Who knows. I know somebody whose grandfather used to take him shooting rats at the town dump, using a .30-06 with a silencer made out of a lawnmower muffler. I know any number of cops out here who are gun nuts and would probably like to have a silencer just because it attaches to a gun.
Personally, I don't expect to get assassinated by a Carlton cop with a silenced gun... That kind of behavior can generally be expected only from the Feds, or the LAPD. Local cops will run anyone that crazy out of town - whether or not they're on the police force.

I think it's a bad idea when uniformed or undercover law enforcement and gun silencers are intertwined.
There is a very good reason silencer possession is a federal crime. It should apply to everyone.

Last year, here in make do Mass., a pair of teenagers shot the fourteen year old girl's mama (she wouldn't let them live together), using a head of lettuce as a silencer! Who said ingenuity was dead!
