    An empty 2-liter soda bottle will work pretty well.

    Well, at least their hearing will be OK as they are gunned down.

    Yes, because obviously hunting down kids with guns is a sport in far left circles - that's how this guy would know.

    Still illegal.

    I'm a law abiding citizen.

    But, if I weren't, I could build a suppressor in about an hour with a maglite flashlight and some automotive freeze plugs.

    The law only stops law abiding citizens.

    Yes. I should have mine in four months if the gods may be in my favor. Whenever it comes I’ll be sure to post a shit ton of pics of little kids shooting a surpressed Glock in an “ I’m the NRA” T-shirt for ya..

    1. TECHNICALLY they are right - 'Silencers' do protect hearing. (True but meant as a joke)

    2. TECHNICAL FACT: A 'Silencer' Never killed anyone. (True but meant as a joke)

    3. IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, I personally don't see the need for anyone to have one...but that is my OPINION. I do not speak for anyone else.

    'One' could argue that a 'Silencer' is 'similar' to a laser site for a weapon - an 'accessory'.

    On the other side 'one' could argue that a 'silencer' could make committing crimes easier. Taking this argument to the extreme, so could BULLETS.

    'One' could argue that making 'Silencers' illegal would not stop those who want them from having them, like with anything else.
    - The Internet is an awesome yet 'frightening' tool. In less than 10 seconds I found this:

    You do realize that suppressors dont actually silence a gunshot right?
    Of course you dont,what am I thinking,you're an ignorant liberal.

    Lookup the equivalent of 133 decibels,the sound level of a suppressed .308

    You're like that idiot Diana DeGette from Colorado....you dont know shit about firearms.

    That is a red herring argument. And a very bad one.

    There are a lot of reasons.
    One it would make target shooting more comfortable and two you dont want to wear ear protection while hunting because you cant hear the game approaching.
