Thus, the “ominous precedent”…that shooters in future will use silencers (suppressors) on their weapons as well in order to increase their body count. And, of course, the more rabid advocates of the Second Amendment will announce that we mustn’t pass any laws against them.
The present writer is no expert on firearms. But, for a variety of boringly unimportant reasons he has had some experience with subsonic rounds, chiefly 9 mm and .22, delivered from suppressor equipped firearms. He is of the opinion that such weapons are not protected by the Constitution, and while they may have many excellent uses in certain aspects of hunting, target shooting, and assassinations, they are not a part of the normal, civilian shooter’s daily life. As such, they should be only sold under license and under careful supervision.
Just like a howitzer.
Only less noisy.
