Rockford Scanner™: The President Bans Bump Stocks, Owners Must Destroy Them Or Turn Over To The ATF



Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


NOTE: Winnebago County Sheriff Office (Or any local police departments) RARELY releases any press releases, so do not expect an update on this story. Sorry, but this is what happens when they encrypted.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration Tuesday banned bump stocks, the firearm attachments that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire like machine guns and were used during the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The regulation gives gun owners until late March to turn in or destroy the devices. After that, it will be illegal to possess them under the same federal laws that prohibit machine guns.

Bump stocks became a focal point of the gun control debate after they were used in October 2017 when a man opened fire from his Las Vegas hotel suite into a crowd at a country music concert, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more.

The regulation was signed Tuesday by Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. It will take effect 90 days after it is published in the Federal Register, which is expected to happen Friday.

Bump stock owners will be required to either destroy them or surrender them to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a senior Justice Department official said.

It is impossible to know just how many bump stocks Americans own because the devices aren’t traceable, but ATF has estimated that between 280,000 and about 520,000 have been sold since 2010.

Investigators expect most owners will comply with the new rule and ATF will take action against those who don’t, the official said. But there’s no surefire way to know whether owners are complying. The official briefed reporters on condition of anonymity.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Donald Trump was “once again fulfilling a promise he made to the American people.” Trump had promised the ban in March, saying the devices “turn legal weapons into illegal machines.”

Shortly afterward, the Justice Department started the process of amending firearms regulations to define bump stocks as machine guns. ATF received about 186,000 comments on the proposal.

The amended regulations reverse a 2010 ATF decision that found bump stocks did not amount to machine guns and could not be regulated unless Congress changed existing firearms law or passed a new one. In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, some members of Congress sought to ban bump stocks, but no legislation was passed. At least 10 states have sought their own restrictions.

The amended rule was met almost immediately with resistance from gun rights advocates, including Gun Owners of America, which said it would file a lawsuit against the Justice Department and ATF to protect gun owners from “unconstitutional regulations.”

“These regulations implicate Second Amendment rights, and courts should be highly suspect when an agency changes its ‘interpretation’ of a statute in order to impair the exercise of enumerated constitutional rights,” the organization’s executive director, Erich Pratt, said.

The Justice Department official said the government will fight any legal challenge that may be brought

The National Rifle Association called on the Justice Department to provide amnesty for gun owners who already have bump stocks.

“We are disappointed that this final rule fails to address the thousands of law-abiding Americans who relied on prior ATF determinations when lawfully acquiring these devices,” said spokeswoman Jennifer Baker.

Police said the gunman in the Las Vegas massacre, Stephen Paddock, fired for more than 10 minutes using multiple weapons outfitted with target scopes and bump stocks. Paddock fatally shot himself after the shooting. There were 23 assault-style weapons, including 14 fitted with rapid-fire “bump stock” devices, strewn about his 32nd-floor hotel suite at the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel.

The largest manufacturer of bump stocks, Slide Fire Solutions, announced in April that it would stop taking orders and shut down its website. The remaining stock of the devices is now being sold by another company, RW Arms, based in Fort Worth, Texas.

CHICAGO – Illinois State Police (ISP) officials announce the arrest of Jose Martinez Gomez, 33 YOA, of Chicago, for Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (Class X Felony).

On December 17, 2018, as part of an ongoing narcotics investigation, ISP officers conducting surveillance on a truck tractor semi-trailer in Chicago observed the truck tractor semi-trailer travel from Chicago to Westmont, and pull into mechanic shop, which appeared to be closed. Hours later, officers observed a black minivan arrive at the shop and a male driver exit the minivan and enter the shop, before eventually returning to the minivan with items in hand. The male driver then proceeded to drive away from the shop in the minivan. Officers followed both vehicles and conducted a traffic stop on the black minivan. During the traffic stop, the driver of the van was identified as Jose Martinez Gomez, 33 YOA, of Chicago. Officers observed Martinez Gomez with a knife between his legs and duct taped bricks in boxes in the middle of the van. The bricks in the boxes tested positive for cocaine and had a total approximate weight of 70 Kilos. Martinez Gomez was taken into custody.

The DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office approved one charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (Class X Felony) against Martinez Gomez. Martinez Gomez attended a bond hearing this morning where bond was set at $2.5 Million (10% to apply).
