The debate is whether the benefits of more silencers would outweigh the costs.
Really? There’s such a debate?
Silencers are “used to conceal the fact that you are firing a weapon,” said Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.). “There will be more crimes committed, more people killed” if the current bill passes.
Ah, I see. Chicken little runs on stage. “The sky is falling. The sky is falling.”
But it gets better.
Not everyone is convinced that shooting-related hearing loss is a problem that needs another solution.
“You already have the answer,” said Kris Brown, chief strategy officer at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “There are things available on the market to protect hearing.”
Why are gun controllers so anti-science? And here I thought the answer to the question was that if millions of gun owners get suppressors, they will get a better cheek weld on their rifles and prevent hearing loss.
