Candidate for Georgia Governor is Giving Away Bump Stock Like One Used in Las Vegas Shooting

A candidate for governor in Georgia is giving away a bump stock just weeks after a Las Vegas gunman killed 58 people after using a similar device to turn his semi-automatic rifle into an automatic weapon.

“Blaming guns or bump stocks for the actions of a lunatic, is the same as blaming McDonald’s for heart disease,” wrote Republican State Senator and gubernatorial candidate Michael Williams in a statement announcing the raffle Monday. “An attack on bump stocks is an attack on the Second Amendment.”


Bump stocks, which fit around the grip and stock of the gun, allow the recoil from the weapon to continuously pull the trigger, modifying semi-automatic weapons to become fully automatic.

Williams said he was holding the draw “in solidarity with gun owners across the nation.”


“The tragedy in Las Vegas broke my heart, but any talk of banning or regulating bump stocks is merely cheap political lip service from career politicians,” he said. “In reality, the bump stock is the new, shiny object politicians are using to deceive voters into believing they are taking action against gun violence.”

After the Las Vegas shooting, police found 12 bump stocks in the Mandalay Bay hotel room of shooter Stephen Paddock. Days later Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein and Republican House Representative Carlos Curbelo introduced bills to Congress with the identical goal of banning bump stocks.

Well , he doesn't realize it but it could be true that mc Donald's food could be responsibile for heart disease, heart attacks. But what would he know about nutrition. His education probably consists of news about bump stocks and related weaponry. He's a good old boy who loves his guns.

Anyway, he's an idiot.

Bump stocks don't make a fun fully automatic.
This is why we cannot have a conversation on guns. Because of people who are so afraid of guns, make outrageous claims.

Why does a private citizen need anything that will make a weapon even come close to being fully automatic?

Stop being so passive aggressive Iggy. How about you provide an actual legit source, not one that fits your gun fears?

You don't know squat about guns, I wouldn't be calling anyone an idiot.

Did you actually listen to Paddock firing? If so, what did it sound like to you?
