Bump Stock Ban; Gun Control in MA - This Week on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk

It’s the Department of Justice and ATF’s final ruling on bump stocks, the real impact gun control laws have had in Massachusetts, the ever-increasing danger of bears, new optics, and more, this Sunday on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk®, the original nationally-syndicated talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

The DOJ and BATFE issued a final ruling on Tuesday declaring bump stocks to be machine guns, and thus illegal. The ruling goes into effect in 90 days. Before that happens,  the U.S. Government has to face a lawsuit challenging the authority to ban bump stocks, and the legality of banning bump stocks. Joshua Prince, one of the attorneys bringing the lawsuit, talks with Tom this Sunday about the many issues at hand, and what bump stock owners should do for now.

Recently, Massachusetts government officials rolled out reports on the effectiveness on state gun control laws as it pertains to firearms safety, criminal use of firearms, and suicide. GOAL’s Jim Wallace joins Tom with the real story about what’s happening in the state. Read more at https://bit.ly/2UWXaxx.
