If I thought for a minute they'd leave the rest of my gear alone, I'd probably roll over on this. But, they won't.

A lot of stuff is going to go away now that cops were at a disadvantage from this shooter.  They are no longer toys for the range.

Interesting that it was reported there were automatic weapons and now that report seems to be quietly disappearing.  LA Times, PBS/NPR and I think either ABC or CBS were reporting that yesterday, directly siting Congressman Adam Schiff who said the FBI told him in a briefing.  I looked up Schiff and found he has been involved in gun discussion in the past and has a pretty clear stance on it.

There are also several outlets with incorrect information about bump stocks being "converters" or fully automatic conversions.

Tragic and strange story all around, both what happened during the event as well as after.

I can't imagine how a person could get in that frame of mind.

I'm a gun nut and I dont see any need for bump stocks to be legal.  Say what you want, it sounded like a fully automatic weapon to me over the audio.

The whole story could change in a couple of days. Just wait.

That is because every media outlet wants to be the first to report something, even without confirmation of what they are reporting.  It wasn't until the pictures came out that they had any proof of what he used.  Even those may not be real.  I still see articles reporting automatic weapons being used after the pictures have come out.  Once the sheriff lets us know what they found, then we will know.  Most of us who know anything about those guns can assume that he either used a bump stock or a crank.  He was not just pulling the trigger really fast.

Well at least if they ban them it'll save save you the cost of buying the bump stock.  You can still do the same thing with a rubber band, shoe lace, or belt loop if you want.   Won't make any difference if someone wants to spray a crowd with bullets.  At least the liberals will FEEL good until the next evil person comes along...

There was an article this morning that had a list of some of the guns in the room. The article said only 2 rifles had bump stocks. I can seem to find it now but if I do I will post it.

With some practice, a light trigger pull and the right grip it's not that hard to bump fire an AR platform rifle and probably not hard for an AK or Sks either.


I'm with Pman probably wouldn't care if this stupidity stopped at a bump fire stock.

And I have seen some that says he had 10 guns with bump stocks.  I think everyone is guessing.

Inslee was just on the radio talking about a bump fire ban.  If I was a betting man, I would say we have one before the end of the year.

Never saw the appeal of them , other than they throw alot of bullets downrange fast. It's funny the media's take on things before all the evidence comes out. 1st was full auto , next was he modified a semi auto into full auto.
Since Monday morning guys on AR15 were calling BS  on full auto by listening to the rate of fire from the videos. Alot of them said he used Bump fires based on the audio. He did have 4 Daniel Defense rifles with bump fires attached though.

Ever notice that almost every mass killer was on some psychotropic drug pretty close to the time when they assploded and went kill crazy? This dude was on Valium and maybe more. Check out the last ten mass murderers. You will be surprised at the correlation of psychotropic drugs and mass murderers.

That's an interesting take, but it's also a chicken-egg issue. If the majority of heart attack patients are on meds for hypertension, can we assume the meds caused the heart attack?

 So how many of those firearms were purchased prior to his prescription?

 After the prescription, would it be lawful to storm his residencies and confiscate all his weapons?

 These are legit questions that need to be answered.

 Clearly he purchased firearms prior to his prescription.......but once you are prescribed medications such as "Valium", do you surrender your 2A rights? :dunno:
