    Supreme Court leaves Trump bump stock ban in place

    Supreme Court leaves Trump bump stock ban in place



    3/2/20
    The Supreme Court left in place on Monday President Donald Trump's ban on bump stocks, turning away an appeal from owners of the device and gun rights groups. Last year, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives banned bump stock devices -- attachments that essentially allow shooters to fire semiautomatic rifles continuously with one pull of the trigger. The devices came under scrutiny after the October 2017 massacre in Las Vegas where a shooter opened fire from his hotel suite onto outdoor concertgoers with rifles fitted with bump stocks, killing 58 people and wounding others. Last spring, the justices denied a request to temporarily block the administration's rule -- which took effect in April 2019 -- while the issue played out in lower courts. It was the third time the court was asked to issue such an order.
    Seems the NRA didn't stuff enough pockets.

    Bump stocks have always been a gimmick and didnít gain any real attention until the Las Vegas shooting. The same affect can be created using other common items, so the impact of a ban is minimal at best for those who seek the simulation of automatic fire.

    Pressure to do *something* after the Las Vegas shooting. The shooter used bump stocks.

    I have never had or used a bump stock...never saw the need or use in them; but the ban itself is pretty much useless and feel good action.

    Why spend money on an expensive gimmick when you can simply use this....

    Well, not being the President I canít say for sure what his motivation was, but I would guess because it would be the least controversial action his administration could take and still show they were doing something.
