The only people that need silencers are military, government hitmen, hired assassins, murderers, and the mafia. Why is this even a question, the only purpose for a silencer IS TO KILL SOMEONE!!! I know it doesn’t make the shot completely silent BUT IT IS ONLY NEEDED TO KILL SOMEONE!!!! That’s it!!! No one else needs one. SO WHY MAKE IT EASIER TO LET PEOPLE GET THEM????? Oh wait, I forgot the nra paid off the gop so they can get more murders to happen—seriously if there were no murders or threat of murder we would not need guns for protection and that means less gun sales. Seriously, gun owners you’re concerned about your hearing, wtf is wrong with you????
