    Absolutely. Like I said, it's as old as the Old West. But your not gonna be able to sustain that with any accuracy over a large number of rounds. More likely end up shooting yourself in the foot or blowing away the target stand or the hanger.

    I imagine a nice cushy jacket like we wore in competition would do a lot to help. Maybe puff up the padding a bit.. Or build it into a firing stand.

    I ADMIT -- had no idea what a bump stock was before this week, but I've shot most every kind of gun. This really needs to be "not so easy"..

    If you know what you're doing, you can take a humble lever action rifle to 30 rounds/minute. It's all relative.

    As a general rule, full auto fire is suppressive, not controlled. IF the shooter had been armed with a semi auto and had a good flash suppressor, he'd have been much more effective, but I won't debate that subject in a forum where I believe a nutcase or two might be lurking.

    The Right to keep and bear Arms is not a right granted by the Constitution and it does not depend upon the Constitution. The RIGHT is above the law and if we don't defend it, we may as well become a socialist cesspool.

    Yeah, we have nutjobs and it is there that we need to expend our efforts... NOT trying to dismantle the Second Amendment on the installment plan.

    if this clown had not used a "Bump stock" and instead took a controlled and "aimed" shot every 2-3 seconds, he would have killed a lot more people.

    One could easily argue the (novelty - no serious shooter uses one) bump stock saved lives!!

    Yeah. Like I said, I'm all for the idealism and enthusiasm for freedom. But the society is SICK -- going on demented and you don't WANT more legal firepower right now. Not EVEN in the hands of every cop.

    I predict in a decade or two, the whole field of neuroscience will allow us to actually MEASURE "mental capacity" and rational behavior. Until we can have psych doctors who USE those measurements, these folks are handing out psycho-active drugs like Halloween candy. TODAY -- we can't rely on them for diagnosis and monitoring. We'll have to fix that. Don't trust them to determine who can buy and possess.

    Even this recent shooter is alleged to be under psych care and on anti-depressants. Which are ABSOLUTELY prone to invoking suicidal and anti-social behavior.

    Suggest the focus be on CCW and taking illegal guns off the streets. And on strictly keeping the semi-auto capability against all challenges by the dumb-nuts who want to focus on how they look - rather than how they work.
