Bump Stock Ban Dies In
This State's House Subcommittee

By Tom Knighton. January 26th, 2018

While it's understandable that people are freaked out by bump stocks, they've been around for years and we have exactly one instance of anyone using them for anything other than just good, clean fun. While Las Vegas was horrific, it doesn't undermine the positive track record for the blasted things. Too bad it doesn't stop some people from trying to ban them.

In Virginia, new Governor Ralph Northam and his gun control agenda took another hit when a bump stock ban bill died ingloriously in a House subcommittee.

A House subcommittee shot down multiple gun control bills Thursday despite a tear-filled statement from a survivor of last fall's Las Vegas shooting who urged legislators to ban bump stocks.

Cortney Carroll of Henrico County was one of several citizen lobbyists who attended the meeting of the Militia, Police and Public Safety subcommittee. She urged delegates to support HB 41, which aimed to ban the sale of bump stocks, devices that significantly increase the number of rounds that can be fired per minute....

..... Nevermind that a bump stock ban won't stop bump firing. Nevermind that the same thing can be replicated with things like a rubber band or a belt loop. Nevermind that the law would accomplish absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things. .......

What a contrast - compare this with what we reported recently regarding the draconian MA ban on 'bump stocks'. The VA decision no doubt upset the Governor who seems hell bent on attempting more and more "gun control", but fortunately cooler heads seem to have prevailed.
