Read below and do above. Like I said, IMPORTANT! Nemo From the Virginia Citizens Defense League (GCO equivalent in Va) VCDL.ORG ACTION ITEM - BATFE REVIEWING BUMP STOCKS FOR POSSIBLE BAN Bump stocks had previously been reviewed by BATFE under the Obama administration and they concluded that the device was NOT a "machine gun." We agree. However, after the massacre in Las Vegas, there was the usual push to "do something," and bump stocks were in the spotlight. There was pressure for BATFE to review their previous ruling and to ban bump stocks. In the middle of the Christmas/New Years holiday the comment period has begun for BATFE reviewing the bump stock ruling and we need to get out comments telling BATFE to leave bump stocks alone. Whether you like the concept of bump stocks or not, we need to stand together and protect our rights. An attack on one firearm or firearm accessory is an attack on all of them and all of us. No sacrificial lamb will ever satiate the gun grabbers. Every time they take something from us, nothing is given in return and they come back more empowered to take the next item, whatever that might be. Why does someone "need" a bump stock? For a free people it's not about needs, but about wants. Don't let the anti-rights people divide us, ever. They absolutely love it when one group of gun owners says another group of gun owners doesn't "need" something, such as back in 1993 when many hunters were saying no one needed an AR-15. We were divided and we got a 10 year "assault weapon" ban.

Feel free to use it as is or to modify it as you see fit: - It is important that rules are made based on logic, reason, facts, and law, not emotion, political correctness, or politics. Bump stocks were already examined by the BATFE and determined NOT to be machine guns. That was clearly the correct answer. A semi-automatic firearm equipped with a bump stock still fires only one round with each pull of the trigger. A person can bump fire a semi-automatic firearm with nothing more than their bare hands and the proper technique. Others can work the trigger in a conventional fashion, but very fast, and achieve a bump stock rate-of-fire. As long as one pull of the trigger fires one shot on a semi-automatic firearm, no accessory can be legitimately classified as a "machine gun."
