Bump Stocks Classified As Machine Guns

Everyone who has a bump stock has 90 days to turn them in or become a felon.

From Breitbart:

The Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to clarify that bump-stock-type devices-meaning “bump fire” stocks, slide-fire devices, and devices with certain similar characteristics-are “machineguns” as defined by the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 because such devices allow a shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger.

I really don’t care much about bump stocks. Well actually, I do and here’s why.

What I really care about is the protection of constitutional liberty and the ownership of personal property. Bump stocks are just the item du jour being targeted.

Germany’s New .308 Machine Gun

From Small Arms Defense Journal:

The genesis of the resulting HK121/MG5 from the native firm Heckler & Koch came with the German Bundeswehr’s (Armed Forces) “Infantry Soldier of the Future” program, a comprehensive modernization effort concurrent with similar initiatives in the U.S. and other NATO partners.

Striding past another FN design, the commonly fielded MINIMI which is best known as the M249 in U.S. service, HK‘s innovative 5.56mm gun won the competition for Germany’s SAW (squad automatic weapon) role, designated MG4 in logical nomenclature progression. Fielded in 2004 and soon in vicious firefights in Afghanistan, the MG4’s reported reliability, accuracy, soldier-friendliness, and modular adaptability provided additional validation. But with two notable exceptions:

More powerful 7.62 x 51mm NATO ammo was needed for the longer range engagements that characterized the fight against Taliban insurgents.
