Many people have been killed by guns with silencers, you just don't "hear" about it.
You know nothing about silencers. They're useless for hunting. You don't get any bullet expansion, and nil shock effect. A bow and arrow would be more effective.
That’s actually pretty significant considering the decibel system is a logarithmic scale; so, for example, 200 dB is 1000 times louder than 100 dB, not double, and a reduction of 40 dB is more like 1/100th of the original sound. However, for most commercially available fire arms and cartridges, this ends up only reducing the noise level to somewhere in the range of 130-150-ish dB for a supersonic cartridge and 117-130-ish dB for a subsonic cartridge. For reference on just how loud that is, an ambulance or police siren is typically between 100-140 dB. So this isn’t exactly the “whoosh” sound Hollywood depicts. Given that hearing loss can occur as low as 85 dB, it’s typically recommended that even with a silencer on a fire arm, that the shooter still wears some sort of hearing protection.
Gun "Silencers" Don't Make Them Anywhere Near Silent
You may have a bb gun but nothing more. You've watched too many action movies.
ANYONE who thinks a "silencer" actually a suppressor, makes a high powered rifle, or pistol for that matter silent is a few bricks short of a load.
TWELVE MINUTES from his first shot to the last. Police had located his room in brief period of time. Attempting to approach his room, one officer was shot. Since Paddock had stopped shooting, his room had to be approached with caution. Every room in the hall on the way to the shooters could have held another shooter and/or explosives. Later, you recall, a substantial amount of explosives was found in his car.
Spreading malicious lies and rumors as you are intentionally doing solves nothing and only damages efforts to control this type of attack.
Grow up, do some of your own research, don't just parrot what the DailyKOS, The Nation, and MediaMatters feeds to you.
Then, I guess it has no function whatsoever.
Silencers or suppressors? I bet you don’t know the difference… LOL
It was a miracle the shooter (another democrat) was stopped that quick.
You got a problem with that?
Maybe that's why nobody uses them.
