    They decided to put the gun silencer bill on hold for awhile until the heat dies down.

    One of the hearings the House canceled is a bill that would make gun silencers easier to buy

    They said it's to save the hearing of children. Hello, "ear plugs". That's what we wore in the military.

    The real reason is to make it easier for a murdering disgruntled employee to go from office to office killing people he worked with getting as many as he can before he gets caught. Killing on the quiet. It's what Republicans want. What other reason could it be? Anyone?

    Why does the GOP always end up on the side of murderers? Can someone explain?

    We need to pass stronger laws regulating murder.

    We need to eliminate all murder laws, since criminals are going to murder anyways

    Suppressors reduce a weapons range and accuracy which makes Clintons statement about how much worse the Las Vegas attack could have been if the shooter had used one all the more stupid.

    Why is it stupid . He was randomly shooting into a large crowd . Accuracy is not a problem.

    And a mufffled sound would have made things worse because people wouldn't be aware of the gunshots or at least have a general idea where the shots were coming from.
