How many people complied with a Denver police notice to surrender bump stocks? Not a single one.

Zero.

That’s how many gun owners accepted an invitation from the Denver Police Department to surrender bump stocks, Denverite reported. The device increases the rate of fire for semi-automatic weapons to nearly that of fully-automatic firearms.

Bump stocks were used in the Las Vegas massacre in October that left 58 dead and injured hundreds.

The Denver City Council voted to ban bump stocks in late January, a move the Associated Press called “largely symbolic.” Previously, Denver banned the types of semi-automatic rifles that can be modified with bump stocks. The city council also voted that, “in most cases,” it is illegal for residents to own magazines “that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition.”

What did the notice say?
Still, the police department sent a politely-worded “suggestion” to gun owners in February.

“If Denver residents are in possession of a bump stock, and would like to turn-in their bump stock to the Denver Police Department, they can do so at any Denver Police Station,” the notice reportedly read.

Denver is one of the first U.S. cities to introduce a bump stock ban.

You do know what's going to happen.

Someone's going to bring theirs to the range and someone else will call the police or the police will have undercovers lurking and then on the way out/off site, they will be stopped by the police and then searched and arrested for felonious possession.

That's always the opinion of people who have never done anything illegal. I don't care what city you live in there is cocaine, cockfights, prostitution, gambling, and any number of other illegal vices. You really think that people are too dumb to hide a piece of plastic the size of a bread box? They're just going to disappear into the hills. Of course one or two dummies will get caught but it's the exception that proves the rule.

It wasn't that long ago that illegal full auto AKs were cheaper than legit imports. They're out there. I've seen a few. I've held a live grenade and my dad still has the advert the Air Force put out in Vietnam where they would ship your M16 to your door for $100 under the table. There are so many illegal weapons already here. But they're in the hands of old guys who tuck them in the attic. You'll never see them.

Don't expect to buy more of them.

BUY?? I can MAKE them with a few minutes time with easily sourced and purchased 'replacement' parts...but they are of little value to most any shooter .
