President Trump Says He Will ‘Write Out’ Bump Stocks Without Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C.-(Ammoland.com)- In a press conference today, President Donald Trump said that, “I don’t care of Congress does it or not, I’m writing [so-called ‘bump stocks’] out myself.” In response to these troubling statements, constitutional rights advocacy organizations Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) and Firearms Policy Foundation (FPF) have announced that they have retained attorneys Joshua Prince and Adam Kraut of the Pennsylvania-based Firearms Industry Consulting Group, a division of Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C., to submit their legal opposition to any rulemaking and begin preparing for litigation.

Last month, FPC submitted a legal letter of opposition to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ advanced noticed of proposed rulemaking on the “Application of the Definition of Machinegun to Bump Fire Stocks and Other Similar Devices.” In its comments, FPC explained that the “DOJ and BATFE clearly lack the statutory authority to re-define the targeted devices as ‘machineguns’,” and that these ATF-approved and legally-possessed devices could not be regulated firearms under the statutes.

FPC and FPF oppose restrictions on the acquisition, possession, carry, transportation, and use of semi-automatic firearms, ammunition, and firearm parts and accessories by law-abiding people.

“We will use every resource and remedy available to us in our ongoing defense of the Constitution, the rights it protects, and millions of law-abiding American people” said FPC President Brandon Combs. “While we would prefer to block any executive action or rulemaking that would ban currently-legal firearms parts before it becomes law, we would not hesitate to file a federal lawsuit to protect the rights and legal personal property of gun owners if that’s what it takes.”

Those who wish to support FPC and FPF’s efforts to oppose executive branch gun control and support legal action a can make tax-deductible donation at www.defendgunparts.com. Individuals can become a member of FPC at www.firearmspolicy.org/join.

That said — there are videos — that show how you do not, repeat NOT, have to pull the trigger more than once to have the gun empty the clip. Before the Obama administration (between 1934 and the Obama administration) this was the definition of an automatic weapon. Think with your brain — do… Read more »

@JM: First how many people work Fusion GPS, The Clintons, Bamas, Holder, the DOJ, FBI & CIA moles, the DNC, RINOs and their foolishly dumba$$ idiotic antifa followers. That would be a… heck just break out the gallows and a Tesla powered chair with a steel seat. Maybe a industrial wood chipper or junkyard crusher (cruel & unusual punishment, yes) does anyone here care however. Gather them all up. Tell them they can either rest their heads or or take a load off… forever. Would you pull switch????? Would you??? We’d need a lottery to take turns.; )))))))) That’s a… Read more »

That I don’t know. My buddy, who works in the IT industry and moderates a technical forum for his company, says some are paid employees and some are part time who are paid by the response generated or by the day. They go from site to site trying to cause as much trouble as they can. A perfect example would be “Jake” the other day and “Noah”. A few months ago we had “XX”. The more we engage the more they make and the more it takes away from actual discussion among ourselves so we can move on which I… Read more »

Folks: Trolls appear to have invaded Ammoland. They are paid, piecemeal, to constantly egg on and always reply to anyone who replies. They will keep you on the hook forever, it’s money in their pockets. My suggestion, call them out as trolls and don’t keep replying. Let them talk to an empty room. We do very well discussing things among ourselves without including them and having them make money off us.

Hi Vann. you keep calling me a troll. And a paid one. I’m not. this assertion that I am being paid is just silly. You keep making it, saying i’m being paid by soros or bloomberg or whatever. i just happen to have a different opinion to you. there is no point discussing topics with someone who just agrees with you. but that seems to be your preference.

@Vanns, Yes, they are annoying at most, and crowd out more interesting conversation. Sometimes I just have to challenge their logicless, emotion based, AntiCivil Rights arguments but all that does is get them paid. Even responding with a one word epithetical, direct response gets them paid. I suggest that if one need respond, please, address a non troll and write about them without mentioning their name. I am calling it the Starve the Trolls Out Program or STOP.

Ole Pres. Trump IS saying he will ban bumpstocks, he said “they’re gone, they’re out of here!”.
My commie state was able to get them to drop this BS legislation and then Mr. Trump opens up (his mouth like NRA did) to darn quickly.

@DaveBrown: Did you practice rambling before you wrote that disjointed piece or did it just come to you all at once. There are so many things that are wrong it would take me equally as long to correct all the “mistakes” you made so I’ll just dismiss your entire comment out of hand.

Folks, Bump Stocks need to be Bumped, and as Trump likes to say, You Know It. Me, I picked up number of Arm Braces for some AKs, MACs, and a couple of Sig things they made for a period of time. I can put many a pistol into the Sig thing. Anyway, they were approved and they say they cannot be shoulder as that would make them a SBR. I get it, and I figured The ATF would say, sorry they are no longer legal, thus I own a number of them. Mainly for fun, but they make a great… Read more »

You sir are a total idiot, they were talking about protecting GOD given rights of the individual from a government of the people and by the people that would turn into a government just as as bad as the one they fought, the type of weapon that they used was mostly Brown Bessemer muskets which was STANDARD MILITARY ISSUE at that time. Also there was a small amount of Pennsylvania long rifles in use and the British were deathly afraid of these because they were rifled instead of smooth bore so they were more accurate and had a longer range… Read more »

If that were the case,the founders couldn’t envision advances in technology as the Girdoni,or Puckle gun in their time. Then we better turn off these computers and grab our parchment,ink wells and quills and get to writing.

Are we REAL Americans of every race, color & creed ready… because we ALL should be. I’ve been ready for a very longtime. The Marxists are going for broke. Everything is on the table. Assassination, War, World War, Direct & Indirect Killings and of course treason as usual. We need to start with Hussein Obama and work our way down and back.

ARGH – ‘bump stocks’ do NOT make a semi-automatic rifle (or pistol) into a fully automatic device. DJT has said this (incorrectly) on numerous occasions. Someone needs to sit down with him and ‘splain that what makes a weapons into full or select fire is the innards – yes someone can file down parts (illegally) to make a semi-auto (more or less) functionally full auto but the reliability of such modifications is iffy at best. The legal definition of a semi-auto – one shot per trigger pull does not change via using ANY of the bump firing techniques out there.… Read more »

Call the White House and say NO to any restrictions that would limit legal, after market products including but not limited to bump fire stocks, after market triggers etc. Here’s the phone number:

GDubb, you are playing right into the Liberal Democrats (the gun grabbers) hands. From 1934, until the Obama administration, it was illegal, by administrative law, for gun smiths, or private individuals, to modify semi-automatic guns, to make them into automatic guns (with out getting prior approval from the ATF and paying a huge, per year, per gun, tax). Then the Obama (without a Congressional law change — like DACA) changed the regulatory law. Why did Obama do this — nobody knows for sure — but probably for the same reason he did fast and furious Trump sent an executive order… Read more »

I hate to say it, but DJT is failing us big time with this stance on gun parts. Makes me wonder WTF he’s thinking. It can’t be good for us. Much like when Nikki Haley took the SC flag down and the libtards took advantage, removing scary historical monuments, this is a road we must not travel if we are to retain our 2A in ALL its glory.

Congress writes law, the president can issue a executive order that effects branches of the government but like Obummer he can’t issue executive law,it will take time but will be over turned by the courts.

As per the Constitution; NO INFRINGEMENT on the possession or ownership of any weapon. Legal law abiding Citizens have the RIGHT to own the same weaponry as the Military.
NO MORE INFRINGEMENT of LEGAL LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Respecting the 2A!!! That’s who I voted for President!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now where are those cowardly NRA Board Members with their comment (or apology). I the President is willing to rescind so should they.

My SINCERE apologies but this article is written in a way to mislead. I’ve listened to the speech and “That IS NOT the President Voted for!” he’s costing conservative the 2018 ans 2020 elections if they still matter.
We have been BETRAYED by both the current Admin, the NRA and LEOs like the ones in FL.

What is it that they do not get about the 2A. There should not be any further infringements, because it is not theirs to infringe.

This article is sheepdip!
