Congress hasn't passed a bump stock ban. The ATF merely redefined bump stocks to make them Class III items under the NFA.

'Stroke of a pen, legal becomes illegal.

'Not the way it's supposed to work.

Additionally, even if Congress did pass such a ban, it would be virtually identical to the ban they passed against switchblades back in the late '50s because of "West Side Story". (Every state did, too, BTW.) IOW an extreme political reaction to a perceived but non-existent problem. Many states have rescinded that prohibition since, Florida having done so in 2003.

The whole thing is ridiculous, but the more important issue here is the Chevron thingy. Bureaucrats should not be permitted to write laws by fiat.



Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
