Skip to comments.Hillary's Running Mate: Vegas Massacre Was Stopped Because The Shooter Didn't Have a Silencer
Posted on 10/04/2017 3:37:22 PM PDT by Kaslin
Democrat Tim Kaine, who -- and people forget this -- is a member of the United States Senate who ran on Hillary Clinton's ticket last in fall's election (look it up!), weighed in on the gun control debate that is raging the aftermath of Sunday night's horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas. In a very special attempt to link his opposition to a Republican proposal to ease federal restrictions on gun suppressors to the massacre, Kaine explained how he believes local authorities were able to put an end to the shooter's reign of terror. Just so we're clear, this person is a sitting Senator who wields one of just 100 upper chamber votes on gun policy legislation:
He was only stopped finally because he did not have a silencer on his weapon. And the sound drew people to the place where he was ultimately stopped. Can you imagine what this would have been if he had silencers on these weapons?”
Hillary, who rushed to debase herself by immediately politicizing the Vegas attack, got fact-checked by the Washington Post for spouting similarly ignorant nonsense about "silencers:"
The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.
Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 2, 2017
Actually, even with "a silencer," it's pretty loud. An AR-15 rifle would have a noise equivalent to a jack hammer. https://t.co/rL1YFuAB5b https://t.co/YE9smBZqGG— Glenn Kessler (@GlennKesslerWP) October 2, 2017
That correction stems from an analysis in which WaPo awarded another Senate Democrat 'Three Pinocchios' for garbage assertions about "silencers." Now seems like the perfect opportunity to highlight one small but insightful snippet from a data journalist's much-discussed column explaining how her arguments for gun control "crumbled" as she examined the facts: "I can’t endorse policies whose only selling point is that gun owners hate them. Policies that often seem as if they were drafted by people who have encountered guns only as a figure in a briefing book or an image on the news," she wrote. Those people apparently include multiple US Senators and a failed presidential candidate.
Doesn’t this freak have a white van he needs to be driving around?
The dildo with ears doesn’t realize a silencer would melt on an automatic.
What a g-damn fool!
This clown could have been one frail heart beat away.
Tweedledee dumb and Tweedledee dumber
The Russians hacked out computers!!!
Are he and Hillary just complete idiots?? Hundreds wounded, almost 60 killed, and that number may rise. And these idiots are talking about silencers on weapons???
Any remorse or sympathy from these leading Democrats??? Or are we going to have an insipid discussion speculating how things could have been worse somehow, if this happened or that happened?
We really dodged a bullet last November with this pink pussy hat wearing douchebag.
Police ID’ed his room after the gun set off the smoke alarm.
What a moron Kaine is.
He’s watched too many Mission Impossible movies.
It’s even creepier when people check the reflection in the window.
Who reacts like that to a horse trailer?
Whenever I think about going all wobbly on President Trump’s performance in office, stories like this reminded me how he is crushing the whole “not being Hillary” thing every single day. This kind of stupid demagoguery about silencers would not just be official policy, the media would be stepping on each other to praise the wisdom and infallibility of Hillary and how with a stroke of a pen she would cure America of murder.
I know this and I am not that knowledgeable at all. Are Dems all common sense impaired?
Wow, wonder what they have on that guy.
“This clown could have been one frail heart beat away.”
God isn’t quite that mad at us ... yet.
Pay attention, Mr Kaine: ‘it is better to remain quiet and let people think you are stupid, that to open your mouth and remove all doubt’.
