Feinstein even praised the NRA for coming forward to review regulations about bump stocks — an accessory device for a semi-automatic rifle that allows it to fire much like a fully automatic. Feinstein did, however, say that a law pertaining to bump stocks must be passed, but that it cannot come as an order from the president.
How she couldn’t is beyond me. Whenever a shooting happens, gun sales increase due to fear of bans and/or increased regulation. With Democrats attempting to lead one thing or another to the guillotine whenever a shooting occurs, it wasn’t hard to figure out what they were going to put on the chopping block next. Feinstein’s current push to get Republicans to pass a law against them proved their fears correct.
She’s correct. No law would have stopped Paddock from obtaining his arsenal. He was, until the shooting occurred, a law-abiding citizen welcome to own as many guns and firearm accessories as he pleased, as is our right. Save for a type of gun ban or restriction on ownership numbers — a statist pipe dream in America — there are no laws we can add to our current set that would stop something like Las Vegas from occurring.
