Would love to see them allowed for hog hunting. Our legislators are probably too scared of the other side to do it, but I keep pumping emails at my representatives.

And just because it is illegal at the federal level obviously means nothing (just ask the 17 states and DC who have legalized marijuana).

If anyone agrees, please contact your state senator and representative.

If you don't, no worries.

Thanks.

Are they illegal? I thought BATFE got slapped on that ban by courts?

Are they illegal to shoot hogs with in Texas? Thought you could kill hogs with anything you could think of...?

I don't have anything against bumpstocks. But I personally wouldn't use one for hunting. Even hogs.

Don't you think if you needed more firepower than a regular AR would give, then a good binary trigger would give much better aimed, controlled fire?

Not that I don't feel you shouldn't have and shoot what you want, I'm just wondering why. I bet you'd kill more without it.

Yep. The bump stock ban was thrown out. They're legal unless there's a state law I'm unaware of.

If you need a bump stock to shoot hogs, you don’t know how to shoot hogs.

The courts are all over the place it appears on the matter. We did get a recent victory in one appeals court.

but if they are no good for hog hunting I will take the word of the guys that have used them.

Every time I stalk up on a group/herd/sounder I only seem to get a couple. Maybe I need to go with some pros to learn how to better do it

What right to they have to outlaw them? Where do they get their authority to act?

Mr. Trump decided he could ban them and so they figured the only way they could do it was say they are "machine guns" - here's a quick article - people lost thousands and thousands of dollars because of this triple-unconstitutional action (2nd amendment, 5th amendment, ex post facto).

Bump stocks are not good for hunting because they tend to be spray and pray and spray and pray is notoriously inefficient for downing hogs succinctly.

My aim is notoriously inefficient for downing hogs succinctly - at least in large numbers roflmao

Thanks!

Bump stocks are useless; they don't have any purpose, sporting or otherwise. All they do is lead people to further scrutinize ARs. Forced reset triggers & binary triggers are going to do the same thing. These exist for one purpose and it is to mimick a fully automatic rifle. I have zero problem with these being regulated by the NFA.

Sweet Jesus, WTH is wrong with you guys? You might as well as agree to bend over and tap your toes and let Uncle Joe show you were his baby monster goes,,, You good with registering guns to? I mean for Christ’s sake it’s for the better good right? Hell while we’re at it let’s give back all our semi autos this year to, next year it’s your single shots and the following they might remove your butt plug.. Is that where we draw the line? Can’t loose those plugs cousin Eddy muyloco


FYI I think their junk but it’s the principal of the matter with me,

You are part of the problem.

I don't have either of those items, but I'd damm sure fight for everyone's freedom to own and use them.

You may want to educate yourself on "mimick a fully automatic rifle" as well. They don't, in any capacity do that. If you'd ever fired anything full auto, you'd know better.

That may be true, but that is something you can work on. A bump stock will just make you less succinct and cost you more money.

"Useless" is a value statement and is, in fact, untrue for many people. Bumpstocks are great for turning ammunition into smoke, noise, and fun.
