“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weighed in on the deadliest mass shooting in US history, claiming Monday morning that there would have been more deaths if the shooter had a ‘silencer,'” dailycaller.com reports. “’Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer,’ Clinton tweeted on Monday, ‘which the NRA wants to make easier to get.'”
So here we go . . .
Ms. Clinton’s Tweet signals the somewhat obvious fact that the SHARE Act — deregulating suppressors — is now on ice. We can also expect the civilian disarmament industrial complex to focus on the number of guns found in Stephen Paddock’s hotel room. They’ll say states/Uncle Sam needs to limit the number of gun purchases over a specified time (i.e. one gun a month, or less).
Where else the antis train their attention depends on a few key facts, yet to be revealed . . .
If Mr. Paddock was a conservative and/or NRA member, they’ll focus their ire on all gun owners, labelling all but hunters “right wing gun nuts.”
If the Las Vegas spree killer used a machine gun and bought it legally, they’ll argue for a complete full-auto ban, and another assault rifle ban as well (because guns).
If he converted a rifle to full auto, they’ll still argue for a complete ban.
Watch this space. It’s gonna be a rough ride.
