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.
