Thirty years into the national debate over semi-automatic rifles and ammunition magazines designed for defensive purposes, the only thing that has changed is the openness with which Democrats demonstrate their determination to prohibit the private ownership of firearms.
If judges allow the BATFE to override laws passed by Congress, the historically corrupt agency will have a green light to go after semi-automatic firearms next.
If the government can get away with lawlessly declaring a piece of plastic to be a machine gun, then it can get away with saying your AR-15 is a machine gun, knocking in your door, confiscating your guns, and throwing you in prison.
A bump stock does not change the mechanics of the rifle in any way, shape, or form. It does not turn a semi-automatic rifle into a machine gun.
Private ownership of machine guns made after 1986 is banned by federal law. All pre-1986 automatic weapons must be registered with the ATF and require extensive background checks before private citizens may own them.
America’s top firearms enforcement agency approved a gun accessory it formerly banned. This could have major implications for industry and even undercut more than 80 years of gun control.
First it was Katie Couric. Then it was Bryant Gumbel. Now an op-ed writer for the New York Times has decided to distort statements to smear gun owners.
A national gun registry would be just as stupid and ineffective as Washington DC’s gun registry.
