Media, stop reporting on this without context. You know as well as I do - and I've been hitting this frequently - Republicans want to throw bump stocks under the bus to show they're 'doing something'. Bump stocks are the mere hangnail of the firearm regulation/2nd Amendment issue.
Shame on the lefties who will drop talking about gun control in the aftermath of a bump stock ban. Keep pushing. You cannot let the Right use this as some sort of positive vibe for '18. This is more a clear signal of their intransigence, than their empathy.
