All gun laws are poor investments. Administration of them costs tens of millions, accomplishes nothing and merely annoys the most lawful, peaceable segment of our population. Bump stocks are the latest of leftist howls heard after every shooting.

“Administration of them costs tens of millions, accomplishes nothing and merely annoys the most lawful, peaceable segment of our population.”
In addition to being self contradictory*, that is the dictionary definition of a successful gun law.
* “Costing tens of millions”, and “accomplishes nothing ” are contradictory clauses. If it costs the American people tens of millions, that fact alone makes it an accomplishment. It accomplishes the redistribution of tens of millions of dollars, while harassing American patriots. What better accomplishment could there be on Earth, for a leftist? The only way it gets better is if they’re wasting far more of our wealth, or killing us en masse.
If we can’t understand the most basic elements of leftist Progressive anti-Americansim, we’ll never get underway toward defeating it. That ship will still be sitting in the dock making launch preparations while the left is doing its final mop-up operations.
As usual, you giants of this blog, Joe, Lyle and Rolf, are correct. Spending the money on this, it cannot be spent on something that might actually improve safety or health, or quality of life, nor can the people whose money it was before taxation spend it on their homes, retirement, or as a legacy to family.
The opportunity cost is therefore vast, and it impoverishes everyone even as it goes down the rathole. Thus impoverished, the meme that people cannot do for themselves without the assistance of the controlling hand of government becomes stronger.
It is misspent, but for the left, it is not wasted.
