Supreme Court Divided on Bump Stock Ban: Texas Gun Store Owner Challenges

The Supreme Court is in a split debate over the federal bump stock ban challenged by a Texas gun store owner. Dive into the controversy surrounding firearm accessories and the interpretation of federal law.

The ongoing debate at the Supreme Court regarding the federal bump stock ban challenged by a Texas gun store owner. The Trump administration had initially banned bump stocks following the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas, but the ban was later put on hold. The central issue revolves around whether bump stocks transform a firearm into a machine gun, with proponents arguing that there is still manual action involved in firing.

David Prince, owner of Eagle Gun Range, provided insights into how bump stocks function mechanically, emphasizing that they do not convert a rifle into an automatic weapon. The case questions the authority of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to regulate gun accessories like bump stocks.

The outcome of this case could have significant implications for gun regulations and the interpretation of existing laws. The Supreme Court is expected to deliver its ruling later this summer, with potential repercussions for owners of bump stocks following the ban.
