Fear-based legislation is out of control. It’s not just a matter of trading a little freedom for a semblance of security. That’s an illusion…but you already know that gun control is about the control, not about the guns. All you have to do to prove it is look at the current laws on suppressors (silencers), laws that have no logical basis or grounding in fact. There’s so much superstition and confusion on the topic that most people think it’s outright illegal to have a silencer at all.
In actuality, it’s not illegal to own and use suppressors – and in fact they make your gun SAFER…but thanks to the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934, they are heavily regulated by people whose knowledge of the wide world of firearms is limited to Hollywood drama, skewed statistics, and shoddy late-night news reporting.
