GUN GABBERS “BUMP STOCK BAN” BILL WOULD/COULD BAN ALL SEMI – AUTOMATIC RIFLES

H.R. 3947 , introduced just three days after the horrible shooting in Las Vegas is being advertised as a bipartisan bump fire stock ban. It actually could ban all semi – automatic rifles in the United States, according to an analysis of the proposed bill.

H.R. 3947, with 189 sponsors, never bans bump fire stocks by name. Instead, the proposal bans any person from possessing or making any part that could be u sed to increase the rate of fire in any semi – automatic rifle.

Aftermarket triggers, such as those made by Timney, CMC, Geissele and a dozen others, are lighter and smoother and thus increase the rate of fire.

The proposed legislation never specifies a b ase rate of fire against which any illegal increases would be judged, a potentially fatal flaw in the bill’s drafting.

Buffer Springs, gas blocks and all sorts of replacement parts for any firearms would render the firearm able to fire faster. Would this render them illegal? Yes, and there is no grandfather provision. They become illegal when the bill becomes law.

This is one of the most dangerous threats to our freedom being disguised as a way to stop madmen like the one in Las Vegas.
