Read below and do above.

Like I said, IMPORTANT!

ACTION ITEM - BATFE REVIEWING BUMP STOCKS FOR POSSIBLE BAN

Bump stocks had previously been reviewed by BATFE under the Obama administration and they concluded that the device was NOT a "machine gun."

We agree.

However, after the massacre in Las Vegas, there was the usual push to "do something," and bump stocks were in the spotlight.

There was pressure for BATFE to review their previous ruling and to ban bump stocks.

In the middle of the Christmas/New Years holiday the comment period has begun for BATFE reviewing the bump stock ruling and we need to get out comments telling BATFE to leave bump stocks alone.

Whether you like the concept of bump stocks or not, we need to stand together and protect our rights.  An attack on one firearm or firearm accessory is an attack on all of them and all of us.

No sacrificial lamb will ever satiate the gun grabbers.  Every time they take something from us, nothing is given in return and they come back more empowered to take the next item, whatever that might be.

Why does someone "need" a bump stock?  For a free people it's not about needs, but about wants.  Don't let the anti-rights people divide us, ever.  They absolutely love it when one group of gun owners says another group of gun owners doesn't "need" something, such as back in 1993 when many hunters were saying no one needed an AR-15.  We were divided and we got a 10 year "assault weapon" ban.

Here is the website to go to:

https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=ATF_FRDOC_0001-0035

Click the "Comment Now!" button on the top right corner of the page.

This was my comment.  Feel free to use it as is or to modify it as you see fit:

-

It is important that rules are made based on logic, reason, facts, and law, not emotion, political correctness, or politics.

Bump stocks were already examined by the BATFE and determined NOT to be machine guns.

That was clearly the correct answer.  A semi-automatic firearm equipped with a bump stock still fires only one round with each pull of the trigger.

A person can bump fire a semi-automatic firearm with nothing more than their bare hands and the proper technique.  Others can work the trigger in a conventional fashion, but very fast, and achieve a bump stock rate-of-fire.

As long as one pull of the trigger fires one shot on a semi-automatic firearm, no accessory can be legitimately classified as a "machine gun."

Virginia Balance of Power Could Have Been Decided by Just One Gun Owner
Ammoland Inc. Posted on December 20, 2017 by David Codrea

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Judges award Republican 1 vote, causing a tie in House race that will decide balance of power,” The Virginia Pilot reported Wednesday in a breaking development on a political contest that now comes down to random chance. So based on the luck of the draw, Democrats and Republicans in the House of Delegates could be split 50-50, ending nearly 18 years of Republican dominance.

“The general election took place on November 7, 2017,” Ballotpedia explains. “Unofficial recount results on December 19 showed Shelly Simonds (D) winning the District 94 race by one vote. Yancey held a 10-vote lead heading into the recount.

“On December 20, a panel of judges found that a disqualified ballot should have counted for Yancey, resulting in a tied race,” the election analysis continued. “According to Virginia law, the winner of a tied race is determined by lot, which means a random chance event such as a coin flip or drawing straws.”

Actually, it will be a draw placing names in canisters.

Virginia Citizens Defense League

    “A recount has now tied control of the Virginia House of Delegates BY ONE VOTE (I never want to hear any gun owner saying their vote doesn't count),” Virginia Citizens Defense League noted in a Wednesday alert. “That single vote has made VCDL's job of both protecting and advancing gun rights in Virginia MUCH more difficult and MUCH more important.”

That’s because, per VCDL, “There are already bills pre-filed that will:

        ban anything that makes a semi-automatic firearm fire faster than an “unaided” shooter can fire that same firearm. Existing devices are not grandfathered
        allow localities to prohibit firearms at protests and demonstrations
        ban firearms at preschools and child daycare centers
        make it illegal for a person open carrying to consume alcohol, even a glass of wine with a meal
        ban online firearms training

    “Those bills are just the tip of the iceberg,” VCDL warns. “Universal background checks, ‘assault weapon’ bans, magazine capacity limitations, bans on carry in libraries and other local government buildings, and much more are on the way.”

And it’s not like Virginia gun owners didn’t know there was a difference between the Republican and the Democrat.

Yancey was rated 93% by the National Rifle Association and 85% by VCDL. Simonds, on the other hand, was endorsed by Gabby Giffords’ PAC.

At this writing, the name draw has not yet happened – when it does, this will be updated. The Democrats have said they “are assessing all legal options.” [See update at end of article.]

There will be time afterward to analyze what Virginia Republicans did wrong to make the fire go out of the bellies of so many voters, but the takeaway from this (and from the Gillespie race) is it’s not because the Republicans sounded too much like Donald Trump.  Just the opposite, those coming across as “moderates”  hardly inspire voters tired of establishment platitudes, and just a quick glance at Yancey’s campaign website “issues” page shows he didn’t even mention the two big Trump draws, immigration and guns.

That said, VCDL is right saying they “never want to hear any gun owner saying their vote doesn't count.”

For those inclined to dismiss that with a defiant “Molon Labe!” it’s on them to explain why anyone who can’t even be bothered to vote should be believed when they tell us they’re ready to see what that would really entail through to the end. They’re called “last resorts” because it’s presumed all other means and remedies provided in the system bequeathed us by the Founders have been exhausted.

UPDATE:

    “State elections board to meet next Wednesday to hold random drawing to pick winner in tied House race”

]Unicorn Froot Loops flavored like 'magic cupcakes' will debut in March 2018
By Taylor Rock | The Daily Meal

In September, Kellogg’s Unicorn Froot Loops debuted on shelves in the U.K. Now the pastel product is making its way across the pond to stores in the U.S.

The American version will consist of red, blue and purple loops with white “crunchlets” and a “magic cupcake” flavor, as opposed to the yellow, purple and red loops offered in the U.K.

The Lisa Frank-esque unicorn cereal box made an appearance at the opening of the new Kellogg’s Café located at the perimeter of Union Square Park in New York City. The new 5,000-square-foot space features a cereal-inspired menu with several items curated by "Laguna Beach" star Lauren Conrad, and a DIY cereal bar with over 40 different toppings.
