tangoprime said:Sound suppressed weapons are fairly commonplace for hunting/sport shooting in Europe. The stigma of suppressed or "silenced" weapons being bad guy evil guns comes from hollywood. They're better on the shooter's ears, don't disturb others as much (in the case of ranges or varmit hunting), and don't scare away every bit of game for miles. Also, suppressed weapon vs. non-suppressed weapon, want to guess which does more harm? Bullets fired from suppressed weapons are generally much lower velocity, thus have less energy than non-suppressed.Rogue Trooper said:What possible use could you have for a silenced rifile?The Event said:Under the US definition of an "assault weapon" yes I do.Friendly Lich said:This device would only apply to assault weapons. Do you own assault weapons?
High capacity semi automatic shotgun
High capacity semi automatic .22 rifles
And a couple of silenced rifles too.
I'm not actually in the US though but I suspect there will be people who are who are in the same circumstance as me.
Again, knee jerk reaction from someone who doesn't know what they're talking about, but sees something that looks scary because that's how they've been conditioned. Thanks for helping prove a point.
Misinformed / uninformed people about firearms make me sad.
