The Commonwealth of Massachusetts just banned “any device for a weapon that increases the rate of fire achievable with such weapon by using energy from the recoil of such weapon to generate a reciprocating action that facilitates repeated activation of the trigger.”

Say goodbye to the Beretta 92 and every other semiauto firearm. Oh, and your fingers are against the law, too.

Yep, this will eventually be used to push you guys back to revolvers.
Double action revolvers can be bump fired in the same manner. You just have to push harder.

Joe Kennedy and John Kerry will surely come quickly to our aid and resolve this matter... surely Mitt Romney is on our side, too, right?!? Right? Ummmm....

Now we get to see what California and Illinois do to pile on!

California Penal Code 16930 already bans a “multiburst trigger activator”, meaning either of the following:
(a) A device designed or redesigned to be attached to a semiautomatic firearm, which allows the firearm to discharge two or more shots in a burst by activating the device.
(b) A manual or power-driven trigger activating device constructed and designed so that when attached to a semiautomatic firearm it increases the rate of fire of that firearm.​
Note that Benicio Del Toro’s right index finger, as deployed in the foregoing preview of Sicario 2: Soldato, satisfies clause (b).

To be clear, is it possession of said device, or use of said device on a handgun.

Owners of fingers and even rubber band manufacturers and the offices and newspapers who have rubber bands want to know...

Thankfully a finger is not a device. I believe we can extrapolate from commonwealth v. Davis 10 Mass. App. Ct. 190 wherein the court ruled that teeth or any other body part were not a weapon that if the legislature intended to include body parts they would have explicitly done so. We’re good until they figure that out.

They originally tried to include preban magazines in that ban as well, but they couldn’t get that clause through.

The most ridiculous part is that you can still buy a legit machine gun with a license, but a bump fire stock gets you a maximum of life in Prison.

This state is wicked retahdid.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Has Banned....
The fools can ban whatever they want to.
If I ever have a need to go there, I will just hire an expendable liberal and send it in my place!

Massachusetts was arguably the birthplace of America; then they let the Kennedys and their ilk in, and not long after it became the cancer it is today. Let that sink in.

The mewling *** dumpster the Democrats trotted out after the SOTU address last night is a prime example.
