Re: legal noise suppressors?
This whole issue of suppressor legality gets my scivvies all in a bunch. If you think about it, what logical reason is there to require any special permit? It's as stupid as a total gun ban. If the bad guys want to take someone out they are going to do it, and if they want to use a suppressor they will, regardless of the law.
So why do people want suppressors??? TO SAVE THEIR FREAKING EARS and not disturb the peace. Clearly, law abiding citizens would benefit more than criminals by the lifting of restrictions on suppressors. In fact a person should be allowed to use any device he makes at home at least on his own property, without any special stamp or permit. It all goes to a number of fundamental constitutional issues.
