Delavan, WI – Republican Paul Nehlen today released a video in which he uses his finger and a semi-automatic rifle to demonstrate that a bump stock is not needed to simulate automatic fire, contrary to media reports flooding the airwaves in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre.

“Congress shouldn’t let people who misunderstood the latest James Bond movie write our gun laws,” declares Nehlen, in response to Paul Ryan and Republican leadership’s self-professed ignorance on bump-firing semi-automatic rifles.

“What’s Congress gonna do? Outlaw fingers?” Nehlen asks after bump-firing his M214 without a bump stock.

“I didn’t even know what they were until this week,” said Speaker Ryan, referring to bump stocks.

Nehlen also fired a Tavor “Bullpup” semi-automatic rifle outfitted with a suppressor to demonstrate that suppressors do not silence rifles, as Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine claimed.

The video demonstration highlights the ignorance among Republican Congressional leadership, Democrats, and the liberal media as they work together to enact further restrictions on the Second Amendment and bans on firearm accessories.


Hi, I’m Paul Nehlen. I’m gonna simulate automatic fire with this semi-automatic rifle using only my finger. [fires semi-automatic rifle] What’s Congress gonna do? Outlaw fingers? I also happen to have here a semi-automatic rifle with a suppressor on it, and I’m gonna demonstrate that this isn’t silent. [fires semi-automatic rifle] Congress shouldn’t let people who misunderstood the latest James Bond movie write our gun laws.”
