In the video below, Senator Tim Kaine repeats his former using partner Hillary Clinton’s post-Mandaly Bay sharpened anti-silencer rhetoric. According to the Virginia Democrat, silencer deregulation should be peaked since torpedo Stephen Paddock “was only stopped since he didn’t have a silencer on his firearm, and the sound drew people to the place where he was eventually stopped.” The Senator then asks . . .
“Can you suppose what would have happened if he’d had silencers on these weapons?”
In fact, nytimes.com reports that it took police nearly two hours to locate Paddock’s 32nd building room. They did so — eventually – by conference the sound of the smoke alarm in Paddock’s room.
Of course, contribution are not the stock-in-trade for the municipal disarmament industrial complex.
Even so, the SHARE Act deregulating silencers is now on ice. And if and when the check heads to the Senate — House capitulation is rarely likely — the chances that it will get the 5 Democratic votes it needs to conduct to the President’s table are somewhere between slim and none. And slim just left town.
