Bump stock’ ban opposed by Gun Owners of America, despite NRA stance.

“Gun Owners of America opposes a ban on bump stocks,” Executive Director Erich Pratt said in a statement, noting that the Obama administration’s ATF allowed the devices “to help gun owners with disabilities fire their weapons.”

Pratt added, “Any type of ban will be ignored by criminals and only serve to disarm honest citizens.” He said it’s “sad to see some Republicans quickly call for a vote on gun control.” …

But GOA, which on its website features a quote from ex-GOP Rep. Ron Paul calling the group the only “no compromise” gun lobby, tweeted, “No law — including a ‘bump stock’ ban — would’ve stopped the Las Vegas shooting.”

While some congressional Republicans are on board with a “bump stock” review, others are not.

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., called the issue a distraction.

“Proposed ‘bump fire stock’ ban is a red herring that would lead to a ban of other firearms and accessories,” he tweeted.
