There is A Bump Stock in Every Home

On February 28, 2024, the Supreme Court heard arguments in Garland v. Cargill, where a gun shop owner challenged the legality of banned firearm bump stocks. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garland_v._Cargill.

The essence of the justices' agonizing decision is whether firearm bump stock accessories qualify as “illegal” machine guns because they permit rapid fire similar to a machine gun.

This is a no-brainer since the federal government has no authority to ban bump stocks or machine guns in the first place. The Second Amendment prohibits the federal government from infringing on the right to keep ANY type of firearm. The Tenth Amendment prohibits the federal government from exercising any power not granted to it within the Constitution. As Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote, you have the "right to defend yourself using and carrying the same weapons as the government does." https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2024/mar/6/taking-rights-seriously/?utm_source=FFF+Daily&utm_campaign=9c0d422e3a-FFF+Daily+2024-03-07&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1139d80dff-9c0d422e3a-318087135

The fact that the Supreme Court upholds such laws does not change these facts. The courts cannot amend the Constitution nor can bureaucratic rule-making. Their cowardly opinions and interpretations cannot get around the phrase “shall not be infringed.”

So they resort to trickery.

Although the Constitution grants exclusive jurisdiction to the federal government in Washington, DC, and other federal enclaves and possessions, the only way they can exercise jurisdiction within the states is via taxes or the power granted under the Interstate Commerce Clause.

Thus, the conspirators who schemed to outlaw machineguns in the 1934 Gun Control Act asked themselves how they could get around the 2nd Amendment. They decided they could do it by imposing a $200 tax on the registration of machine guns (in the depth of the depression when no one could afford it). This was still an infringement of the right to bear arms.

Later, in 1986, the government conspirators decided they would use the Interstate Commerce Clause to ban all newly manufactured machinegun sales to citizens. By stretching the power of interstate commerce into regulating anything “affecting” commerce – to personal behavior not engaged in commerce or interstate.

Justice Thomas condemned this unconstitutional expansion because it swallows the rest of the Constitution’s prohibitions. See United States v. Alfonso D. Lopez, Jr., 514 U.S. 549 (1995). Also, see my blog at https://www.humancattle.com/newBlogPost-zn-2Ej.

Here’s the ultimate rub:

You don’t need a bump stock to make a semi-automatic weapon fire rapidly. You already have one. It’s called your shoulder.

All you need is a piece of thick foam rubber and an adjustment on the trigger mechanism to reduce the length of the trigger pull. You merely pull the fore end of the rifle against your shoulder and the recoil from a standard buttstock bouncing against the foam will pull your finger against the new hair trigger. Just be sure to take that piece of foam to the local ATF office before you get arrested.

Other means that have been employed are welding the firing pin open and removing the sear and trigger assembly. This converts a semi-auto to fire even faster than a bump stock. The only problem is it will continue to slam fire until the magazine is empty. You can’t stop firing by releasing the trigger, obviously, but people simply load a non-firing dummy cartridge to stop the firing after 3 to 10 shots. Then they cycle the action to rock and roll again. It is highly dangerous to alter a firearm in this manner, and we certainly don’t recommend it. It also violates unconstitutional gun laws.

Aside from the fact that the federal bans on bump stocks and machine guns are unconstitutional, these laws have nothing to do with personal or public safety. The government couldn’t care less about your safety. Gun control is all about making sure you don’t have the means to rebel.

And they will kill you if they even think you have the means to resist. Remember Ruby Ridge, Waco, and the more recent murder of Duncan Lemp? https://www.fff.org/explore-freedom/article/gun-confiscation-laws-put-a-target-on-the-back-of-every-american/

Both the Clinton crime family and the Biden crime family have tried to classify semi-auto firearms as machine guns to ban them too. They claim it is to protect the children from a rash of school shootings. That’s the excuse.

But a crazed individual with a 6-shot revolver can take his time reloading and kill innocent children in a school room while they hide under their desks. Even if you ban all guns and ammunition, how do you stop someone from going into a school room with a homemade flame thrower?

Former Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy provided the answer. Eliminate the useless Department of Education and use their funding to place a policeman in every school across the country.  The reason it hasn’t happened is that preventing school shootings does not advance the disarmament goals of the gun grabbers.

Lastly, anyone who thinks a disarmed citizenry is a good idea doesn’t know the genocidal history of Nazi Germany, Red China, and the Soviet Union. You can go back to your TikTok silliness and wallow in ignorance. Or you can learn about the idiocy of gun control laws by grabbing a copy of my book, Ban Assault Bananas.
