NRA: We’ll support regulating bump stocks

Throwing us a bone because they’re terrified of actual gun control, I imagine:

The National Rifle Association released a statement Thursday afternoon saying that it will support regulations on “bump stocks.”

“The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations,” NRA officials Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox said in a statement.

At a briefing on Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly declined to say where the president stands on bump stocks but made clear that he’s willing to have a conversation on the issue.

“We’re open to having that conversation. We think that we should have that conversation. And we want to be part of it moving forward,” Sanders said.

Just remember: A rubber band on the trigger does the same thing. It’s the guns, stupid.

    All military and military-style weapons should be banned.

    The sale of ammunition should be tightly regulated with limits applied on how much can be purchased.

    There should be a cap on the number of handguns which can be produced and sold. Handgun imports should be prohibited.

    Making a profit from the sales of guns should be prohibited.

    Kennedy’s assassin(s) first chose Miami to do the deed.
    Then they picked Tampa, followed by New Orleans, and finally settled on Dallas.

    The Vegas shooter looked at Boston and Chicago before choosing Las Vegas.

    Only this time the “named assassin” never made it out of the “snipers nest” alive.
    Which meant that ‘a’ Ruby needn’t be called in to clean up the mess like happened in Dallas.

    For some reason the operation in Las Vegas seems eerily reminiscent to the events in Dallas.

    We should take the bone and run with it. Yes, it’s cynical and wholly inadequate to the horrific carnage wrought by right wing domestic terrorists, but it is asubstantive measure that cracks the inviolable NRA hold the political dialogue.
