Ok lets get a grip on the above….
Donald Trump didn’t say he’d ban the auto rifle firing devices….
He merely asked for a write up for banning the devices….
Let me remind people out there…
Donald Trump changes his mind on MOST major issues….
He’s the guy who said he’d sign anything on immigration and was the guy to deep six any kind of a deal last week…….
Having Jeff Sessions do the writing assure Trump that he has a guy who isn’t gonna produce ANYTHING that will cause Trump heartburn….
Of course if the whole gun control thing dies out in a month or two?
Who thinks Sessions isn’t gonna put Trump’s request in an in an inactive file in the basement of the Justice building filed under ‘do something…but make sure it’s NOTHING?’……
President Trump announced Tuesday afternoon that he has signed a memorandum directing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to propose regulations to ban “bump stocks” and other devices that turn semiautomatic firearms into “machine guns.”
The device was used by the shooter who opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas in October, killing dozens and immediately prompting calls for lawmakers or the administration to ban such devices through legislation or regulations. At the time, the White House and the National Rifle Association made clear that they were open to the idea. The Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced in December that they had begun the process to possibly change federal regulations and outlaw bump stocks, which involves posting a public notice and soliciting comments from those with an interest. As gun-control issues are once again being discussed nationally, following a mass shooting at a high school in Florida last week, Trump was pushed to act.
“I expect that these critical regulations will be finalized … very soon,” the president said during a medal ceremony at the White House on Tuesday afternoon….
Under pressure to actually produce?
Look for a finished product that has enough holes in it to drive cement truck thru…
