Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.
And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill–put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)–Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill:

Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ)
Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA)
Rep, Ed Royce (R-CA)
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ)
Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN)
Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA)
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)
Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA)

Should there names and why go into the Library?

If this was an attempt to do away with nothing but "bump stocks," I'd say this ain't the hill to die on. Before the LV shooting, I'd barely even heard of "bump stocks," though I understood the principle. (Weren't they invented as an aid for handicapped shooters?) But here's the problem.

Quote
“[The bill will] prohibit the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle but does not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machinegun [sic], and for other purposes.”

In other words, in typical Leftist style, the bill that will be touted as the "Bump Stock Bill" will open a big door to all kinds of other restrictions, none of them related to full-auto conversions or function, and all of them based on "the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle," which not one co-sponsor of the bill can define within 300% plus or minus. This must not proceed, and those Republicans who sign on must be singled out for censure.

This is just the latest in a long line of "Saturday Night Special" bills -- total bullshit.

Agreed.  Could not opening the door for other restrictions in the long run also open the door for gun confiscation; deeming those guns with alterations/conversions as illegal and must be turned over to the BATF?
