Dem Senator Makes Dumb Statement About Guns…Gets DESTROYED On Social Media!

Anti-gun advocates will lie about almost anything to get their point across.

Since the first city-dwelling snowflake who never killed anything to survive started scribing noise ordinances, the issue of gun control has been debated. What they don’t understand, they try to stop and use “safety” as a reason to deny guns to citizens.

Some of the anti-gun reasoning is so silly it borders on absurd. That’s the case with a Democratic senator who actually believes the sound of a gun – the “bang” – is an engineered safety feature. He doesn’t want this safety feature removed from guns using what he mistakenly calls a “silencer.”

Twitchy let loose a sarcastic response to the clueless senator’s attack on guns.

You know how utility companies add that unpleasant odor to natural gas so customers can tell if there’s a leak? It’s a little- known fact that the inventor of the firearm similarly added that really loud bang sound as a safety feature, but the NRA is hoping to turn that around.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Ct., is getting attention for a recent tweet, Twitchy pointed out, because but his source is an opinion piece in Monday’s Washington Post. The piece is authored by Robert J. Spitzer, political science professor and author of “Guns Across America,” which is not, unfortunately, an oversized coffee table book of firearms through the ages.

Murphy’s tweet leaves the reader in suspense, but the important gun safety feature Spitzer refers to is the noise guns make: “Gunfire – loud, sharp, rude, abrupt – is an important safety feature of any firearm.”

The article went into details, Twitchy reported, showing the noise of an AR-15, punctuated by explosions “loud like a bomb,” could cause the shooter himself  disorientation, anxiety, illness, and “temporary PTSD,” but we’d never considered the sound “rude.”

If good manners are everything to the anti-gun rights crowd, it seems they’d enjoy spending some time at the gun range, where everyone’s armed and very polite.

Obviously, Spitzer is alluding to the fact that gunfire (not to mention false reports of gunfire), Twitchy reported, can cause people to scatter in panic. But his concern isn’t so much the sale of noise suppressors as it is the NRA and its imperative “to eviscerate any and all gun laws.”

Believe it or not, the NRA and its members don’t oppose all gun laws. It was President Obama who commuted the sentences of hundreds of felons charged with firearms violations, because he thought their mandatory sentences for drug possession with intent to distribute were too strict and outdated.

Social media was not kind to the ignorant senator trying to make a point out of fiction.

The senator should stick to simple legislation and leave the gun laws to grown-ups who can handle guns.

Suppressors or not, guns in the hands of responsible citizens are not the problem. He needs to go after the irresponsible people at all levels.

Of course, he would likely spend all his time policing crooked and ignorant politicians.
