I know meat, and I know bones.

And the NRA is throwing us a bone. The headline reads, "Las Vegas Shooting: N.R.A. Supports New Rules on ‘Bump Stock’ Devices."

Seriously? Is that the best they can do after the Las Vegas sniper attack? Supporting a ban on an accessory? I mean, I recognize that this strikes them as a big shift, but it's really not. They're not calling for limiting clip capacity or aiding gunpowder tracking. Heck, they're also not arguing for better medical/psychological care, which was supposed to be the bulwark against mass murders such as occurred at Sandy Hook.

I will bet you even money that the NRA merely made a calculated decision to throw the bump stock manufacturers under the bus and preserve the rifle manufacturers. Takers?
