The left is doing a great job of dividing the pro-gun community. They have pro-gun personalities fighting, the have hard core guys calling each other sunshine patriots, they have Dems and Reps calling for legislation, they have the ATF sitting their doing nothing so it can continue unabated, YouTube is closing accounts, Gunbroker is flip flopping, people are both joining and quitting the NRA, the GOA and NAGR aren't really doing anything, etc., etc., etc. Definitely looks like round 1 of this match belongs to the libs. Hopefully we can bring it together for round 2 or we are going to lose that one too.
http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2017/10/12/nssfsaami-call-atf-review-bump-fire-stocks/In the wake of the tragic shooting in Las Vegas two important shooting organisations have released a joint statement calling for a review of bump fire-type stocks.
The statement below comes from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI):
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families and loved ones of all those killed and injured in the criminal attack in Las Vegas. The manufacture, distribution and sale of automatic firearms and their components has been stringently regulated by federal laws since 1934. We believe the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) should interpret and enforce existing laws and regulations. We call upon ATF to conduct a prompt review and evaluation of aftermarket trigger activation devices such as bump stocks to determine whether they are lawful to install and use on a firearm under the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA), or whether, if they have no function or purpose other than to convert a conventional firearm into an automatic firearm, they are regulated items under the NFA. We urge Congress to allow ATF to complete its review before considering any legislation so that any policy decisions can be informed by the facts and ATF's analysis.
One of the NSSF's roles is to advocate on behalf of the 'firearms and ammunition industry at all levels and before all branches of government' while SAAMI are known for the testing and safety standards for ammunition and firearms.
The call for a "prompt review and evaluation" come in the wake of the NRA's recent statements and the debate surrounding the issue within the industry and community. Over the weekend Gunbroker moved to ban the sale of SlideFire and BumpFire stocks and subsequently reversed the decision two days later. Adam & Corey have been following that story and the price gouging that has been seen in recent days.
