Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham called out former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday for pushing gun control without having all the facts on the Las Vegas shooting.
“The politics of it is so inane at this point, but Hillary Clinton spoke before she knew any of the facts,” Ingraham said Tuesday during a “Fox and Friends” interview. “You can’t really put a silencer on an AR-15. Melts the barrel. It’s not what she said it is.”
Clinton tweeted on Monday, asking how much worse the shooting would have been if gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, used a silencer.
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.

Ingraham decried Clinton’s “level of ignorance” and was disgusted by her willingness to exploit a tragedy to advance a political agenda.
“She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Just a level of ignorance, and I found it to be despicable,” Ingraham said. “If Hillary Clinton wants to run for president again and take the 2nd amendment to the ballot box I think she should do it.”
