Suppressors, Death Squads And Hearing Loss: Larry Correia "Fisks" An Attack On Guns

There are innumerable examples of the stunning ignorance, laziness and blind obeisance to liberal orthodoxy among the media when it comes to guns. Among the worst excesses of stupidity are any mention of full-auto, and today's topic: suppressors.

Here is Larry Correia knocking the snot out of "author Elizabeth Moon, who is an extremely good science fiction writer, but who apparently knows jack shit about guns. Which is kind of sad, since she was a Marine."

He is a witty and very caustic writer, which I like very much. And even though he has a bad case of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), he is worth a read.

An Opinion on Suppressors and the Hearing Protection Act

Today’s topic is suppressors, also known as silencers, which are basically car mufflers but for guns. Some folks are having a giant hyperbolic come apart because Congress is thinking about making suppressors easier for people to own. Note, they are already perfectly legal to own, but the process to get one is convoluted and stupid. This law would just get rid of the convoluted and stupid part.

There are lots of excerpt-worthy paragraphs, so just read the his post and chuckle.

But...he made a mistake. A pretty basic one, so whoever identifies and corrects the mistake gets a Platinum membership with Troll-B-GonTM and ampersand utility.
