The Bump by the Supreme Court could allow Machine Guns

The U.S. Supreme Court’s most extreme members, who are daily being accused of corruption and conflicts of interest, are now squeezing the Biden administration to justify the policy that prohibits gun stocks that can turn a semiautomatic gun into an automatic weapon. The ban came as a result of a mass killing in which a crazed gunman shot dozens of people with a modified weapon that used a “bump stock.”  According to the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) website, “On December 18, 2018, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker announced that the Department of Justice has amended the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), clarifying that bump stocks fall within the definition of a“machinegun” under federal law, as such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger.”  This rule has alarmed gun extremists, who have challenged every law or rule that limits their slaughtering rights with the backing of the arms manufacturer’s gun lobby. Macho-inspired people cannot claim such a weapon is for sporting or hunting purposes. This weapon modification gives those supporting riot and insurrection a battlefield weapon to be used on Americans who differ from them. According to the FBI, bump stocks are devices that can fire up to 1,000 rounds of ammunition in 11 minutes. This is how the shooter in Las Vegas was able to kill 58, with more than 500 wounded, during the worst mass shooting in American history. …

The U.S. Supreme Court’s most extreme members, who are daily being accused of corruption and conflicts of interest, are now squeezing the Biden administration to justify the policy that prohibits gun stocks that can turn a semiautomatic gun into an automatic weapon.

This rule has alarmed gun extremists, who have challenged every law or rule that limits their slaughtering rights with the backing of the arms manufacturer’s gun lobby. Macho-inspired people cannot claim such a weapon is for sporting or hunting purposes. This weapon modification gives those supporting riot and insurrection a battlefield weapon to be used on Americans who differ from them. According to the FBI, bump stocks are devices that can fire up to 1,000 rounds of ammunition in 11 minutes. This is how the shooter in Las Vegas was able to kill 58, with more than 500 wounded, during the worst mass shooting in American history. This was proof that such a device could turn an ordinary gun into a killing machine. Why is the argument in favor of such a modification? Those without respect for human life can imagine themselves in a perpetual war are the problem. 

The original law banning machine guns was passed in 1934 because of the use of them by gangsters and mobsters during the era of illegal alcohol. The conservatives on the court are sure to use all sorts of legal wordy mumbo jumbo to find narrow pathways to protect those who have evil intentions.

Their lawyers will try to find all sorts of trigger functions, mechanical recoils, and fine details to allow this weapon manipulation to fly in the face of reason. In the meantime, bump stock sales are up by those trying to move ahead of the legal determinations that the Supreme Court may make.

Interestingly, Texas seems to have everything bigger here, including the stupidity. Austin, Texas, gun store owner Michael Cargill challenged the ban in courts after he was supposedly forced to surrender his bump stocks. The bottom line seems to be the availability of such modifications. By using the recoil of a bullet explosion against the shoulder, the gun can shoot continuously, which would satisfy a killer’s intention. 

In 2018, the ATF prohibited bump stocks. However, gun lovers, or gun nuts, tested the rule in federal court, arguing that only Congress can establish such a law to ban the device and not a federal agency. Terror in the streets was banned in 1934 when Al Capone and his criminal mob used automatic weapons on each other, the police, and anyone who stood in their way. Proponents of the device claim that people with arthritic fingers need help with pulling the trigger—wow, we feel sorry for them!           At the point when inclination spurs unlawful acts, it is viewed as a hate crime. Most hateful actions are motivated by racism and religious intolerance, yet hateful acts today have many other faces as well. Hateful acts of violence destroy lives and can grow into networks of followers that have seized a loophole into which they can perpetuate violent acts of terror. In the climate of today, it is no longer about selling illegal alcohol but about hatred of sale and the devices needed to carry out the hatred. The bump stock ban should remain in place as responsible gun owners don’t need machine gun-type weapons to kill rabbits or deer.
