    Why? Are you concerned about the shooter damaging his eardrums?

    Both side are wrong here. The movie silencers are not reality. In reality the sounds isn’t silenced that much. So the silencer argument is BS.

    On the other end, it does muzzle a little bit of the noise. In the Vegas shooting that little bit of sound muzzle could have made people’s reactions less quick, which could have up the casualties.

    There is no good reason for the silencer. If it is about harm to hearing then there are easy alternatives to use. Air plugs. I use them every time I go shooting.

    Why doesn't the army use silencers?

    They don't work on AR 15s. The noise just travels out of the open bolt. Silencers arent practical for guns you are going to fire a lot of rounds out of. They stop working after a few shots, so youve got to clean the silencer before it'll work again.

    Silencers are best on subsonic rounds, which the military doesnt really use. They might exist in some special forces armories, but that would be about it.

    France? Dude France has the strictest laws for guns let alone silencers. What screwed France is the flooding guns from the eastern European blocks. It was almost possible to see a gun or hear about a gun shooting.
    My brother in law was a policeman, he wasn't even allowed to carry gun off duty. And he never got to draw his gun for almost 30 years.
