Why should firearm silencers be legalized for the general public?

Why were firearms silencers made illegal in the first place?

Why might you buy a firearm silencer if they're legalized?

Huh, another mass shooting with 58 or so deaths and hundreds injured in Las Vegas yesterday. The responses from politicians are the usual, but more to the point of this thread, legislation that would make firearm noise suppressors easier to get may not ever make it to the House floor.

Then again it could with the current Republican-controlled federal government. If done before the 2018 elections, it could become an issue -- maybe good for Republicans, maybe good for Democrats, it's getting very difficult to call these things.

Oh, and just for grins, the bill would deregulate cop-killer bullets. Yay, making life easier for criminals.

But aren't all cops evil racist white supremacists? Or Nazis, even? Why are you denying the innocent angels in places like Baltimore and Chicago a chance to defend themselves? YOU MONSTER!

No, no, and I'm not.

But I do get your attempt at humor. With a little bit more talent, maybe you could produce right-wing political cartoons. However, consider that a tide is turning, meaning that liberal-bashing won't be selling all that well. Part of the reason is that the audience is shrinking (generational arrivals/departures, changing minds), and the other part is that President Trump is accelerating the process.

Heh, while people were worrying about the government confiscating their weapons, Trump slithered into office and poses an actual threat to our nation. Oh yeah, and then there's Texas.

So what happens to liberal-bashing humor under these conditions? Let's just say a fire hose that has lost pressure is more turgid.

Anyway, there's still no logical argument for liberalizing the restrictions on firearm noise suppressors, aka, silencers, aka (by me) firearm mufflers. And as you, I see no reason for people to have cop-killer bullets. Well, other than criminals. Maybe SWAT? You know, since criminals can also buy body armor on sale at Outdoor Man. No questions asked, no liability allowed.
