Trumps Bump Stock Ban Request

You watch Trump for a while and you begin to see what he's doing and how he does it. Today he called for a bump stock ban:
"Today, I am directing the Department of Justice to dedicate all available resources to complete the review of the comments received, and, as expeditiously as possible, to propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said in his memo that the White House released after he spoke.
A lot of RINOS will love this as it suggests they do something that might get Donks to vote for them (it won't) and at the same time fend off their angry conservative constituents by pointing at Trump as the instigator. Might even mitigate the attacks by the whiny snowflakes.

Now return with me to those thrilling days of yesteryear when the ATF looked at bump stocks and flatly declared that they do not turn a semiautomatic firearm into a machine gun. Twice. Now go back and carefully re-read the Trump memo, especially the emboldened part.

Gun control: What you do instead of something. In the meantime, here's an article speculating on what might happen should a major piece of gun control legislation pass and the left hold 5 seats on the Supreme Court.

I can reach though my trigger guard and hook my finger on m belt loop and fire faster than any bumpstop. This is stupid.
