    Or , if you do, don't do things that bring you to the attention of people in authority.

    A cautionary tale.

    " The U.S. Justice Department reclassified bump stocks in December 2018 to fall in line with its definition of “machine gun,” basically making the ownership of the devices illegal. The Florida Legislature passed a law that same year making ownership of bump stocks a third-degree felony. "


    I either missed that or forgot it.

    “1,000 boolits in 11 minutes....” yeah, that’s likely.

    Uh, we know the vegas shooter fired 1,049 rounds, and we know how long the shooting went on for. Exactly what part are you questioning?

    That's only 1.5 rounds per second.

    My paintball marker is set to max out at 13 rounds per second. I hit the limiter sometimes. Hit the limiter every time if it's set to 10 rounds per second.

    Any novice can shoot an AR at 10 rounds a second. Try it. Clear a 30 round mag in 3 seconds.

    And they call this the gunshine state.

    Jerry Miculek is a pre-86 machine gun.

    A well trained shooter with a semiauto rifle, does not need those stupid things!

    Those things sound dangerous. And they're illegal.
    I would NEVER do anything illegal.

    While I don't agree with the legislation, I do agree with your opinion.

    As weird as it sounds, Mr Vegas Looney probably saved some of his intended victims by missing due to bump stocks.

    But try making sense to a politician.
