[3/14/17] Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand went out of her way Tuesday to prove she knows next to nothing about guns or silencers.
Gillibrand is currently trying to stop suppressors from being removed from the National Firearms Act (NFA), and fired off several tweets against the common sense move to protect the hearing of people who enjoy shooting.
The tweets were soaked with the ignorance of somebody who has spent more time watching spy movies than actually firing weapons.
When someone gets shot by a gun with a silencer, it’s quiet. Witnesses might not hear. Police will be less likely to track down the shooter.
