All I have heard is, for the first time I can recall, the NRA is willing to negotiate on them. Weird huh?

Not weird at all, but smart. Their position might be to support the bump stock ban but continue to oppose a long gun ban like Demand letter 3.

There should be no compromise on weapons. The only law needed is the one that "prevents" misuse of a weapon, under penalty of death.

When you fire the rifle, recoil will move the gun rearward, and by balancing the forward force exerted, against the pull of the finger on the trigger, you can make essentially the same series of events that a bump stock does. Btw, were do you think the idea for a bump stock came from??

The idea is old. The concept can be home built with fair ease. Not sure making them illegal will help matters much..

But notice he's having to shoot from the hip. This severely limits accuracy.
THIS is use of a bump stock:

I get it. I also understand how difficult they would be to confiscate in this day we live in. I also am away of many who could home build such a device at home.

On some fire arms a piece of rubber inserted behind the trigger of a semi auto, or foam rubber, can be used to get bump fire as well, from the shoulder.

That just won't fly--you make no provision for self-defense. The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with hunting.
