Washington (CNN) -- "A congressional hearing scheduled for Wednesday morning to debate gun legislation has been canceled until further notice in the wake of Wednesday's shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice.

The House Natural Resources Federal Lands Subcommittee spokeswoman Molly Block confirmed the decision to CNN.
The panel had been due to debate the "Sportsmen's Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act," which includes 18 provisions related to guns and hunting, as well as other recreational sporting and outdoors provisions.
The measure would make it easier to purchase silencers, transport guns across state lines and ease restrictions on armor-piercing bullets..."

***********

The gun violence hit a little too close to home. Can't wait for Wayne LaPierre's statement, if there is one.

Rand Paul already made that statement. He heard a gunshot but thought nothing of it because he grew up with the sound of gunshots in the deep dark backwoods of the South. I guess he came to his senses when he glanced down at his feet and noticed he was wearing shoes.

What could possibly be the justification for easing the restrictions on armor-piercing bullets? It doesn't seem likely that the police would be in favor of that one.

Of course as far as silencers go, if a gun is shot and no one hears it...?
