    No, because a bump stock isn't a firearm.

    I'd be okay with holding gun sellers or producers economically culpable for unlawful deaths due to the use of a product they sold. I would because part of the fully cost of unlawful gun use is the loss of life and ability stemming from it. That cost should be borne by producers and sellers and in turn passed on to buyers.

    Now., sure as I've written the remarks above, I realize that the viability of such a proposal depends on the price elasticity/inelasticity for guns, and I don't know what it is.

    You obviously don't know what defines an automatic weapon.

    Oh yeah? He (unconstitutionally btw) wrote laws via executive orders, bub. And regulatory agencies have fairly wide birth to de facto write laws via rules.

    My claim is in the civil law, not the criminal law. When an auto maker knows a flaw in their product and does nothing about it, and it harms another, they have breached their duty to the public.

    In this case, history has taught all of us that guns have been used to commit mass murder. The product in question creates an ability for the gun to kill more in a shorter period of time.

    Not a liberal. But why would someone need a semi. Sounds counterproductive to me. While vast majority owners of semis are responsible, all it takes is one or more nutjobs like the Vegas shooter.

    Since I spent 9 1/2 years in the military defending you from Commies so you could today be putting your opinion on this site, yes I think I do know what is a automatic weapon and a semi automatic weapon.

    Is this weapon an automatic or semi automatic weapon?

    It's sad that loons like you are so blinded by partisanship that you cannot hold your elites accountable for anything.
