Trump Directs DOJ to Ban Bump Stocks in Response to Gun Control Outcry

President Donald Trump directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday to finalize plans to ban bump stocks.

The Hill reports that Trump mentioned that the “process” of banning bump stocks began in December.

It was December 28, 2017, when Breitbart News reported that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was accepting public comment on proposed regulatory gun control that would alter the definition of “machinegun” to cover machineguns and non-machineguns, too. This shift allows the ATF to use the National Firearms Act (1934) to control firearm accessories like bump stocks in the same way it controls actual machine guns and devices that convert semiautomatic firearms into machine guns.

Gun control outlet The Trace reported that the public comment period ended with roughly 36,000 comments, of which more than eight out of ten voiced opposition to bump stock gun control.

Yet Trump is supporting regulatory action against the firearm accessories.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins tweeted:

Trump also said he expects regulations banning bump stocks to “be finalized … very soon.”

Bump stocks were not used in the February 14 attack in Florida. Nor were they used in the Texas church attack (November 5, 2017), the Alexandria attack (June 14, 2017), the Orlando attack (June 12, 2016), the San Bernardino attack (December 2, 2015), the Umpqua Community College attack (October 1, 2015), the Lafayette movie theater attack (July 23, 2015), the Chattanooga attack (July 16, 2015), the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal attack (Jun 17, 2015), the Santa Barbara attack (May 23, 2014), the Fort Hood attack (April 2, 2014), the D.C. Navy Yard attack (September 16, 2013), the Aurora movie theater attack (July 20, 2012), the Gabby Giffords (January 8, 2011) attack, or the Virginia Tech attack (April 16, 2007), among others.

In fact, the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas attack is the only high profile public attack in which a bump stock was used criminally.

Hillary Thinks She Got Away With 1 Massive Scandal, But The DOJ Has A Nasty Surprise For Her

If you’ve been watching the mainstream press froth at the mouth over the nonsense investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, you’re not alone.

Feels a little like you’re in bizarro world, doesn’t it?

An inordinate amount of time, resources, and taxpayer dollars has been devoted to get to the bottom of a big pile of unsubstantiated gossip.

Gee, I wonder why President Donald Trump feels it’s so imperative to drain the swamp so that things can finally get done?

The ridiculous waste of time is incredibly off putting, and those feelings are exacerbated by real live issues that get brushed aside as if they’re insignificant.

For instance, the Uranium One deal has stunk to high heaven ever since it was announced.

Why haven’t lawmakers been inspired to follow the pungent scent?

Answers to that vary, but none of them inspire warm and fuzzy feelings.

Surprisingly, it seems that there’s finally a glimmer of hope that lawmakers will soon have a little more pep in their step in regards to our nation being pilfered of vast quantities of uranium for unclear reasons.

The Independent Journal Review shares the scoop:

The U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly open to appointing a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal and alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, a potential bombshell development in the unfolding scandal.

In a DOJ letter obtained by Fox News, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote to GOP lawmakers that Attorney General Jeff Sessions “has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters.

While feelings of ‘what took you so long’ are perfectly normal, we’ll instead focus on the positives.

The stench has finally become unbearable for folks at the DoJ.

“The DOJ will reportedly wait for a review to be completed by the inspector general before deciding what ‘additional steps’ may need to be taken regarding the Uranium One case.

Sessions previously admitted his past comments on Clinton would likely put his ‘objectivity’ into question, meaning a special counsel would likely be required if a formal investigation into the controversial Uranium One deal is launched.”

Can we expect something to happen overnight?

Not at all, but this is a big step towards the curtain being lifted.

Hopefully, that’s leading to some sleepless nights for those that insist there’s nothing to see here…
