Message to President Trump: Listen to Your Son, Hands Off Firearm Suppressors

Is Donald Trump considering new control measures?

Following the Virginia Beach shooting, the anti-gun Left made its usual rounds by calling for gun control.

But things got interesting when reports found that the perpetrator, DeWayne Craddock, used two legally purchased .45 handguns to commit this atrocity. On top of that, one of those handguns was equipped with a suppressor.

Uncharacteristically, President Donald Trump criticized current suppressor policy saying that “I don’t like them at all” when asked about how this situation should be tackled.

Naturally, this has evoked speculation that Trump may be considering a suppressor ban.

Trump’s Justice Department already banned bump stocks last year, which has caused certain gun rights activists to go to the courts to battle this infringement.

Ironically, Trump’s son, Don Jr. made a video in 2016 in which he fired a pistol equipped with a suppressor.

Don Jr. is a big advocate of suppressors and justifies their de-regulation for safety reasons. He contends that without them, a shooter’s hearing could be put at risk. Suppressors are currently under tight control of the National Firearms Act.

In recent years, there have been several efforts to deregulate suppressors through the introduction of the Hearing Protection Act in Congress. However, with the current make-up of Congress, these measures appear to be dead in the water.

Nevertheless, President Trump should listen to his son and maintain a hands-off policy when it comes to suppressors.

The topic of suppressors and silencers is rather heated and filled with emotion. In times when the media seek to sensationalize gun violence and use misinformation to advance their civilian disarmament agenda, facts are desperately needed.

Certain groups like Hunting Mark have worked to educate the public on these accessories and advocate for their deregulation.  More information on the basics of silencers can be found here.

This incident will likely not be the last attempt that gun grabbers will exploit in order to ban the use of suppressors.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
