Gun reformers search for the next bump stock
BY MIKE LILLIS - 11/15/17 06:46 AM EST
On Wednesday, the ... group founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) will release a report detailing nine products all commercially available under current federal law the advocates say are designed specifically to circumvent long-established gun checks and therefore pose a threat to public safety.
The products singled out by the group are a combination of obscure accessories and military-style firearms that, like bump stocks, are hardly household names. They include binary triggers, which modify firearms so one round is fired with the pull of the trigger, and another upon the triggers release; trigger cranks, which allow shooters to fire more rapidly with the turn of a handle; and incendiary rounds, which ignite when they hit a target.
The list also features modern AR- and AK-style pistols, ... and .50-caliber rifles, ...
Pay attention to how they show .50 BMG in item 7, followed by:
Cue the .50 caliber muzzleloader, which delivers a particularly lethal .50 caliber round. This weapon is designed with a built-in device to suppress its sound. If any other firearm were built with such a device, it would be subject to the NFA as a silencer. But since this device is designed to suppress the sound of something that is exempt from federal firearms laws, it is not considered a silencer and not subject to the NFA. In fact, it is not subject to any laws at all and can be bought online.
The report is attached. and is also available at the link in the first quote.
