NRA leader weighs in on bump stocks, tells ATF to "do its job"

Written by  CBS News

National Rifle Association Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday that in the wake of the deadly Las Vegas shooting, the ATF (the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) needs to now "look at" current laws on bump stock laws and "do its job" amid calls for stronger gun legislation.

Transcript: NRA's Wayne LaPierre on "Face the Nation"

"On bump stocks, let me say this, the fact is that the Obama administration a couple years ago legalized a device, their ATF, that fuzzed the line between semiautomatics and fully automatics. And if we're able to fuzz that line, all semiautomatics are at risk," said LaPierre.

He addd,"If you fuzz the line, they're all at risk. And we're not going to let that happen."

Numerous lawmakers, both Democratic and Republican, have made calls for the rapid-fire devices to be regulated and many calling for their banning altogether.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said it was up to House Speaker Paul Ryan to bring legislation to the floor that bans bump stocks, something Ryan himself said he was open to considering.

However, Ryan called for more information on the devices before making regulatory decisions.

Wayne La Pierre had better wake up on this one if he's telling the BATF to restrict bump stocks. By their own guidelines, the BATF has concluded that the bump stock DOES NOT violate any of their regulations regarding semi-auto firearms. I have a copy of their letter and you can get that same copy from Slide Fire Solutions, manufacturer of the bump stock. Why is it that the rabid left wing idiots and their media hounds always want to attack the pencils for the misspelled words?

Has Rockefeller allopathic medicine acquired the leadership of the "gun control" movement? Attacking the symptom does not alleviate the underlying causation. Chicago-Cook County demonstrates that gun-suppression does not hinder murderers who prefer guns.
Nor does killing off cancer patients with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery remove the disturbed persons who prefer guns to kill their perceived enemies. It only proves that ONCOLOGY is a farce. FARCE.
As are gun-control laws.
