Good luck with that. The bumpstock ban notwithstanding, an AR15 still only fires one round per function of the trigger—bumpstock or no bumpstock. And since the ban, there’s no lawful way (just like before bumpstocks were invented) to convert an AR15 to fire at the same rate as a fully automatic weapon.
An AR-15 with a bump stock only fires one round per trigger pull, the same as an AR-15 without one. A bump stock is not required to bump fire an AR-15. It can be "readily" done without a bump stock.

Any intellectually honest person who supported the Trump administration classifying bump stocks as MG must also support reclassifying AR-15 as MG, because they can be "readily" bump fired without modification. To do otherwise is intellectually dishonest.
Bump firing is a shooting technique. If bump firing is bad, because we want to limit the rate of fire, then it's a very, very, slippery slope that does not end well. Have you ever seen Jerry Michulek (sp?) speed firing a revolver? You quickly reach a logical conclusion that all guns must be banned. The fact that the SCOTUS refused to review the first domino here is troubling. But on the bright side, they also never said that the bump stock ban WAS constitutional, either. If a lawsuit like the one in this thread makes it to them, then hopefully they will be forced to review the entire issue.
