As many of our clients and viewers are aware, Firearms Industry Consulting Group® (FICG®) a division of Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C., has submitted substantial comments in opposition to rulemaking entered into by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and spearheaded the opposition to ATF-41P. Unfortunately, as it appears that ATF intends to move forward expeditiously with a proposed rule in relation to bump stocks (and potentially other firearm accessories which purportedly permit or result in higher cyclic rates by the operator), we’re asking for your support so that we can prepare a comprehensive comment with appropriate expert reports, so that if ATF enacts any form of regulation, we will be able to challenge it in court.
Although we do not yet have the text of any proposed rule, we already know that ATF intends to propose a rule, which will ban, at a minimum, bump stocks. There are also concerns, depending on the language proposed by ATF, whether it could impact competition triggers and other tangentially related parts and accessories. Hence, it is imperative that we begin retaining experts to provide expert opinion on functionality of bump stocks and other parts and accessories, which could be included in any proposed rule. We also must begin formulating all arguments in opposition so that we can ensure that all issues can later be raised in court, if necessary.
Thus, we have set up a page on our website – Challenging Bump Stock Rulemaking – where we have further information about the issue. Unfortunately, we can’t do this without your support. Unlike the Government, we don’t have unlimited funds at our disposal.

Sorry, I agree with you 98% of the time. I feel this time I have to disagree. Machine guns have been outlawed for many, many year and that’s what Bump stocks do. They have no place in our society same as Bonnie & Cllyde.
