Trump says he will have 'serious look' at banning silencers on guns because he doesn't like 'idea' of them as he defends right to own semi-automatic weapons that can be a 'tremendous amount of fun'

President Trump has said he is considering banning gun silencers but defended the right to own semi-automatic rifles as people 'have a tremendous amount of fun' using them for sport.

Trump said he was 'going to seriously look at' banning the devices used to lessen the noise of gunfire after 12 people were shot dead by a killer using a suppressor in Virginia Beach last week.

He also claimed many Americans have AR-15 rifles for 'entertainment' and that if civilians in the Bataclan shooting in Paris had guns the terror attack 'would have never happened'. 

The president was responding to questions from Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain today about gun violence in the US.
