Posted on 10/03/2017 7:10:41 PM PDT by Kaslin
Hillary Clinton never misses a chance to exploit a tragedy for her own personal and political gain.
Ever the hypocrite, she urged Americans to put politics aside. Then she proceeded to immediately inject politics into the catastrophic shooting in Las Vegas.
Clinton knew she could not call for a ban of a weapon already banned by law. The fully automatic weapon allegedly used by gunman, Stephen Paddock, was made illegal under federal law back in 1986.
So Clinton invented an ancillary argument that more people would have died if Paddock had used a silencer. Survivors were still being treated when she began condemning the National Rifle Association and attacking the law on silencers.
Clearly, Clinton knows nothing about firearms, although she purports to be an instant expert on everything.
Forget that Clinton used the wrong term. Silencers dont silence. The proper and accurate term is suppressor because they diminish, but do not eliminate, the sound of gunfire.
But Clintons claim that Paddock could have used such a device on his automatic weapon only underscores that Clinton is nothing, if not obtuse. Suppressors do not function well on automatic weapons. They tend to melt or malfunction under the intense heat of automatic fire. For this reason, there are only a few companies that even manufacture them for use on automatic weapons. And there is almost no marketplace for them.
Yet, Clinton is calling for a ban on a device that has no significant history of use in U.S. crime.

And it worked.
I expected no less from the old hag.
Belongs in jail. Should have been tried, convicted, sentenced and jailed 30 days after the election. But no, because we have a UniParty “swamp dweller” as AG. Sickening.
Maybe she’ll just die before McCain does.
...The mass murderer who terrorized Las Vegas Sunday was using an illegal weapon...
The stock pictured was a bumpfire, slidefire type stock. It simply facilitates faster manual pull of the trigger which creates a higher rate of fire.
Neither the firearm or the stock or a combination of the two are illegal.
But, I’ll bet they soon will be. Any takers?
What else would you expect? Just be glad she’s not the President.
How many redundancies can one title hold!
Not very Presidential (as the left says). As a matter of fact, nothing she has said post election has met the left’s qualification of Presidential.
Uninformed? more like diabolical, sinister and evil
Fox said it can shoot like 700 rounds per...second? Minute? Manually?
Paul Ryan Sides with Hillary: Shelves Bill to Deregulate Suppressors
The truth of the matter is that RINO Ryan would side with the devil himself IF any DIMocRAT told him to!
Lowlife scum that he is
DEMOCRAT GUN CONTROL BILL
All Democrats must undergo a Universal Background Check and gun Registration.
Another Democrat just shot 500 Republicans.
Democrats do eagerly support gun control.
Did it not? Ditto.
She did not speak up when guns were given to Mexican dr ug cartels to shoot up Mexican citizens.
