    From the article...

    The fact of the matter is that a lot of people are just done. They’re done with giving ground, even if the law says they should. They’re willing to risk the consequences of noncompliance because they’re sick and tired of gun grabbers trying to take their property.

    Add in the fact that there’s no compensation for a device they paid good money for, and guess what you get?

    That’s right. A replay of the noncompliance for the NY SAFE Act.

    That's what happens when we are fed up with government dictating our lives. Good for them!

    I thought there was supposed to be a law you can not take personal property without just compensation.
    I would think they disassemble fairly easy. Remove spring, but solid pvc.(wild guess as I have never handled one)
    I bet most people could hit multiple targets beyond 50 yds faster semi auto then with bump stock, and use 20% as much ammo

    Maybe there only was 2?

    It is Vermont we are talking about, right?

    Two turned in....... Thats 2 more than I thought.

    It's been a while, but the old time Vermonters I used to know back in the day were real stand up men. Not the imported POS's that seem to be increasingly infesting the place now.

    A sharp rise in boating mishaps has also been noted this year in Vermont...

    That is correct. They are effectively an adult toy.
    The Vegas event....... i.e spraying / hosing down an area is about all they are good for ( unfortunately ).

    I don't know...I watched hickok45 test one on an AK74...it seemed pretty effective in his hands.

    Not very many people have turned intheir 10+ mags in California. It doesn't help there is a court case pending.

    If they really want the guns and mags off the streets they offer market value.

    I forgot where I read it, but someone had taken the position things would have been much worse had he not had one. I can believe that. :(

    If they ever make anything illegal that I already own, it’s still going to be mine, and won’t go anywhere.

    Not standing for that crap.

    Sir,
    I remember that video. I think he was testing a Bumpski stock and he did run it well.
    An AK 74 is a very formidable weapon.
    To clarify, I would say the same to most people regarding a class 3 select fire rifle.
    My opinion is unless you are using it for suppressive fire purposes, it is wasting ammunition.
    If you make a solid hit on someone with one 556 or 545 round it's probably unlikely you will need a second shot on him. We are talking rifle rounds....... Not sub calibers.

    Just my opinion

    Naw, it's OK now.
    The ANC South African government is taking all the land with no compensation so that must make it ok here too.......
    Please read with all the sarcasm you can muster.

    Don't worry, they will find some schmuck and hammer the hell out of him as an example. After all, it is what the left does.

    What? You mean HF goes up when you aim? Who knew?

    Probably also depends on who is doing the aiming. :)

    That's probably 10% true. The other 90% of the story is that most people who think they aren't aiming as well as the 10 percenters really aren't aiming at all.

    Which still comes back to who is doing the aiming. ;)
