Default This Clueless NY Senator Wants To Ban Things She Doesn’t Understand

“When I need expertise and calm, rational advice on firearms and accessories I look to New Yorkers for solutions,” said no one ever.


U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), representatives from law enforcement, and gun violence prevention advocates today vowed to block an effort currently underway in Congress to make it easier for criminals to obtain gun silencers. Gillibrand said she would fight against legislation introduced earlier this year in the Senate (S.59) and House of Representatives (H.R. 367) to eliminate gun silencers from the requirements of the National Firearms Act, making it easier for criminals to obtain these deadly weapons, making it harder and more dangerous for law enforcement to catch criminals.
None of the fear-mongering above is true.

The Hearing Protection Act of 2017 does not “easier for criminals to obtain gun silencers.” If Senator Gillibrand (or let’s be honest, her staff) had done any research at all before opposing HPA, she and they would know that if criminals actually wanted silencers, they could make them very easily from common items for less than $30.

As you know, silencer is actually a misnomer. It would more appropriately be called a gun muffler. It merely reduces the loud sound to a more comfortable level. But lets not confuse them with logic they'll never believe in the first place.
