It’s Not Just About Bump Stocks. The Curbelo-Moulton Bill (H.R.3999) Seeks to Effectively Ban Most Semiautomatic Rifles

While many in the firearm community have controversially withdrawn their support of bump fire stock possession and other devices designed to simulate a fully automatic rate of fire due to the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, this new bill featuring poorly worded legislation seeks to indirectly implement a blanket ban of nearly every semi-automatic rifle system currently in existence.

While the full text of the proposed bill can be found here, the portion that raises the most concern involves the following verbiage:

“To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle but does not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun, and for other purposes.”

The language of this paragraph extends far beyond bump fire stocks, or even other “controversial” bump fire devices such as rubber bands, pieces of string, and belt loops. The vast majority of factory and aftermarket components currently available for semiautomatic rifle platforms are designed to improve performance of the rifle system, allowing the shooter to more effectively place rounds on target in a shorter time span (therefore increasing the effective rate of fire of the rifle).

Possession of virtually all magazines (regardless of capacity), aftermarket triggers, buffers, buffer springs, adjustable gas blocks, and a variety of other components would be immediately rendered illegal through the far-reaching and poorly worded language of this bill. There is no grandfather clause, with only a ninety-day amnesty period offered prior to enactment of the act. After that amnesty period nearly every owner of a semiautomatic rifle with a magazine of any capacity would be immediately classified as a criminal.

    the nine republicans moderates who are behind this reckless bill are really democrats and they all must be shoved down the toilet and if this bill goes anywhere it must go into the toilet, these are turncoats and they must be primaried out for once an for all and there careers ended permanently. Screw them and any law these fool communists pass, never turn in any weapon these lawless agents of Satan pass no matter what and under any threat of lawless acts of aggression against the citizenry. these fools should be locked up for treason. If this bill did ever reach the desk of Trump and he signed it, then it would be his doom. never obey any law folks these Bolsheviks try to enact, they will get theirs at some pint in time.
