WATCH: Owlie and Hootie Explain the Push to Deregulate Gun Silencers [Saunders Cartoon]

As if being used for potato chips and Hooters wasn’t enough, the American Silencer Association is using an owl logo to promote silencers.

Editors’ note: Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. This week’s animation debunks the gun lobby’s recent push to de-regulate silencers. The animation, as always, was written and animated by Zina Saunders.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.
