Bump Stock Owners: What You Need to Know After ATF Ruling

Recommended Posts

So the shoe finally dropped. As you likely know by now, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) recently announced its amended ruling on bump stock-type devices. Following President Trump’s demands, the ATF ruled that all bump stocks now fall within the definition of “machinegun” under federal law.

In short, following the Las Vegas shooting, Trump decided these devices needed to go, so he demanded ATF change its ruling. Meanwhile, the NRA, while publicly stating its disappointment in the ban, mostly maintained support of the president.

Conversely, the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC), with Tim Harmsen of Military Arms Channel fame as plaintiff, filed suit. Lead counsel in this suit includes Joshua Prince and Adam Kraut, known civil rights attorneys. But only time will tell if FPC and its allies can successfully get the ruling overturned.

In the meantime, the ruling now requires all device owners to destroy their devices or abandon them at a local ATF office. If choosing to destroy the device, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure the device is rendered incapable of being readily restored to its intended function, according to ATF.

For anyone wishing to abandon their device, you can visit Local ATF Offices to find a location near you. For those planning to destroy their device, see the list of destruction instruction links, by manufacturer, below:

ATF Bump Stock Destruction Information

All bump stock owners have 90 days from the date of publication to comply by either abandoning or destroying their device. Failure to do so would put owners in direct violation of federal law.

The ATF has compiled a lot of information regarding the new ruling; for more, visit atf.gov.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect.....

In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
