Hillary Clinton is among those calling for stronger gun control after the mass shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night that left at least 58 people dead.

In a tweet, Clinton 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.”

Doc couldn’t hold back his frustration at Clinton’s complete misconception of what a “silencer” does while sitting in for Glenn on Monday’s show.

“Is she telling all of the facts? No, she absolutely is not,” Doc said.

A suppressor or silencer is a device that attaches to a firearm and subdues the sound. Silencers are primarily used to protect against loss of hearing, and they can’t completely quiet the sound of a gunshot.
