Effing impressionable Trump "looking at" banning "silencers" now...sigh

Nothing worse than policy determined in the wake of tragedy

How many tragedies need to happen before we start changing laws?

Would banning suppressors have any appreciable effect on your life or the life of your loved ones?

To play devils advocate, would banning them have stopped this VA Beach disgruntled worker?

Yep, we've totally not changed any gun laws.

Also, what's the point of banning suppressors? There's literally no reason it should be illegal to make guns slightly quieter. They certainly aren't more dangerous when you drop their decibels a bit.

New rule, you can't talk about banning silencers until you understand what they do

Please point out where in the constitution it mentions your right to have a suppressor.

I don't think that's how the constitution works. Point out where it says it's up to the government if you can have one or not.

It's an asinine thing to ban. It drops a gunshot by about 24. Big deal. That's about the difference between a jet taking off and being next to a garbage truck. It's not stealthy, it's mildly quieter. If anything, it makes concealing a weapon more difficult as it adds a significant length.

(edited to add "have one" to the end of the first sentence)

Ethics aside, I'm not sure how this is legitimate from a legal side.


Isn’t Warren v D. C. Police the case that clears Peterson of a duty to protect the students as individuals?

And what did a suppressor contribute to his rampage? The cops were able to find and engage him quickly.

He had a suppressed 45 and one without one. The suppressed one would still sound like a Hilti nailer or a 22. Unless you conclude that the softer crack of a 22.

The suppressor probably made it easier to locate him as when indoors, a large caliber handgun round reverberates and makes determining the exact location of the shooter difficult. The suppressed gunfire would be much easier to pinpoint.

So...what's the point in having one then? If they choose to ban then it will have negligible effect is what you're saying right? So then let them have at it.

Also, I'm not quite sure you know how the constitution and laws work...

Calm down snowflake, I frankly don't GAF about suppressors. They really have no tangible value to anyone outside of the military for the exact reasons you stated. The only reason to have one is to say that you have one which is the exact same reason to have many of the weapons and associated weapon accessories on the market. All you're doing is making a case that banning them won't really change much.

That was my thought...which is why I was confused when this happened.

Are you for real, Sam? If it will have no negligible effect, that is reason enough that it shouldn't be done. It would be a waste of time, and in turn more useful legislation will not be passed as the clowns in DC try and do this.

As to why have one? You can shoot without needing hearing protection, or even better you can shoot with hearing protection and reduce the risk to your hearing. Or, my personal favorite reason, because you can.

And it sounds like you may be the one confused about how the Constitution and laws work. The Constitution places limits on what the federal government can do, it does not list things that citizens may own. Can you point out any phrase in the Constitution that lists what a citizen may buy or own?

Calm down snowflake, I frankly don't GAF about suppressors. They really have no tangible value to anyone outside of the military for the exact reasons you stated. The only reason to have one is to say that you have one which is the exact same reason to have many of the weapons and associated weapon accessories on the market.

If banning them won't change anything, then there's simply no reason to ban them. If there's no reason to ban them, it's a stupid waste of time and freedoms to do so.
