“If the Anti-2ndAmendment crowd can’t earn merit-based policy support, they will create fear-based support.”
Anti-2ndAmendment Radicals in congress want to ban suppressors. But why?
Well, they’d like you to believe that suppressors encourage murderers to go on killing sprees because somehow their guns will magically become silent. They actually try calling them “silencers,” hoping the term will catch on so they can fool the people who aren’t paying attention. Those anti-gun folks who don’t know any better, but know that they fear guns, will fall for anything if they are politically motivated or scared enough.
The truth is, criminals don’t use suppressors because they’re heavy, they make firearms much harder to hide and they don’t quiet a gun nearly enough to justify their use in a crime, but that doesn’t stop the anti-gun crowd from pushing the fake narrative about suppressors. Try telling an Anti-Gunner that suppressors are never used in mass killings and they will rebut with the one case in which a suppressor was found. They are trained to have the Virginia Beach killing ready-to-go, because it is the only one they know of where a suppressor was found at the scene.
