Budget amendment on bump stocks (One Response)

Will, 

I’ve read the language of the bump stock amendment out of the House. First, I’d like to say I believe the commonwealth should ban bump stocks and any other device that accomplishes the same thing. However, there is language in there that’s far too vague and onerous. It says…

“or whoever modifies any rifle, shotgun or firearm with the intent to increase its rate of discharge, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison by not less than 3 nor more than 20 years”

So if a gun is malfunctioning and needs a spring replaced to operate correctly, that could be perceived as increasing the rate of fire. 

Please remember that anyone who owns a gun legally in the state has a license.
