I need to give President Trump some credit for getting behind the need to ban "bump stocks' as legal accessories to assault rifles. Considering the nature of the Political Right at its core, this was totally unexpected and is quite a surprise.

It may be just a step, a small step, yes, to limiting the body count of such carnage as we experienced last year in Las Vegas.
And no, gun enthusiasts, nobody is threatening to take your gun or deny you your 2nd Amendment rights. This is just a common sense action in face of a preventable tragedy.
Very good. I am glad you are able to put aside your disagreement with Trump and praise him for a change.

I will grant you that it could conceivably prevent a few accidental deaths, for the idiots that get a huge charge out of spraying bullets everywhere but a target WILL care that it is illegal. Of course, one could also say that such a death is more an "evolution in action" thing than a tragedy anyway...
