Although the mass shooting in Las Vegas won’t likely delay the vote scheduled for later this week on the regulation of gun silencers, it could alter the outcome.
A provision called the Hearing Protection Act, tucked into the bipartisan Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement, or SHARE Act, would eliminate restrictions on silencers and instead treat them as ordinary firearms. Under the National Firearms Act of 1934, suppressors – along with “destructive devices” such as grenades or rocket launchers, “sawed-off” shotguns and machine guns – require federal registration and a special license to own, as well as a $200 tax stamp to purchase that would also be repealed under the proposed law. A vote on this law was delayed before….
Remember the last time that this law’s vote was delayed? SHTFPlan remembers. It was after the shooting of representative Steve Scalise while practicing baseball back in June. But that’s all just a coincidence, right?
The vote was postponed until early September. It passed out of House Committee on Natural Resources on a party-line vote of 22-13 on September 13 and it is expected to see a similar result when put up for a vote in the full House. Democrats in the Senate, however, are expected to block the measure; and they now have a crisis to exploit in order to do so.
Gun control advocates have slammed the measure as a boon to manufacturers of silencers, whose sales has been slumping in recent years. They also point out silencers would make it much more difficult for law enforcement to stop shooters like the one who opened fire on an outdoor music in Las Vegas, killing at least 50 and injuring hundreds of others Sunday night.
“Law enforcement and military experts have told the American people and Congress they oppose this bill, and that there are very effective hearing protection devices already available on the open market,” Kris Brown, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said in a statement after the bill passed out of committee. “Keeping guns out of dangerous hands and stopping school shootings, ambushes of police and other mass shootings before they can start is the priority for the American people – not making it harder to detect a shooting once it starts.” -U.S. News
Hillary Clinton has also already taken the NRA (National Rifle Association) to task and blamed the organization for this shooting.
President Trump made arrangements to go to Las Vegas on Wednesday to show support for those killed in the massacre.
” it could alter the outcome”
Now all of a Sudden it is all about THE GUNS…
They couldn’t get any traction on the FLAG issue so now they have switched gears…SO PATHETIC Too many parts of that Vegas story are fishy.
Please take caution and think through this stuff we are being told
” it could alter the outcome”
Kevin2, it’s possible but let’s hope not. I wouldn’t mind having a few noise suppressors. No matter what legislation Congress comes up with it’s null and void in my book. Won’t follow it.
I wouldn’t be bragging about that, ignoring and violating gun laws, on public forums.
You do realize there is no such thing as anonymity on the internet?
If I lived in the country and shot in my back yard one would be nice. I shoot at a dance and if my gun goes pop while the guy next to be goes kaboom it serves no use.
I think they’ll attempt to put the semi autos under NFA34.
My departed friend Aaron Zelman of JPFO once said to me, “if you added up every death by criminal deed in the 20th century it would be insignificant to the genocide of just a single government upon their disarmed population”. I believe the total conservative estimate for genocide is 55 million people.
Range not dance……damn
Only better security at the Casino would have stopped the shooter. Silencers only muffle the sound down a few decibels and do not make guns noise completely silent. This article writer is full of shit. It would be like saying more car crashes occure because cars have exhaust mufflers. Who T-F are you kidding? I will buy a few gun mufflers if they are made legal. Gun noise scares nature and harms hearing. Bringing gun noise down in half using silencers is a smart move. LEO’s need silencers on their ignorant fat pieholes. Mulitary? More assholes and thugs running around the planet nation destroying. They need a bullet also and a 50% reduction in their budgets and half of the militaer based closed permanently.
This incident in vegas is a false flag!! Watch and see how this pans out and when the truth is juuuuuust about ready to come out miraculously this will all go silent! Gun vote this week a man kills himself AGAIN .. no prior, just bought a place……
Yes, Clinton’s comment confirms this was engineered by the Dems to drive their agenda.
REPOSTING. ALL THE PEOPLE IN INTENSIVE CARE IN PURTO RICO DIED.
From Lucy Lussier Nielsen via Betsy Alexander:
Nelson M. Rosario
My dad lives in #PuertoRico. I got to speak with him this morning. I say got to because there are tons of people who haven’t been able to reach loved ones, or have barely any communication with them.
I explained to my dad what the President had said, that Puerto Ricans wanted everything done for them, that they couldn’t get their workers to work, and that the mayor of San Juan was playing politics when she got upset yesterday taking about how dire the situation on the island is.
My dad didn’t say anything for a second, and just goes “Wow.” He then says “You know what, I’m gonna share one detail with you. Just one.”
Now for context, my dad is helping with the rebuilding effort down there, and a lot of his friends are connected with the government, whether in elected office or appointed positions.
So, my dad says “There is a medical center down here, and everyone that was in the Intensive Care Unit, died. Everyone. And that’s just one detail that I can tell you. That’s what should be tweeted at the President.”
Japanese Banks Are Planning
PR’s been sucking off the American worker long enough! You live on an island dumbshit. Hurricanes are a problem dumbshit and we will help you out ASAP. The teamsters and others decided to “slow move” the aid to make Trump look bad. All the deaths are on your libtard, communist, America hating friends in the DNC.
iT TOOK TRUMP A WEEK TO DECIDE TO GIVE AID TO PUERTO RICO.. BUT HE IMMEDIDATLEY DID SO FOR FLORIDA AND TEXAS
And your an anti Trump troll,
What’s your thoughts on those democrat teamsters and their work stoppage?
Let us make it perfectly clear.
59 dead over 500 wounded, will be nothing compared to how may will be killed and wounded if the Libtards try to take our guns away.
This is looking more and more like the Libtards just pulled off a False Flag!!!!
You dumb shit yes it took more than a week to send, BECAUSE THERE WAS A SECOND HURRICANE HEADING TO PUERTO RICO.
“A” is Antifa Commie!!!!
So? Take care of our own first, especially since we got hit before PR did. PR turned itself into a looted socialist welfare state – not our fault that they cannot even feed themselves, let alone handle a disaster.
The turd worlders from PR will flood into USA and never leave.
Puerto Rico is not a US State. I saw cut them off and let the entire island drift away. No loss. They are $128 Billion in debt and are nothing but a welfare pod. A Democrats dream. Send the rest of the Commie Democrats to PR then cut them off. Lazy useless eater spics.
Instead of being compelled to just providing aid, President Trump is going to have to put up with a bankrupt and failed state like the deadbeat Puerto Rico demanding — via Hillary Clinton, Democrats, the “New York Times” and the “Washington Post,” and other MSM — that he bail them out. President Trump doesn’t have worry about this from Florida or Texas.
Anonymous, don’t be a moron. PUERTO RICO IS 1000 MILES FROM THE US MAINLAND. THE ONLY 2 WAYS TO GET SUPPLIES THERE ARE BY SEA OR AIR. AND WE STILL HAVE OUR OWN PEOPLE IN TX AND FL TO HELP. DUH!
There was significant damage to port infrastructure due to the storm as well as terrible weather for a significant time after the initial passing of the storm, there was also a lack og
F manpower on the ground in puertorico as well as equipment necessary to secure and make operable the port.
But most libtards think this shit miraculously can fly out of DJTs ass
Given the geographic location of PR, it could be a tourist trap, but isn’t.
The rampant corruption and criminality of the inhabitants ensures it will NEVER be a tourist Mecca, just like Haiti.
vote is as good as dead now.
Enough of the Hollywood brainwashing. No such thing as a silencer. I smell a big fat rat.
It’s a hearing protection device.
Hillary has pointed out that it would have been much worse if the shooter had a silencer since no one would realize they were being shot at and killed in mass.
But I’m wondering why the shooter didn’t realize that as well and get one, surely someone that can easily get hold of an illegal machine gun could get hold of a much more commonly available illegal silencer as well.
Funny how the shootings in Las Vegas happened just as the vote to allow silencers was to come up.
And then there is the successful Catalan vote for secession from Spain.
Maybe not one false flag but two?
My thought exactly……… the whole thing stinks…
Kind puts a new spin on the whole “suicide by Clinton.”
What excellent timing! NNNOOOOO, it’s just a coincidence!
No chance of that. Instead it will be a gun reduction bill.
Now you will have to use a free plastic bottle instead of a 500 $ can? Plus the duct tape? what suffering ? A 22 pistol with a plastic bottle is better than giving away your position?
Been waiting to see if someone would post this. Check out the muzzle flash location. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gywc58Bxxc8&feature=youtu.be
Well for one example, if the Las Vegas shooter had a gun silencer more people would be dead and more injured because they wouldn’t have known where and which direction to run to in order to get away from the shooting.
Seems no matter what they try Americans will not give up their guns? Beat your pruning hooks into swords? It’s coming? So look up and rejoice. Your redemption is near?
The dude who made the “it’s all fake video” video says he was in the Marines so, you know, he’s been in “crisis situations” and he knows what happens.
So, why does he think the LV shootings are all fake?
Well, let’s list ’em all… we won’t tell you why his claims are ridiculous… but here they are anyway.
1. People aren’t screaming in pain.
2. There’s no blood and nobody is being treated for a gunshot wound.
3. There are “interesting props”, he takes specific issue with the wheelbarrows.
4. There aren’t enough police or ambulances present for a situation of this magnitude.
5. People are too calm, given the crisis.
There are a few other reasons, but that sums it up.
I don’t know if this was staged or not because I am not there but many are thinking this event was staged as a ruse to get our guns away from us. We already know they don’t want us to be armed.
Don’t worry, this is only round 10. Wev’e been around this barn before. CC has saved pepoles lives…..when they would have died without a gun. Chitcago has gun control and more than 1500
people die without protection…per year.
Does MSM, Sorosites, demoncraps, etc., report that …NO!
It doesn’t fit their agenda…or intrest, because most killings are black on black.
The word Silencer is used like the word Assault Rifle. Its propaganda.
Supressors only bring the noise level down. Cops kill more Americans than any terrorist threat.
Seems the only qualifications you need to be a Cop, is flat feet, a trigger finger and a bad attitude. Brains are not a requirement.
Silencers have NOTHING to do with this!
There will be no “yes” vote on silencers. Not as long as Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, the “New York Times,” the “Washington Post,” and MSM, continue running the U.S. government in exile.
Effin’ Clinton. The brass hadn’t hit the ground in LV and she’s already working to gain political capitol. The entire left/progressive/commie movement is working this to no end. Very sad.
Hillary has spoken against it.
Hillary doesn’t want it, it won’t happen.
Wait and see.
Hillary is still running her mouth like anybody cares what she has to say. Somebody noted that in Vegas no gun flashes were seen coming from the upper floor on video. Is that relevant?
Suppressors would not have made a difference. Sound echoed in the buildings. They determined source/direction via muzzle flash. Suppressors are a good thing for hunters.
