Eight hours after the mass shooting in Las Vegas began, which left nearly 60 dead and more than 500 wounded, Hillary Clinton turned the conversation political, tweeting about gun silencers. She said:
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.

But would gun silencers make any difference in mass shootings? Last February, The Daily Signal traveled to the National Rifle Association to learn about gun silencers, also known as suppressors. Watch the video to hear the same firearms being fired both with and without silencers, and decide the sound effects for yourself.
