The federal government has strictly limited the sale of firearm silencers for as long as James Bond and big-screen gangsters have used them to discreetly shoot enemies between the eyes. The gun industry and GOP want to change that.

Violence prevention advocates are outraged that the industry is trying to ease silencer restrictions by linking the issue to the eardrums of gun owners. They argue the legislation will make it easier for criminals and potential mass shooters to obtain devices to conceal attacks.

There is absolutely no need for silencers. Competitive shooters, hunters and anybody else can use noise deadening headphones. I hate to think of what our future holds with these barbarians in charge 8(

Silencers only have value for those whose shooting plans violate the law...a scary position to have elected leaders champion since so many firearm deaths are domestic violence victims. Thanks Dandelion

Ordinary everyday reality trying to imitate poor quality action movies. . .

Shared over social media to raise and spread awareness.
