It will pass, because it makes sense. Bump-stocks are just a way to get around the prohibition against machine guns, and everybody knows it. They should never have been legal in the first place, unless you believe that anyone should be permitted to own and shoot a fully-automatic weapon (most people don't believe this).

We need to hang people until this point is solidified.

You are right. We should get rid of the prohibition against machine-guns. But first: make sure this doesn't pass.

I think anyone who should be able to own a gun should be able to fire fully automatic weapons.

Fully automatic flash and sound suppressed weapons, you mean.

It passing isn't the issue.

  1. Congress will use it to do other things. This sounds like it could be used to ban high capacity magazines - who decides the base rate of fire? Some Hillary supporter in a cushy government job? Here, enjoy your 5 round magazines.

  2. Republicans will do this on their own and will not negotiate for something they want from Democrats; Democrats who never give anything away for free even when there are dead bodies. Can we at least get nationwide concealed carry?
