ATF Bans Bump Stocks

quote [ The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) released text of a final rule banning bump stock devices. The rule is notable because bump stocks were used in a recent high-profile mass shooting, and because it is a major regulatory action in an administration known for deregulation. ]

I don't personally want one but I don't like this.

It’s not a fallacy to say, on the basis of evidence, that a particular outcome is the predictable result of taking steps in the advocated direction. In other words, when we can show that in multiple examples, gun controls have moved to the point of making legal gun ownership and carry so tricky as to be akin to impossible, we can’t logically dismiss the "slippery slope" as a fallacy. Multiple politicions have said that they want an outright ban. That is the point of incremental changes. Also there is shifting baselines. And this ban on bump stocks comes from Don Cheetos administration.
