FULL story at link

..."New Jersey Democrats Sen. Bob Menendez and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman on Thursday introduced legislation to ban gun silencers.


The 2021 Help Empower Americans to Respond (HEAR) Act, which Menendez first introduced in 2019 after the Virginia Beach mass shooting that killed 12 people, bans the sale, manufacturing, importation, transfer and possession of gun silencers.

"Gun silencers are dangerous devices with one purpose and one purpose only to muffle the sound of gunfire from unsuspecting victims," Menendez said in a Thursday statement. "The sound of gunshots is what signals you to run, hide, take cover, call the police and help others save themselves; however, this is nearly impossible when a gun silencer is used."

He described the bill as "commonsense legislation that will prevent armed assailants from using these deadly devices to make it easier to shoot and kill another person"...

Proof positive Menendez received his education form the Hollywood boob tube.

Did they steal the name of a bill once proposed here to legalize cans?

Their strategy = death by 1000 cuts

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

And by blaming guns, the left will protect Big Pharma's "life through 1000 meds".

Asking for a friend -

How does a law banning "silencers" prevent someone who has decided to shoot and kill another person or persons, from deciding to use one anyway? Why would they ignore the law against murder but obey the one against using silencers?

Maybe they believe that the louder the noise, the slower the bullet. If the gun was loud enough, the bullet would travel so slowly that it would bounce off the skin. 

The next step is to require noisemakers on knives and clubs, or require an assailant to scream loudly during an attack. More noise = less harm.

If they truly believe that the more noise the safer people are then they should eliminate ALL gun laws......... whats louder than a gun?   2 guns!!!    3 guns!!!

 

if all potential victims were armed it would be so loud it might eliminate all death on the planet (including from diseases)
