I am 40 years old and suffer from a constant ringing in my ears and partial hearing loss due to the loud report from rifles and shotguns .
Supressors were included in the NFA because a few ignorant fools received their education from movies, instead of taking the time to learn the facts. Supressors do not "silence" any gun, and they are not tools used by criminals. Supressors simply reduce the sound a gun shot makes by anywhere from 20 decibels - 45 decibels.
If supressors were more readily available for purchase like they should be, I would not be living with hearing loss.
