Bump Stocks Back on the Menu as SCOTUS Rules ATF Can’t Make Laws

The SCOTUS is just responding to my articles saying the government should be completely abolished.

Seriously though, you should probably stock up on bump stocks while they’re temporarily legal.

It’s better to have them and not end up needing them than to end up needing them and not have them.


Only Congress has the authority to expand the machine gun ban to ‘bump stock’ devices, the US Supreme Court ruled on Friday, in a gun rights case technically about bureaucratic overreach.

Bump stocks are an add-on to rifles that allows the shooter to pull the trigger faster and more easily. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) outlawed them in 2018, arguing that they de facto turn rifles into machineguns, which have been restricted since 1934.

“We hold that a semiautomatic rifle equipped with a bump stock is not a ‘machine gun’ because it cannot fire more than one shot ‘by a single function of the trigger,’” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the majority opinion.

Six justices appointed by Republican presidents sided with the plaintiff, Texas gun shop owner Michael Cargill, over the Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland, who were defending the ATF action. The three Democrat-appointed justices dissented.

“The horrible shooting spree in Las Vegas in 2017 did not change the statutory text or its meaning,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in a concurring opinion. “There is a simple remedy for the disparate treatment of bump stocks and machine guns. Congress can amend the law.”

Why doesn’t the Supreme Court go ahead and explain what happened that night in Las Vegas? I’d like to hear their ruling on that. Thus far, not one single government official has attempted to explain it.

It also might be nice to hear how banning machine guns doesn’t violate the US Constitution. That’s never been explained.

It says “shall not be infringed,” which are four very simple words.

This case wasn’t even about gun control, it was about the right of the ATF to make laws.

This is all just nonsense.

Whether it is the ATF or Congress, no one has a right to tell you what guns you can own (other than your dad if you’re a child).

Donald Trump never pushed back on this bump stocks ban and endorsed it. But he never pushed for a bump stocks ban in Israel.
