I am actually a member of GOAL (great organization) and knew about this, but like most conservatives, I have to work for a living, and secondly, it is all about show as is most gun legislation. It is kabuki theater, doesn’t affect me.
I didn’t even know bump stocks existed, even though I knew the concept of bump firing and had tried it semi-successfully once, but didn’t want to really make it work since nobody wants to attract unwanted attention at a gun range, right?
Thing is, I see this largely as virtue signalling by liberals who want to show they are doing something about “gun violence” (even though they aren’t, which is fine too because their concept of “gun violence” and mine are quite different) with no impact on my right to own and carry a gun.
To me, this is like a hearing to pass legislation on whether guns should be allowed to be black in color or not, or whether it should be allowed to have a bayonet mount.
