I am assuming you mean "Bump Stocks", not "Gun Stocks".

Much ado about nothing. All bump stocks do is make it harder to hit your target.We would probably be better off if all wannabe mass killers used them. Fewer people would get hit.

Now, if that's all they did, then why are they being used?  Why did the Vegas shooter use one?   If he wanted to miss his targets, whey didn't he just stay home?

Is there another tool that can hit 480 targets (killing 58) in less than 10 minutes from almost 5 football fields away?

You should be glad he had a bump stock. If he had actually aimed his rifle, the body count could have been much higher.

This is what happens when the uninformed just listen to the hysterical bullshit put out by other uninformed people. You focus on the wrong things.

I'm not glad he had access to any type of gun, at all.

He started by aiming at individuals. Then he fired randomly into the crowd in bursts. 43% of 1100 rounds hit a target.

But I think my question is valid. What other tool can be used to shoot 50 people in one minute...for 10 minutes...From 500 yards away?

Many. Given the density of the crowd it wouldn't be too difficult to run up casualties and Obs can either back me up on this or set me straight but I would imagine some of those rounds struck more than one person.

There is no doubt of that. Given the density of the crowd, multiple hits from one projectile would be almost impossible to avoid.

This particular shooting was actually unique because of the conditions under which it took place. He had  a venue with tens of thousands of targets. Her had an unobstructed view of the target area. It is probably a good thing the idiot decided to "spray" with that bump stock rather than work the kill zone methodically and deliberately.

Ask him.

Senseless response, when he was extremely successful in what he set out to do.  He knew what he was doing with the bump stock.  It's obvious these should be banned.  Your solution, do nothing, has been in effect for over a decade now, and it goes nowhere.  And still, after just a few minutes with the NRA, Trump reversed course and nixed his own timid plan.  The problem is guns, not mental health.  How many murders were conducted with switch blades last year?  Can you buy one at Dick's Sporting Goods?   ;D

What I am focused on is that EVERYTHING that happens in Vegas is on camera. The only place that there are no cameras are in the bathrooms.

So, no one noticed this idiot bringing in an arsenal through the hotel and on the elevators up to his room??  No one?? Really??

I have a really hard time believing that.
All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

He should never have had the arsenal to begin with.  No one should.  That's what you refuse to accept. You cannot pass out cocaine and heroin to everybody and blame them later for becoming addicts.

No he didn't. I have no intention of pointing out any of his strategic or tactical errors on an internet board, but had he been smarter he could have reaped far more casualties.

I'm just curious, has it ever occurred to any of you that by your heightened demonization  of the AR15 you encourage these sick F#@!s to want to use one. Your ignorance and theirs directs them to choose this weapon. I still consider myself a novice when it comes to firearm knowledge and even I know there are other weapons out there that could be far more devastating in most of these attacks.

How moronic. Yes you can. No one is deprived of their individual choice.

That implies personal responsibility.

The Left will never accept that. It is much easier to blame the tool.
