Bump Stock Ban Fails Big Time, the Numbers Are Humiliating

Published

If Democrats want a sneak preview of how any attempted “mandatory gun buyback” in America will go down, all they need to do is take a look at the total failure of the recent bump stock ban.

After a bump stock was used in the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, the devices were eventually made illegal. The final ban came in December 2018.

Thanks to a Freedom of Information request from The Washington Times, we can finally see how effective a government-mandated ban on a firearm device really is.

And the results aren’t pretty for anyone wanting to confiscate guns, magazines or firearm accessories from Americans.

From the date of the ban to April 2019, only 582 bump stocks were handed over to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. An additional 98 were secured as evidence.

According to an ATF spokeswoman, the bump stocks held for evidence were from people who informed the agency that they wanted the devices back in the event the ban is reversed.

The Trump administration estimated that there were up to 520,000 bump stocks in the United States before the ban. The devices handed over to the feds accounts for a minuscule portion of that — only a fraction of a percentage point.

Although some bump stocks held by companies were destroyed in large numbers, it appears those in civilian hands are largely remaining there.

A similar measure in New Jersey aimed at large magazines was met with the same level of obedience; people refused to turn the banned objects in. Some even sealed them up in walls or under flooring in the hopes that if they ever needed them, the magazines would be accessible.

That state’s attempt to limit the Second Amendment saw an even more embarrassing defeat than the federal bump stock ban, with not a single magazine handed in to authorities.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with gun enthusiasts in our nation, whose culture was founded in the fires of the American Revolutionary War.

Any talk of gun confiscation, being increasingly marketed as a “mandatory gun buyback” by Democrats, is often met with promises of resistance from citizens and even law enforcement.

Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is a frequent critic of so-called assault rifles, promising to rip them from law-abiding Americans’ hands in his own sick twist on confiscation. Not everyone is on board with this, and even survivors from the Columbine High School shooting are showing up to challenge him.

O’Rourke isn’t alone in his hatred for Americans’ gun rights.

Some of his 2020 competition, like Sen. Kamala Harris, are just as rabid when it comes to disarming citizens. Harris admits her plan to defang the nation would bypass any semblance of due process and come as an executive order.

The fallout from the bump stock ban brings up a question that many on the left need to answer before they continue their assault on gun rights: What happens when Americans refuse to obey one of these laws?

Door-to-door searches would prove to be a bloody venture, and many in law enforcement would likely refuse to comply with an order such as that.

With many firearms and accessories not existing on a registry, it would make hunting them down that much harder. There’s no quicker way to turn the population against you than to invade their homes.

It’s no secret that Americans are not about to let politicians in Washington, D.C. dictate what their Second Amendment rights look like. How many more bans do leaders need to create before that finally sinks in?

      The Bill of Rights is sacrosanct!
      The Constitution would not have been approved without it.

      most importantly it must be accepted by the people .

      Except, with Democrats. They would put activist judges in the Supreme Court to do away with the Second Amendment. She would have them declare it was unconstitutional or have them change the wording of the amendment to whatever they think the amendment says. Chelsea said that would be the first business she would take care of, during a fundraiser, shortly before the election. The Dems would end the Constitution as the law of the land. It would be government given rights and not God given rights.

    If Kameltoe Harris actually became president and followed through with her threat, it would be the bloodiest time in American history.

  • Harold says:

    The only things that will ever “sink in” to a politician’s head are money, power, and political agenda.

  • AndyZ says:

    If some one takes it ot its conclusion by being caught with one and sent to trial ti would be interesting to see how the establishment would get around at least 3 constitutional issues Like the ex-post facto law just compensation etc

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Leftists in a panic, posted, GUN FREE ZONE signs as protection from criminals that never would have turned in their guns anyway.

  • Backgammon says:

    What don’t they understand about “Shall not be infringed”! Thankfully I live in a state that does not require a conceal carry permit or open carry.

  • Red Devil 5th Inf. Div. VN. says:

    I look for the Democrats to lose the House and most of their Senate seats next election, they have proven that they are not willing to do anything for the good of their districts, all they have been concentrating on is the impeachment of Trump because they know that they can’t beat him. Besides, a lot of them will be getting indicted very soon, the deep state is about to collapse.

    When the Constatution was drawn up people had Muskets and bow and arrows they say and Loggers had Mules and ox and cross cut saws and Axs but now have Power saws and bull dozers and big Log Trucks with long trailors and big Tractors and Skidders and one that goes to the Tree and Cuts the whole tree down and laid it on the ground and a lodder that pulls the tree into another frame and make the Cut the length that they want to and cut limbs off all in one move too and loads the Trailer so I guess they want them to go back to the old Way Period too
