    Anyone notice how this is no longer the top of the fold news? Why? Because the shooter was a black Democrat.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    I read several articles that claimed Virginia Beach banned silencer possession. As far as I know, cities in VA cannot have their own weapons bans.

    Unless I’m out of the loop, private silencers have been on the federal restricted list similar to tommy guns for some years.

    The National Firearms Act has required registration for silencers, machine guns, gadget guns, destructive devices and short barrel shotguns/rifles since 1934. The requirement to obtain the local police chief signature on the tax stamp form was eliminated about 5 years ago so it is now less difficult for people to obtain them in counties that are anti-gun. Still hard to get around that pesky $200 tax for making or buying them though.

    I checked the Virginia beach municipal code website and while the city bans open carry of certain guns, it does not ban possession of any kind of firearm. I think one paper said silencers were banned in the city and others went with it without checking their facts.

    NFA firearms are a strange animal. Support and denigration crosses Democrat and Republican party lines. The general trend in the last decade has been to ease restrictions on them; something that could not happen without Democrat party support. I've encountered Republican support for increased control of silencers also. At the federal level Republicans are divided on silencers now.
