Pandora’s Box Opened

A new lawsuit against the manufacturers of guns used in the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting argues that AR-15-style rifles are illegal because they are compatible with bump stocks, which increase their rate of fire. The plaintiffs, parents of a woman who was murdered in the Las Vegas massacre, argue that bump stocks like the ones used in that attack convert semi-automatic rifles into illegal machine guns—a position that has been endorsed by the Trump administration. Therefore, they argue, AR-15s are themselves illegal, since the federal definition of machine guns includes firearms that “can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.”

    Interesting take on a situation about which we know, NOTHING! I am sure they were able to “sweep up” a huge number of projectiles off the ground since the distance fired was even in excess of the accurate range of the presumed weapon used. There are enough accounts from those located near the assault that bring to question the number and source of the rounds fired. There is little to no information from the person “first on the scene” and he seems to reside in Mexico, now, or some place south of the border. I am not ready to blame Pres. Trump or Barr for this problem. There are only so many little brush fires one of two people can stamp out. Thus far Pres. Trump has done “orders of magnitude” more for those of us that consider ourselves Americans than any of those that preceded them back to, at least, Reagan. The remainder are easily fit into the descriptor Communist/Socialist “pussies”.

    The mistake Trump made was to give the Left a “Win” with Bumpstocks.
    You cannot give the radical Left 1 inch.

      You’ll not get an argument from me but he is the best leader we have had in a very long time. We need to suggest and support him for what he is attempting to do. Those that have been elected to “Represent” us are the “oppressors. There may be a few good ones but they are easily counted on two hands at the most.

  3. The real problem is that a fully automatic machine gun is NOT really illegal. To actually say it is is crazy talk! (NRA compromised brainwashing)

    “… shall not be infringed”. Period! End of story!

    “No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.” — Federalist #78

    The idea to ask permission of OUR government to carry ANY gun as WE please is complete insanity!

    “The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.” — Noah Webster

    “and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops”

    Our founders believed in “gun control” -- “We the People” in control of Our guns.

    We must always outgun Our government!

    Any and All gun laws, including permits, outside Our second amendment are Not Constitutional and very evil!

    Any and All governments can not legally or righteously override the 1st Law of Nature -- the Duty of Self-Preservation -- a God-given gift!

    Amen to that Thomas. Jews in Germany obeyed every “law” to which they were subjected. That didn’t help them at all! Neither will it help any of us!

      How do we know?
      Did the Jews, the christians and all those who did not make Hitlers grade or have guns to retaliate lose their eternal lives?
      i mean it is our eternal lives that we are most concerned with, right?

  5. Exring says:

    “Follower”: I prefer to NOT measurer myself and my family and friends according to any “Hitler” (Pres. Trump is NOT a Hitler). My belief in Jesus and the Lord will do what has to be done on that account. We are here and OUR care is OUR responsibility. I think Rabbi Will and my minister will agree.

    • a follower says:

      Not quite sure what you mean. was simply responding to a comment made by “Rabbi” will.
      i did not say Trump was Hitler. Was simply pointing out that our eternal lives should be our first and our foremost thought.

      • Exring says:

        I was simply making a preemptive comment before someone suggested that we are being “ruled” by such a person. I do believe that our eternal lives are going to be based on what we do and believe. God did put us here with tools to care for ourselves and expects us to do so.

        • a follower says:

          Something to think about,
          God did not put Adam and Eve here with tools. The Tools came by may of man’s fall from grace.
          So what did He have in mind?

  6. Rabbi Will says:

    How do we know? Excellent question! The answer you are looking for requires more than a comment to a friend’s posted article. . If you really want to learn 7042026922.

      Thank you,
      i do believe i know the answer, based on the context. Asking questions so others will begin considering these same things.
      Pandora’s box was opened quite some time ago, perhaps we can now begin to see and admit the errors of our ways?
