Gunmakers have the successor to the bump stock lined up

As gun companies continue to innovate, gun control advocates fear an end run around longstanding regulations.

Like bump stocks, these other technologies are primarily found on gun ranges and YouTube videos. They’re designed to skirt existing gun laws — to deliver the same deadly effect as a banned weapon, but with a technical change that makes them legal to own, carry, and sell.

“What the industry is doing is it’s sitting down and it’s saying … we’re going to devise any possible way to work around this legally,” Chipman, now a senior policy advisor at the advocacy group Giffords Law Center, told ThinkProgress. “And so what you have is devices that are legal. They are lawful, but they are awful.”

The National Rifle Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry’s largest trade group, did not return requests for comment.

Small weapons that do huge damage
Weapons like machine guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles and shotguns are regulated under the National Firearms Act of 1934 and subsequent amendments. To own one of those weapons, a civilian has to go through a lengthy approval process and pay a special tax. The job of deciding whether a gun falls under NFA’s restrictions falls to ATF.

4. I am not a gun nut

but I have been around them all my life. Even before the issue of bumpstocks was brought to public attention I could have told you how to accomplish the exact same thing with items in your desk drawer. Search Youtube for DIY or homemade bump stock. There are no shortages on how to do it. Time and attention would be better spent on other aspects of gun control.
