After the horrific massacre in Las Vegas that left 58 dead and over 500 injured, Democrats were quick to politicize the tragedy and revive a fresh push for gun control, without demonstrating much of an understanding of guns or how to effectively prevent these types of tragedies.
Take this tweet from Hillary Clinton that went out mere hours after the news broke:
The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.
Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.

Thankfully, Second Amendment supporters and law-abiding guns owners are stepping up and effectively shutting baseless claims like this down.
That's not how silencers work. Lets try to stick to facts instead of spreading fear.

Check out these 10 instances in which 2A advocates have shown Democrats what “gun sense” really is.
1. When actress Patricia Arquette decided to impart this piece of wisdom on the world.
You may have the right to have a gun but you don't have the right to shoot it at people because you are simply angry.

Almost like we should make murder and attempted murder illegal or something….🤔

2. When this “History Writer” failed at…history.
Really, really hard to kill 50, injure 500 with a knife, or even a truck. Pitifully easy with a semiautomatic rifle. https://t.co/rDuVGlgKWE

We already have real gun laws. The 2nd Amendment is all we need. Thanks for playing. Get your door prize on the way out.

10. When David Frum forgot about millions of Americans.
The biggest obstacle to gun safety: the myth of the “responsible gun owner” https://t.co/Yj4noL5kjl
— David Frum (@davidfrum) October 6, 2017
Huh? You mean the tens of millions of Americans that have not, do not, and will not harm anyone with their legally owned firearms?
— RFJ (@amaoesquerda) October 6, 2017
Keep the stupidity coming, people. Frum and other liberals pushing for sensible gun control are about to get an earful from us “nonexistent” responsible gun owners. We won’t let misinformation stand.
