Silencers have been predominantly used to prevent hearing damage and to reduce noise pollution. These are excellent reasons to return silencers to there original legal status.
For criminal purposes, firearms are easy to silence with a pillow, blanket, or plastic liter bottle.
I'm not saying silencers are totally useless, my feeling
is that law enforcement has no business operating in our society with silencer-equipped weapons. Limit them to the firing range, I have no problem.
They have no business on the street.
