    "Shall not be infringed" Period. Govt has been doing all kinds of infringing and we have been letting them get away with it. Time to stop it, roll it all back to where it belongs.

    And if we have any smarts we will get rid of the Fed Reserve and the Income tax while we are at it. And if we want to control this wild beast we call government. We need to make it impossible for them spend money they do not have, that we don't send them.

    Like a crack or meth addict that learns how to get a big pile of cash out of an ATM every 10 minutes. It ain't gonna be pretty what he does.

    You're missing an option:

    "NO, as I have no interest in owning one."

    Used them in the military and in LE. No interest in them nor need for one. However, I am 100 freaking percent in favor of them not being an NFA item and believe there should be zero background hassle checks for the purchase of one.

    And they would need to be much more affordable.

    silencer OR suppressor ?

    You can't silence faster than sound, IOW muzzle velocity of about 1,100 feet per second.

    Yes, I buy one to avoid annoying the neighbors - no paperwork of any kind- like a tractor muffler.

    Its not an option here at all. But if it was it would be good to not worry about annoying noise for myself or others.

    They are Silencers per ATF regulations and per the original patent from Hiram Maxim. No need for silly wordplay.

    Shouldn't be any paperwork. Should be able to make your own too.

    Also, call it what you wish either silencer or suppressor. Either is correct.

    Legalising them for hunting large animals is the dumbest thing they've done inmichigan.

    Usedto be the .270 going off at 2 am was a dead give away...

    now its dump a 30 round magazine in a silenced AR using a bump fire. really makes walking in the woods at sunset a "carry large automatic" proposition

    What you carrying? UZI, AR, FAL ? you did say automatic not a semi right?

    You know I lived in Rural Oregon

    - we never heard 270 or any other large rounds from the local poachers

    But we did from the City folk.

    Arrows or a 22 LR was all that was needed to feed your family.

    The other problem with City Folk was just taking back straps and leaving the rest to rot.

    Still makes me angry.

    Silencers are off the shelf items here and everyone uses them. They are just no big deal at all. It makes no sense to me why they are restricted in your country, its like running your car without a muffler.

    Noise pollution causes global warming, that's the ticket.

    Should be an accessory, like say replacement grips or a flashlight.

    I don't believe a word of what you typed. Silencers have been legal for hunting here and there are no issues because of it. Poachers have always used 22s. And they only fire once. You can't triangulate a single shot. Gun owners are their own worse enemy.
