The ruling says nothing about binary triggers. They still aren't machineguns.
The ATF site has instruction for how to destroy bumpstocks. They're very specific down to individual models and manufacturers. They listed like 15 different bumpstocks an not one page about binary triggers.
The other way to "destroy" bump stocks would be to fusion weld the action in numerous ways making the stock solid, but you didn't see that offered did you? Courts have banned some people from drunk driving their cars, but I've not heard of the court ordering their car be sawed in two pieces?
When the 94 ban passed, existing CAR/M4 type stocks were glued in place with black epoxy, turning them into fixed length, with no issue.
ATF only cautions that other methods may not meet their (unspecified) criteria for bumpstock deactivation -oops, I meant
"They came for bump stocks, and I didn't speak up, because I didn't own a bump stock...."
If this doesn't sound familiar, do yourself a favor with some reading.
another very curious point was the initial era of AR pistols
most guys here probably were not paying attention years ago however they started up as XM177 clones in the late 70s
There was at least one outfit that was knocking out CAR stocks that were solid die cast units in collapsed configuaration
We were building them up with 10 & 11.5" barrels. I did two of these back then
Then the bureau swapped panties, decided they were actually SBRs
yeah under Republican control
Even running a CAR buffer tube sans stock was bad
That's all changed and it happened under Obama
No, don't like the last President, actually detest him but it was
under his administration Slide Fires were legalized and Trumps where that is trying to be reversed
That's the way it almost always works out
