It will really have no impact on us here in the People's Republic of NJ. But it still important to have our voices heard regarding the forthcoming Bump Stock Ban the government will attempt to put in place.
ATF IS REQUIRED BY LAW TO READ AND REPLY TO EVERY COMMENT YOU SUBMIT
Ok, third time is a charm. We are going to repeat our previous success and flood the ATF with comments for their “Proposed Rule-Making Re-Bump Stock Type Devices.” THEY ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO READ AND REPLY TO EVERY COMMENT YOU SUBMIT. You may remember anons did this previously with other ATF rules changes under Obama, specifically, when they closed the trust “loop-hole” for registering NFA devices in non-NFA friendly states, and attempted to ban Green Tip ammo. We delayed the trust rule by one year, and they actually took some of our advise and removed the LEO signature requirement, and we stopped the Green Tip ammo ban altogether with 80,000 comments. This is proven to work so it is worth our time.

Make a comment regarding why you do not approve of the rules change. Be polite, be specific, and its best if you make it custom, and as long as possible so they have to read the whole thing. I will provide suggestions in the posts below as to what you can say, or what to bring up in your comments.
Questions and points to put in your letter to the ATF:
-How can the ATF define “Single function of the trigger” to include a finger “bumping” off the trigger repeatedly and therefore functioning the trigger each time?
-What will happen to all the current bump stocks in circulation? What about their owners?
-How does ATF plan to prevent criminals such as Stephen Paddock from making bump stocks from readily available parts at Home Depot for under $35 dollars, such at a metal bar and two screws with washers connected to a firearms grip and stock?
-Will ATF consider a metal bar with two screws and washers to be a machine gun if also present in the same dwelling as a semi automatic firearm, since they may be “readily restored to shoot” as a machine gun in ATF's determination?
-Will holes drilled in a pistol grip or stock be considered a machine gun in the same manner ATF considers holes drilled in certain areas of a receiver to be machine guns?
-Does ATF plan to regulate an individuals finger which can bump a trigger rapidly without assistance from bump stock type devices?
-Will this rule regulate belt loops, which can be “readily restored to shoot,” a semi automatic firearm in the same way a bump stock does. Will a belt loop be on the same level as a shoe string which ATF has classified as a machine gun in the past?
-Will wearing pants with belt loops be illegal while operating a semi automatic firearm under this rule?
-Does ATF or Congress plan on allowing citizens a legal method to register their previously owned bump stocks on the NFA registry?
-Will the act of bump firing a firearm be considered “making a machine gun?'
