The reversal of the bump stock ban is straight out of Project 2025 and their intention to weaken the FBI

To weaken and dismantle the FBI Project 2025 has a complete overhaul in place of which nullifying the ability of the ATF director to ban items effectively neuters that organization.

To quote from chapter 17 of the plan:

Align the FBI’s placement within the department and the federal
government with its law enforcement and national security
purposes. DOJ veterans often opine that the FBI views itself as an
independent agency—accountable to no one and on par with the Attorney
General in terms of stature—but the fact remains that “[t]he Federal
Bureau of Investigation is located in the Department of Justice.”31 It is
not independent from the department (just as Immigration and Customs
Enforcement is not independent from the Department of Homeland
Security) and does not deserve to be treated as if it were.
The next conservative Administration should direct the Attorney General
to remove the FBI from the Deputy Attorney General’s direct supervision
within the department’s organizational chart and instead place it under
the general supervision of the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal
Division and the supervision of the Assistant Attorney General for the
National Security Division, as applicable


On edit: It clipped the most important piece when I pasted it.

This can be accomplished through a simple internal departmental reorganization and does not need to
be approved by Congress.


The MAGA cult is already entrenched in the government. The convicted felon is only a part of the problem.

Thank you for reading my little rant.
