NRA calls for review of bump stock rules - CNNPolitics

Quote:
"The National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law," the NRA said in a statement. "The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations."
Seems the NRA is Shocked. SHOCKED they tell us.

The NRA would rather make concessions like, "Those devices not allowed by existing laws", than have Congress debate fresh laws that might introduce more background checks or limit magazine capacity.

I know it's pointless but this is still shocking:

Wait....Luxembourg has a GDP of nearly $100,000 per capita?

What kind of really gross domestic products are they making? Solid gold commodes?

Police are staying very tightlipped on the subject, but this one was just plain odd. No motive, and a seemingly random target. I'm inclined to agree with their assessment that he had some secret life we don't know about yet. Given his old life in finance and new one in gambling I'll wild-guess it was organized crime related.

I think it’s about time America started seriously considering licensing and registration of motor vehicles.

Poes law!
Conservatrolls on twitter are arguing that liberals are hypocrites because they refuse to call for car control.

With reports of fake guns, this is as much a suicide via cop attempt as it is a terrorist attack. No one purposefully gets the attention of cops while brandishing fake guns unless they want to get shot.

Shootings at churches in Fresno and near San Antonio. The latter has resulted in at least fifteen confirmed deaths.

As always, it is too soon to talk about any sort of meaningful gun legislation or do anything more than send thoughts and prayers.

False alarm everyone!

We thought it might've been a Muslim terrorist attack that demands action against their repulsive ideology of violence and hate, but reports are coming in that actually it was merely another unfortunate instance of committing mass gun murder happening to a white man.

Why are white male gun owners victimized by becoming mass murderers? We don't know, and we certainly don't want to find out.
