    There is no “and”... It’s self evident that regardless of capability; responsibility lies solely with the operator. Whether it be guns, or cars.

    He was firing bursts of around ten seconds
    Ten seconds of hell

    Grab another magazine and you are good for another ten seconds

    Why anyone needs that firepower beyond me
    Unless you are planning on a massacre

    And they could also save lives....they can keep black lives matter rioters from burning and looting your store. They can keep looters and roving gangs of criminals from attacking you and your family after a hurricane when there are no police available.....and if you are a rancher on the border with the Narco state of Mexico, you will find them handy if you have Coyotes or drug runners using your property as a delivery route....since the police may be an hour away.....

    Different tools for different jobs.

    Yeah, but I remember the election and the vile disgusting hatred directed at Americans with the threat of violence as the answer, if that had not just been a bunch of lies I would have welcomed a gun that could deliver that kind of "slaughter and mayhem"..and who knows, maybe they weren't lies, maybe they were worried about such weapons, and if they weren't then why should we be?

    Fellow poster,

    I think you have fallen into a logic trap.

    Consider if I have a deck on the back of my house and a porch on the front. If both are in need of maintenance but I only have time to do one, should I not work on the deck today then deal with the porch tomorrow?

    If you feel there is a problem with automobiles we'll work on it tomorrow (or in another thread) and work on bump stocks here. (one word or two?)

    Now you do have a point. If I need to kill bunches and bunches of people quickly nothing like a machine gun.

    In your opinion should machine guns be legal then? I view bumpstocks in the same vein, if machine guns are legal then heck yea a bumper should be.

    I think you jumped into the same logic trap. This isn't about your deck or porch, it's about the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. We can work on your deck or porch tomorrow.... just saying.

    For the record, I don't have a problem with outlawing the sale of bump stocks. The problem is, anyone can make a homemade bump stock. Of course, you can make possessing one illegal, just like sawed-off shotguns... but bad people will still have them.
