This is the first time I have ever agreed with Ed Good. Bump Stocks and any other parts that make a semi auto firearm simulate full auto should be considered NFA (National Firearms Act) items & require the same background check & tax stamp as full auto weapons.

It is clear to me that some changes are going to happen re. firearms laws given the political climate & or public opinion. Now is the time for the NRA & other organizations to be working to negotiate with support for reasonable changes such as NFA status for the bump stocks & extreme high capacity magazines in exchange for national concealed carry reciprocity, removal of sound suppressors from NFA status & other items.

I agree that banning or putting bump stocks & extreme high capacity magazines under NFA classification won't make a major difference in mass shootings but it's most likely to happen anyway so we might as well try to get some useful legislation passed along with it. I would hope magazine capacity could be kept @ around 20 rounds as 10 rounds would outlaw lots of popular handguns.


Bullshit. Plenty of gun laws already in place, most of them pretty worthless. Wackos are sneaky.

IMHO, the NRA won't abandon their 'never give a inch' position on this. They learned the hard way not to negotiate with the gun haters...Geo

Also, the NFA of 1934 did not ban us from the possession of silencers or machine guns. It placed a $200 tax on them along with a background check.

The Las Vegas shooter was a multi-millionaire who easily passed numerous background checks, and could easily afford the NFA tax on restricted items. Ed Good's ideas are just as foolish as always.

Things have been a little constipated in those hallowed legislative halls recently. If something bipartisan makes it to anyone's desk for signing, I'd be curious if it was an opportune mechanism to attach a bunch of sorely missed pork. I wonder how loosely principals are bound to election cycles.

I think this will belie any assessment that gun laws actually work in regard to criminals. Here's what Australia really doesn't want you to know:

What's a diskeet? Is it a juvenile attempt at humor? Personally, I make enough of it that I don't have to pay for crap, but adults could, if they wanted to, have a conversation about his facts.
