Second Amendment Organization: If ATF Proposed Regulation Goes Into Effect, Half A Million Bump Stock Owners Will Be Instant Felons

“What should surprise gun owners is that it was a Republican administration that put a gun parts maker out of business — especially since the Obama administration had refused to take such a course of action on several occasions.”

Gun Owners of America have been steadfast as a Second Amendment lobbying organization on behalf of the American people. On Wednesday, GOA Executive Director Erich Pratt issued a statement on the closing of Slide Fire, a manufacturer of gun parts, namely bump stocks, due to the misinformation campaign about bump stocks and the gun confiscation compromises of the Trump administration.

“It’s sad, but not surprising, that Slide Fire is closing its doors,” said Pratt. “What should surprise gun owners is that it was a Republican administration that put a gun parts maker out of business — especially since the Obama administration had refused to take such a course of action on several occasions.”

Indeed, it was the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah that approved bump stocks.

Pratt went on to state the deliberate misinformation campaign against bump stocks.

“There has been so much misinformation on bump stocks,” he said. “Even the news surrounding Slide Fire’s closing has consistently misconstrued bump stocks as items that can convert a semi-automatic into a machinegun. That’s just not the case.”

No, it certainly isn’t. Adding a bump stock to a semi-automatic rifle does not in any way, shape or form convert it into a fully automatic machine gun. It only aids in increasing the rate of fire, but still only fires one round per pull of the trigger.

In fact, as I’ve pointed out previously, you don’t even need a bump stock to bump fire. You can use your belt loop.
