my fill of AR's when I was in the service, I've never been interested buying an AR, never mind a bump stock - but am unhappy about the Gov't criminalizing personal property that was previously purchased legally. :evil:

Think about it - What if the Gov't did the same with whatever brand of vehicle you've bought because it was in too many accidents or recalls ?

Never been an AR fan, but I've owned 4 or 5, and still own one. Never a fan of the bump stock, as I saw no purpose for it, but I believe if someone wants one they shouldn't be illegal to own. There are numerous things that are regulated, or very tough to own. A bump stock should have simply become another Class 3 item, and allow people who really want one to simply pay a small tax and register them to keep them. If a bump stock is illegal, then how long before all Class 3 weapons are made illegal too?

After you've shot a MG a few times you realize it's just a waste of time and money. Yes, I fired thousands of rds from my Ma Duce on my tank in RVN and thousands more from an M-60 and the M73 co-axial MG on the side of the main gun. That was a war and their effectiveness for spraying an area to suppress hostile fire was unsurpassed. A lot of noise, a lot of empty brass, a lot of dirt clods flying around.

They are designed to not be accurate as they are an 'area coverage' platform not a precision one. They waste a lot of ammo, tear up the surrounding area, and produce lots of collateral damage to the area around the intended target. In a civilian environment where we are responsible for the entire flight path of each and every round we fire, they are an extreme hazard to the operator's own life, liberty, and economic well being as well as a real danger to everyone around them. Anyone killed or injured by your actions can wipe you out financially and result in a long prison sentence, destroying your life and possibly the lives of your family as well.

The opportunity to fire a full auto MG is fun for the first time and I recommend everyone who hasn't tried one, to do so in a controlled environment where danger to yourself and others is mitigated. Other than that, they are nice collector pieces but loose their appeal very soon if you have to pay the bill to feed and maintain one.

Doc, do you remember the incredible run on AR lowers back in 1994? Then the ATF came out and threatened that even if you had the lower, you would have to prove you had the rifle assembled before the law took effect. It wasn't enough to own the parts. And the burden of proof was on the owner of course, not the government. I'm so glad that law sunset.
