    You really cannot read in a cognitive manner. I posted nothing that indicates approval of Obabble's incredibly incompetent and malicious actions as POTUS.

    1. I'm a veteran. I qualified EXPERT with an M-16

    2. A semi-automatic weapon fires repeatedly but only once each time you pull the trigger.

    3. An automatic weapon fires repeatedly but you need only pull the trigger once and hold it down.

    Now which happens with a bump stock in place and doing what it's designed to do?

    So you agree with those who want to outlaw the bump stock but instead of arguing with those who don't you're arguing with the people you agree with.

    That's a bit demented, isn't it?

    The trigger still is being pulled each time the semi is fired, just a little faster, but not as fast as a fully auto. Are you scared of the little ole gun, did you wet your pants? Pajama boy?

    A BUMP STOCK vs stock without a bump rail feature is like a power antena vs a fixed antena on your car.

    your radio isnt affected, the user benefits.

    I have noted that they are legal, so suing the manufacturers of a legal product is bogus. Making them illegal wouldn't have stopped Paddock. He was psychotic, and would have found another method (i.e. car bomb) to take out as many people as possible without them. This case is an extreme outlier edge case...the type which is a poor basis for public policy.

    It's also quite disgusting to see your loons immediately politicize this horrific aberration instead of showing concern for the victims, their loved ones, and the responders.

    A gun that does not require YOU to pull the trigger for every shot is automatic.

    And there are all different rates of automatic fire, btw. Not surprised you wouldn't know that.

    Which makes it by definition automatic fire.
