    Massachusetts bans bump stocks, 1st state since Vegas massacre to do so

    Bump stocks, the firearms accessory that allows semi-automatic rifles to shoot at a rate closer to automatic weapons, were banned in Massachusetts on Friday, when Republican Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito signed into law a budget bill that included the prohibition. She is serving as acting governor, as Republican Governor Charlie Baker vacations out of state. Despite this bipartisan effort with a Democratic legislature, bump stocks appear to be out of the range of regulation at the federal level. Mass shooter Stephen Paddock used a bump stock during last month’s massacre in Las Vegas, where he killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more. Congress initially considered restricting bump stocks, but that interest has apparently fizzled. California had banned bump stocks prior to the shooting.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Except as to the rule of appointment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.

    Just highlighting a fact that should be pointed out often.

    Unfortunately, where I live, most sheeple think that the R's are working to preserve their 2A rights.

    A state that gets away with banning a type of stock could get away with banning all stocks.

    and triggers

    and barrels

    and ammo

    Firearms are already heavily restricted in Massachusetts, if not outright banned.

    They are not as bad as Ill-Annoy or New Jerky, but they are in the "worst five".

    Which to me, this legislation was waiting in the wings prior to the Vegas tragedy. At this point we still have no idea what happened in Vegas, neither does the police.
