I own a small but successful gun dealership in Wisconsin. Prior to the Vegas shooting we had sold a total of 1 (not including the 2 my brother and I had bought). In the year afterwards when there was talk of a ban we sold 36 which is a large amount for a shop of our size.
Like the 1994 “assault weapons” ban, telling people they may not be able to get something anymore fuels their desire for it even if they previously didn’t want it. I can testify to that first hand.
As of this post there is no federal ban on bump stocks, but some cities and states individually have banned them.
With about $6 worth of wood from a lumber store. Or a quick and dirty one using rubber bands or a belt loop. Can anyone answer if the places that banned bump stocks included homemade ones in the law?
And did they just ban the stocks or did they also ban the technique of bump firing? With a little practice one can shoot a semi-auto rifle like full auto no bump stock needed. Do those ban laws include that as well anyone know?
