    Jeff Sessions is making it official: If you have a bump stock, you will have to surrender it, destroy it, or render it permanently inoperable.

    WTH? Did Sessions and Trump not study the Constitution they vowed to uphold? Ex post facto laws are unconstitutional. Bump stocks are worthless since you can pull the trigger and fire semi auto more accurately and almost as fast as the bump stock, but it was the principle.

    For all their jockeying, Trump and Sessions screwed gun owners by circumventing the Constitution's ban on ex post facto laws. May ye rot in Hell Donald Chump.

    Coming next... AR 15s????

    He's trying to disappoint his supporters twice in one day, in hopes that they forget about it by Monday. And they will.

    I haven't read that he went through with it, but it has been reported that the Trump administration was moving towards the decision.

    ALL Republican presidents end up supporting gun control on the installment plan. Trump just showed us what he thinks of the Constitution... like George Bush saying it wasn't nothing more than a G.D. piece of paper.

    IF Trump read the Constitution, he'd know that ex post facto laws are unconstitutional, but he can always hide behind commies like Kagan and use that as a defense.

    Now, how long before it's mags, the AR, semi-autos? BTW, Florida is confiscating weapons as well.

    This is as ignorant as it is wrong.

    Laws governing fully automatic firearms have been enacted in 1934, 1968, and 1986, respectively – rendering illegal the possession of machineguns not obtained pursuant to those laws.

    Consequently, the classification of ‘bump-fire’ stocks as machineguns does not violate the Constitution’s prohibition of ex post facto laws.
