    Except they worded it so any modification of a trigger that makes the gun easier to shoot could now be illegal...including fixing a bad factory trigger for simply a better trigger....typical anti gun, bait and switch....

    By the way, for those unfamiliar, here's how a bump stock works with an AR.

    The bump stock resets the trigger, making it unecessary for the user to pump the trigger repeatedly as with a normal semi-auto. While still technically not a full auto, which of course is illegal, essentially you have a full auto since all you have to do is put pressure on the trigger and the sliding bump stock does the work of resetting the trigger for you.

    Voila, a machine gun.

    The thing is, you can take away the bump stock, and this guy with two AR's and a pile of clips, he could have easily killed as many as he did with the normal AR semi-auto, maybe more since
    there's a good chance that having the bump stock, was the main reason the smoke alarm went off, thus cutting short his shooting spree.

    The M-4 is NOT fully automatic. If it is full auto, then it is not an M-4.

    The M-16 has a full auto capability.

    Fucking bullshit. Start pushing for a law that requires one to have the same license as required for a full auto .45 Thompson to have the AR and AK type weapons off of your property. You get caught with such and no license off your property, you get a felony conviction, all your guns seized and destroyed, and forever barred from owning or having a gun on your person.

    Every time some asshole takes a bunch of lives, you insane fuckers say it is all too emotional a time to make a judgement. More people have died in the US from guns since 1968 than died in all our wars.
