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

Published

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.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

on

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
