Donald Trump Jr leads campaign to overturn restrictions on gun silencers despite mass shooting fears

Donald Trump Jr leads campaign to overturn restrictions on gun silencers despite mass shooting fearsDonald Trump’s eldest son is spearheading a campaign to overturn restrictions on gun silencers – legislation gun safety activists say has existed for decades for reasons of public security. The country’s largest gun rights lobbying group, the National Rifle Association (NRA), is backing legislation that would make it easier for people to buy silencers, or suppressors. Restrictions on their sale were first introduced during the administration of Franklin D Roosevelt, and advocates say the sound of a gun being fired acts as a loud, obvious safety signal for people to take cover, run the way other way or simply be alert.
