Hidden Secret in Bump Stock Bill

Hidden Secret in Bump Stock Bill

In the wake of the tragic Las Vegas shooting, it was only a matter of time before un-constitutional legislation was officially proposed in Congress… and now it’s here my friend. But there is a hidden agenda…

The bipartisan bill to restrict so-called “bump stock” devices has been introduced in the House, and is being sponsored by both Florida Republican Carlos Curbelo and Massachusetts Democrat Seth Moulton.

Lawmakers are trying to secretly hurry this proposal through Congress, and unlike those in the congress, concerned citizens have looked into the proposal line-by-line, and as usual, found some disturbing facts that the bill’s sponsors don’t want you to know.

Even though I do not own any bump stocks myself, nor would I waste my money on such a stupid an useless accessory, I am weary of the legislative action wasting their time on illegal and useless laws.  

Incredibly, the bill would not only make bump-stock accessories against the law to buy, but it would also make them illegal to merely possessIn other words, somebody who bought a bump-fire stock years ago — completely legally — and tossed it into the back of their gun safe would face five years in prison if this bill became law.

How would the government enforce such a ban? The only answer is, the illegal searches a seizures of lawful gun owners and confiscation of previously-legal items. This is once again a violation of the Constitution.

“Are the manufacturers going to be compelled by the government to turn over lists of customers who legally acquired [products] that were declared by the regulatory authority to be legal?” asked Congressman Thomas Massie of Kentucky.  “This could set the precedent for confiscation if you’re retroactively banning these things,” he continued, according to Reason Magazine.

Speaking of retroactively banning things, as I said, doing so is also a violation of the U.S. Constitution.  But by now most people know that the Constitution has become irrelevant in Congress.  Anyway just for the record, Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution declares: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” Period… In other words, the Constitution prohibits lawmakers from making something illegal and then going after people who engaged in the act previously, when it was still legal. It seems highly likely that this my friend is the real agenda for the proposed “bump stock” ban and it would do exactly that.  Even the much-maligned “assault weapons ban” of the Clinton era had a grandfather clause that allowed legal owners to keep firearms they already possessed. Shockingly, this new bill includes no such provision.

There are more problems, as well. The wording of the bill is so vague that it could apply to a wide variety of common gun accessories and gunsmithing services. Most troubling, it could, (and if it could, it would,) conceivably be used as a “backdoor” confiscation scheme against millions of legal firearm owners.

The bill’s terminology targets “any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semi-automatic rifle.” Think about that for a moment.  Rifle accessories such as lighter trigger kits and heavier recoil springs are just two of the many common off-the-shelf products that could suddenly be illegal if the bill passes. Each carrying a 5 year sentence.  

What have I said in the past?  “Laws are no longer to prevent crime, laws are to create criminals”.

“There are a hundred ways to make a semiautomatic firearm fire more quickly, and there is no way to prevent them,” Rep. Massie explained. “You can use common household items. There is an industry that takes your off-the-shelf firearm and improves the trigger so that you can be more accurate and shoot it faster,” the libertarian-leaning lawmaker continued. “Those implements aren’t designed to simulate full auto fire, but they could be read into the language of that bill.”

THE BOTTOM LINE: Take a look at a previous article I published that blows most of the so-called gun safety laws away, mostly because anti-American lawmakers know absolutely nothing about guns.  Or’ the U.S. Constitution.

Anti-Constitutional America-hating politicians know that they can’t directly go after firearms — at least not yet anyway — so they’re targeting a myriad of accessories and adjustments that even casual gun owners often use on their rifles.
Congress is trying to pass this deeply flawed bill before Americans have a chance to read and understand it… and that should set off alarm bells for every person who values self-defense and the Second Amendment.  Read the text of the bill here.

Write your Representatives here, and tell them to vote ‘no’ on this anti-American unconstitutional bill, and tell them that you vote too!

Thanks for listening my friend. Now go do the right thing, pray and fight for truth and freedom.
