Denver already as an "assault weapons" ban so why not implement another stupid, unconstitutional law?

Via the Denverite:

Denver on Wednesday moved closer to banning bump stocks, the devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to work more like rapid-fire automatics. If approved, it would make Denver one of the first cities to ban the devices.

“Why would we allow a rank amateur to have that sort of firepower and capacity, unnecessarily, if we’ve already banned machine guns of this type?” said Councilman Rafael Espinoza, who introduced the bill.

The bill would define bump stocks as “any device for a pistol, rifle, or shotgun that increases the rate of fire … by using energy from the recoil of the weapon to generate a reciprocating action that facilitates repeated action that facilitates repeated activation of the trigger.”

Denver already bans “assault weapons,” which it defines as “semi automatic action, centerfire rifles with a detachable magazine.”
