    This bill could be used to ban all semi-auto firearms that hold more than 6 rounds.
    It’s NOT worded to only apply to bump fire stocks, although that seems to be the intent, in light of the Las Vegas massacre.

    Every semi auto uses a gun’s recoil to reload itself which, when you disregard the trigger’s role in firing, is what enables the gun to shoot again.


    Bad bill on that account.
    Mary Margaret Oliver is either devious or ignorant of how guns work.

    Pulling the trigger, consciously or not, with your finger or with some other trigger-poking object, MUST be part of the definition of bump stock.

    Also notice she sticks them with NFA items, as such this is not.

    Rep. Oliver Pre-Files Legislation to Prohibit Bump Fire Stocks in Georgia
    ATLANTA – State Representative Mary Margaret Oliver (D-Decatur) yesterday pre-filed House Bill 651, legislation for the 2018 legislative session of the Georgia General Assembly, which would ban the possession and use of bump fire stocks in Georgia.

    “We already prohibit dangerous weapons like bazookas and rocket launchers, and it is time that Georgia has a serious discussion about banning bump fire stocks as well,” said Rep. Oliver. “These devices allow rifles to be modified to imitate semi-assault rifles, and banning such devices has recently been the center of many national discussions. I believe this legislation will see bipartisan support and look forward to starting this necessary conversation in our state.”

    HB 651 would make it illegal for Georgians to possess or use bump fire stocks. Under the bill, violators would be punished by up to five years in prison.

    Representative Mary Margaret Oliver represents the citizens of District 82, which includes portions of DeKalb County. She was elected into the House of Representatives in 2002, and she currently serves on the Appropriations Subcommittee on Human Resources and the Governmental Affairs, Judiciary, Juvenile Justice, and Science & Technology committees.

    "Semi-assault rifles" :?

    I guess "semi-automatic" is morphing to a new scary-sounding term.

    Whenever Mary Margaret Oliver uses the word "conversation" regarding firearms, what she really means is confiscation at the point of government guns, even if lives on both sides are lost.

    To her, a little bloodshed in such a scenario is a good and acceptable means to attain her goal of disarming free American citizens. She should be tried in a U.S. Court of Law for treason due to her disloyalty to the U.S. Constitution.

    I think MMO's hatred of anything remotely considered associated with males is hard for her to contain. I noticed this in the early 90's when the frenzy was focused on child support and custody. When a non-custodial was sitting on their front steps with a gun to their own head, I'm sure she was thinking win-win.

    As to her bill being from ignorance or her being devious, I would say both.

    She is adding them to NFA. She just can't do that.

    I'm hoping her bill is a non-starter anyway, but will that inconsistency alone sink it? I think it's pretty evident bills aren't actually read before voted on.

    Could be used? It's worded that way as is. The bill, if passed as is, would ban semi auto weapons that use recoil to enable the weapon to shoot more than six shots. That is pretty much any combat semi auto handgun, e.g., the 1911.

    Just a taste of what we will be facing should she and her fellow Communists attain power in GA.
