Guns.com has an article today regarding the introduction of a bicameral bill to remove firearm suppressors (commonly called “silencers”) from ATF regulation by excluding them from the National Firearms Act. Although I personally would love to pick up a silencer for a couple of my guns, and therefore support the bill, I can see that reasonable people may not be as crazy about this idea.
But here’s the inane quote that made me laugh out loud:
“The bill would end the federal requirement for background checks on firearm silencer sales, and make it legal for convicted felons, domestic abusers, and the dangerously mentally ill to buy and possess silencers,” said Everytown in a statement. “To the satisfaction of NRA headquarters, the legislation would profit gun manufacturers, who could mass market firearm silencers at the expense of public safety.”
. . . wait for it . . .
. . . firearms! Or ammunition!
