It's done. New "Machinegun" Definition

Recommended Posts

It's not done yet! This is the beginning of a court battle and the law is on our side. Most legal scholars think this regulation will be stopped with an injunction, drug out for years in court, then overturned. Help fight it here;


Get this, a quote from our enemy confirms the legal standing of such a regulation;

After the review was announced, Feinstein said, “current law does not allow the agency to ban or regulate bump-fire stocks” and said Congress needed to act.

This is also just the beginning of another public comment period, good luck finding where to leave comments with a google search! I have yet to find a link that gives the actual instructions for commenting but have seen numerous references to the final 90 day comment period;






Here is a quote from the AG;

"Since the day he took office, President Trump has had no higher priority than the safety of each and every American," Sessions said in a statement. "That is why today the Department of Justice is publishing for public comment a proposed rule-making 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."

This isn't over brothers, this is just the pivotal point in the battle, time to grit our teeth and and attack into the ambush! Here is the link for the federal registry, maybe someone smarter than me can find this proposed regulation here, and where to comment!

Gonna be honest here. I cant be mad at any politicians who back a bumpstock ban when so many "pro gun" people back it. Even on this forum, which is unusually woke, there are people who have implied support for it. The collateral damage that comes along with any bumpstock ban, no matter how carefully worded, is unavoidable. Wish everyone would see that before they spout off online about "bumpstocks are stoopid hurdur"

Yep, that is a link to the earlier comment period, the ATF took comments before they submitted this current regulation change. Somewhere there is a place to comment on this latest rule wording but it is being very well hidden. I'm hoping some of the anti 2A will start putting it out to their people so we can find it. I have literally spent hours looking for information on where to comment but just keeping getting articles quoting the ag about the final comment stage.......

I keep hoping Trump 3D chess, he knows that it will be tied up in court, the ag can assign an idiot to represent the government, the government loses and he can blame it on the court. Fingers crossed but I still keep range cards updated...........

It may be that it has not been placed on the roster yet? Government does work slowly.

Interestingly I did see a regulation proposal to eliminate the "national television audience reach cap" This caps the size of the TV audience that can be reached by an entity at 39% of the TV viewers. Looks like the establishment is trying to further consolidate their propaganda machine.....
