How To Bypass Trump's Bump Stock Ban With a Rubber Band!

Despite Trump's popularity among his base, he did piss off a lot of his constituents with his recent executive action that effectively bans bump stocks.

Via CNN:
The Trump administration rolled out a new federal regulation Tuesday officially banning bump-fire stocks. 
Those who possess the devices, which make it easier to fire rounds from a semi-automatic weapon by harnessing the gun's recoil to "bump" the trigger faster, will have 90 days to turn in or otherwise destroy them from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register -- likely this Friday -- according to senior DOJ officials. 
Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people. 
Officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had previously concluded bump stocks were merely a gun accessory or firearm part, not subject to federal regulation, but President Donald Trump called on the Justice Department to outlaw the devices soon after the tragedy.

Those of us who actually know a thing or two about firearms realize that this measure really is just something to make liberals happy, but at the end of the day will accomplish nothing.

Case in point, did you know you can effectively do the same thing a bump stock does with a few standard rubber bands? Don't believe me? Check this out:



So what now Mr. President? Are you going to issue an executive order to ban rubber bands?

This whole issue is ridiculous! Banning accessories, semi-automatic rifles, certain magazines, etc. won't stop murder! Murder is already illegal!

What we need in this country is more people concealed carrying. Having more good guys and gals with guns on the streets will be way more effective at stopping active shooters than these bullshit feel good measures.
