    Trump Overturns Obama-Era Law: Bans All Bump Stock Devices

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-...-stock-devices

    Perhaps needing a distraction from the fiscal folly of today's $1.3 trillion monster spending bill... or perhaps looking to show progress ahead of tomorrow's expected-to-be-huge "march For Life" across America, President Trump has swung his Oval Office ax at another Obama-era law and followed through on his promise to ban bump stocks.



    Obama Administration legalized bump stocks. BAD IDEA. As I promised, today the Department of Justice will issue the rule banning BUMP STOCKS with a mandated comment period. We will BAN all devices that turn legal weapons into illegal machine guns.
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 23, 2018


    Full Statement from AG Sessions:

    ATTORNEY GENERAL SESSIONS ANNOUNCES REGULATION EFFECTIVELY BANNING BUMP STOCKS

    ASHINGTON - Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Department of Justice is proposing to amend the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, clarifying that bump stocks fall within the definition of "machinegun" under federal law, as such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger.

    In making the announcement, Attorney General Sessions made the following statement:

    "Since the day he took office, President Trump has had no higher priority than the safety of each and every American," said Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    "That is why today the Department of Justice is publishing for public comment a proposed rulemaking that would define `machinegun' to include bump stock-type devices under federal law - effectively banning them. After the senseless attack in Las Vegas, this proposed rule is a critical step in our effort to reduce the threat of gun violence that is in keeping with the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress. I look forward to working with the President's School Safety Commission to identify other ways to keep our country and our children safe, and I thank the President for his courageous leadership on this issue."

    On February 20, 2018, the President issued a memorandum instructing the Attorney General "to dedicate all available resources to... propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machineguns." This NPRM is in response to that direction, and would make clear that the term "machinegun" as used in the National Firearms Act (NFA), as amended, and Gun Control Act (GCA), as amended, includes all bump-stock-type devices that harness recoil energy to facilitate the continuous operation of a semiautomatic long gun after a single pull of the trigger. If the NPRM is made final, bump-stock-type devices would be effectively banned under federal law and current possessors of bump-stock-type devices would be required to surrender, destroy, or otherwise render the devices permanently inoperable.

    Bump stocks are banned.

    New sales of fully automatic weapons are banned.

    This is somehow "in keeping with the Constitution".

    Shall Not Be Infringed is what it says.

    Can somebody please explain how wholesale bans of parts and weapons are not "infringing".

    Not anymore.

    I have tried to give the benefit of doubt, tried to be "open minded" on this guy.

    Not anymore.

    He is what everybody knew he was all along: a NYC progressive playing the role of a "limited government conservative", a hustler, a flim flam man, a con artist.

    Worse yet, an unabashed worshiper of the police state type progressive.

    Wait until the next "terror" attack happens...watch what little liberty we have left disappear.

    We would have been much better off as the "enraged opposition".

    Obama was the best thing to ever happen to gun rights, and I made more money under his regime than I ever did in my life.

    Under Trump, I'm going backwards, slowly losing money every month, making (in real FRNs), what I was making 25 years ago and the outfit I work for went bankrupt.

    Yep. And worse than Hillary in that he got our former allies to cheer for him. The preeminent conman.

    The supreme court has explained it multiple times, even the strictest constitutionalists. It doesn't mean what you think it means.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    I think he was talking about technical capability to jam it up. But yeah, they're not even reading internet comments, let alone be influenced by them.

    Who were the most Constitutional Justices within the SCOTUS?

    Maybe a top five, in your opinion.
