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.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
