I wonder if these same people realize that, should someone be interested in committing a crime with a suppressed firearm, that a large potatoe or a two ltr. soft drink bottle work almost as well as a purpose built suppressor.
No one would ever suspect what they are going to be used for and they are easy to dispose of after being used.
