    So if you pass this law and it doesn't change gun violence would you remove it after say 5 years?

    Even if commercial "Bumpfire" devices are banned they are so simple that anyone can make one or use readily explained techniques to replicate one.
    Without HiCap magazines they are useless to mass murderers.

    Irrelevant. But depending on the definition, quite a few.

    Add to that the fact they they can be fun.

    Now let's bring in the 2nd part of my test in the OP: ...and please explain how you justify their danger vs what benefit they provide for legitimate shooters.

    Thanks for agreeing with my argument against them. They are not needed.....by anyone but mass murderers of course.

    Less time wasted loading up clips, plus you need to buy less of them.
