Sen. Menendez introduces legislation to ban silencers in the US

TRENTON –
Gun silencers like the one used in a recent lethal shooting in Virginia Beach would be banned under new legislation that New Jersey U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez is introducing.

Menendez unveiled the legislation Friday alongside Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora.

New Jersey already bans silencers. But they are lawful in many other states, including neighboring Pennsylvania. The new measure would open a 90-day buyback window for the estimated 1.5 million registered silencers.
