Folks,

This thread has been opened for the purpose of alerting members to anti-gun legislation, regulations, and other pertinent events that affect our rights to self-defense, hunting, and general firearms ownership.

While this is unfortunately necessary, given the political climate, it gets a little weary to babysit the flame wars that invariably start. Thus, the thread will be for announcements only, and only the moderators may add to it.

So..... if you have an announcement, please forward it to one of the mods, or myself (use the 'contact us' link at the bottom of the page), and be sure to include a reputable link or verification of the actual legislation/rules/etc.

"My buddy heard from his barber's 3rd cousin's neighbor..." doesn't count. Do your research, too.

I would prefer to leave the thread open for general posting, but moderating should not be akin to herding a bunch of 3 year olds who missed nap time. So it is going to be in this format for the time being. Long experience has taught us this. There have probably been more people banned from the forum, for instigating political flame wars, than anything else besides spam.

Pertinent, well-thought-out, non-flaming comments to such postings, can be forwarded to myself or the moderators, and it will be at our discretion as to whether to add them.

"Those decisions did not include extensive legal analysis relating to the definition of “machinegun.” Nonetheless, they indicated that semiautomatic firearms modified with these bump-stock-type devices did not fire “automatically,” and were thus not “machineguns,” because the devices did not rely on internal springs or similar mechanical parts to channel recoil energy. ATF has now determined that that conclusion does not reflect the best interpretation of the term “machinegun” under the GCA and NFA. In this proposed rule, the Department accordingly interprets the definition of “machinegun” to clarify that all bump-stock-type devices are “machineguns” under the GCA and NFA because they convert a semiautomatic firearm into a firearm that shoots automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger."

Under this definition all they have to do is design a bump fixture for ANY SEMI AUTO EVER MADE and since none are manually reloaded all can be so classified as machineguns. The bump stock requires several things,

1. the addition of the equipment.

2. rifle must be held loosely so it can freely move forward and the finger actuates the trigger for all follow on shots.

3. clamping a rifle in a hard mount or utilization of a sling that stops the free movement will cause an immediate stoppage.

4. the definition which seems to imply manual reloading is required is the operative term.here.

As indicated below just placing the trigger finger and thumb properly and holding the rifle so it can bounce forward will classify all SEMI AUTOS as a machineguns as obviously there is no manual reloading occurring. All semi auto pistols can be defined as a machinegun.

As well do a search of the word "manual" The definition of "manual" is defined "relating to or done with the hands."

Move quickly and write opposition to this proposal.

You may get this, keep trying. Several have got it and kept trying and finally got it. One guy said there were 30,000 hits on it in first 24 hours.


Anybody want to bet the anti gun folks have not passed this to the anti gun kids to log on a vote. All you need is the address and a computer and they have their vote in. I sent mine in about 4 hours ago.

If they get more than we do the press will say that it proves most of the country if against them but the wording of the law can be applied to any semi auto rifle, handgun or double barrel shotgun with single trigger.
