    Yes. Because with practice the same action can be achieved using nothing more than a rubber band. Has it even been confirmed that the shooter even used a bump stock?

    Apparently he did no use one according the other article linked above. My apologies.

    I'm still thinking if we outlaw automatic rifles we may as well outlaw modifying your gun to fire as fast as one.

    To not outlaw them seems contrary to the spirit of the law.

    Far as my cars go, them things are REALLY regulated. I can drive it into a crowd I suppose. But to carry on that debate we should talk about the regulations on automatic rifles being just or not.....unless you want to travel the big government path of my dash cam being able to remove your license to drive, which we could debate.

    "The official Bushmaster XM15 manual lists the maximum effective rate of fire at 45 rounds per minute." https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct...ing_and.html&usg=AOvVaw2jsEDCo14PrOTvBszN642n
    So, I guess there really wouldn't be a "practical" application of an AR-15 capable of firing at 500rpm. That said, at 45rpm, one could argue that sport shooting would be a "practical" application. As for the 500 rpm part, an AK-47 "At full cyclic rate, they can fire about 600 rounds per minute (upto 640 rounds per minute for the AKM), with a practical rate of about 100 rounds per minute fully automatic..."https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct...20rifles.htm&usg=AOvVaw3NlcES1wzvpHuE8QSRokYg The BAR is capable of a 500-650 rpm rate, however it is limited to "just" 20 rounds. So, what rifle would you say is capable of firing at 500 rpm that you do not know of a "practical" application for?
