Following the shooting at a municipal center in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in which a gunman killed 12 people, police found a high-capacity magazine and a silencer mechanism from the scene.
Virginia’s Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, said he is considering a package of gun-control legislation despite a pro gun-rights Republican controlled state legislature. Northam’s proposals include a ban on silencers and high-capacity magazines.
Trump said he’ll "seriously look" at banning gun silencers after the mass shooting in Virginia.
“Well, I’d like to think about it," Trump said in an interview with Piers Morgan on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. “I’m going to seriously look at it."
Trump said he didn’t "love" the idea of a ban. He is unhappy to see the frequency and severity of mass shootings in the U.S.
The Trump administration earlier this year banned bump stocks, devices that let a semi-automatic weapon fire like a machine gun.
