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.

What it is and was the masses will never know. In incidents like this nothing is as it appears.

Bump Stocks had JACK to do with it.

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.
