This could pass in law the next time around of a Mass killing here in The USA. Of Course, he never had ear problems when shooting in a firefight either.

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez announced over the weekend his intention to introduce a bill in the U.S. Senate that would ban the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer or possession of ?gun silencers? or, as he also refers to them, ?tools of death.?

?The NRA might be willing to prop up the gun industry no matter the human cost, but not me,? Menendez said at a press conference, flanked by activists from Moms Demand Action. ?No one needs a silencer to defend themselves or their home, but everyone needs to be able to hear when their lives are in danger.?

?Silencers undermine public safety. They undermine the ability of law enforcement to do their jobs. And they undermine the ability of Americans in the midst of mass shootings to survive,? Menendez continued. ?The sound of gunshots is what tells you that this is not just another drill. That this is not a nail gun. That this is not fireworks. The sound of gunshots is what tells you this is a real, life-and-death situation and it is time to run, hide, take cover and help others save themselves.?

    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain
