    Application of the Definition of Machinegun to Bump Fire Stocks and Other Similar Devices
    Document for Public Inspection as a Proposed Rule

    The following unpublished document was posted in the Federal Register, December 21, 2017, Document Number 2017-27717 for Public Inspection as a Proposed Rule:

    Summary: The Department of Justice anticipates issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would interpret the statutory definition of “machinegun” in the National Firearms Act of 1934 and Gun Control Act of 1968 to clarify whether certain devices, commonly known as “bump fire” stocks, fall within that definition. Before doing so, the Department and ATF need to gather information and comments from the public and industry regarding the nature and scope of the market for these devices.

    Dates: Written comments must be postmarked and electronic comments must be submitted on or before 30 DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION IN THE FEDERAL REGISTER. Commenters should be aware that the electronic Federal Docket Management System will not accept comments after Midnight Eastern Standard Time on the last day of the comment period.

    Addresses: You may submit comments, identified by docket number (2017R-22), by any of the following methods:
