Paul Ryan Sides with Hillary: Shelves Bill to Deregulate Suppressors
Breitbart.com ^ | 10-3-2017 | AWR HAWKINS

Two days after an attacker opened fire on concert goers in Las Vegas, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) announced he was shelving legislation to deregulate suppressors.

-snip-

Ryan has now shelved the Hearing Protection Act, which was introduced into Congress on January 9; it is the legislation containing suppressor deregulation. The Act does not legalize suppressors–as they are already legal–rather, it removes the burdensome process for acquiring them and erases the federal tax that must be paid in order to receive permission to posses one.

It's a shame that we can't get rid of the RINOs in Congress more easily than elections.

Stephen Paddock’s shooting is merely an excuse, a rationale, for his/their preferred action. If the HPA had party support then it would have moved right along to passage.
And we all know how the Dems like to use a tragedy. We just need to remember Rahm's quip IIRC, when he was still Chief of Staff for "Dumbo", about not letting a tragedy going to waste. :mad:
