I agree, it is not a constitutional issue, however, they should be legal.

Unlike what the movies show, they do not make a gun silent, it merely muffles the sound to where it will not blow your eardrums out, you can still hear it loud and clear.

Don't we have the right to remain silent?

Why are these things even legal?

Be that as it may, thank heaven for small favors.

A plastic quart bottle can be a silencer ? You want to make all them illegal too ?

Then there is the pillow !!! Don't let Mike Lindell be against you. He might put you to sleep !!!

If a person gets enough time on the range the person they shoot shouldn't be a witness !!!

Then if someone is going to the monkey house for murder do they really care about the suppressor ?

Just more ignorant statists seeking to impose THEIR will upon an action or inaction that does not encroach upon the rights or property of another. Each and every statist who seeks to impose THEIR will, beliefs, morality and dictates upon society when the action or inaction they seek to prohibit does not encroach upon the rights or property of another should rot in hell for eternity. After all, what is a natural right? A natural right is any action or inaction that does not encroach upon the rights or property of another.


But then again, that's just MY opinion, for what it's worth.

I'm all for that.

Silencers are a misnomer. It's not like someone's gonna be able to shoot someone in an alleyway without others nearby knowing.

All it does is reduce the hearing risks for law abiding gun owners.

Hey bad guy...stop breaking into my house, I have to put my ear plugs in so I can shoot you and not worry about my hearing....


Typical leftist anti-gunner logic....

Unfortunate but all the murderers ruined what could have been a good thing.
No...too many people have seen too many movies actually and believe the fictional depiction of silencers! LOL

What sounds would those be? I wear ear protection at the range and I'm able to hear everything I need to hear.
