After it was determined that the Las Vegas coward used bump fire stocks on his rifles to murder innocent Americans, the media proceeded to muddy the water in terms of putting out very inaccurate data regarding the specifics of bump fire stocks and how they are or aren’t related to fully automatic rifles.
This video is not intended to defend nor to degrade owners of bump fire units. (Except the Las Vegas shooter. He is an A-hole.) It is simply meant to educate people on what a bump fire device is and how it works. It’s also meant to dispel the myth that a bump fire stock transforms an AR-15 into a super weapon. The bump fire is no magic pill or silver bullet.
NOTE: Modifying a legal rifle with a bump fire system is legal to do, to own, and to shoot. It does not create a fully automatic rifle by definition, its action, or by the ATF’s ruling.
As many in the news media continue to get it wrong, we continue to try to spread truth. An AR-15 modified to fire with a bump fire stock is not and never is considered a fully automatic rifle per the BATFE.
