Larry Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation gives us the important facts in regards to firearm suppressors:
U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) tweeted that the loud report of a firearm is a “safety feature.” He seems to think that the sound of gunfire was engineered as a means to ensure everyone around them knew there was gunfire nearby.
A 10-year study found 153 crimes committed with suppressors and in only 15 of those crimes was a suppressor actually used. Here’s more perspective. That same study showed criminals used suppressors in less than 0.1 percent of homicides, 0.00006 percent of felonies and 0.1 percent of armed robberies.
As a practical matter, suppressors add length to a firearm, making it harder to conceal.
Senator Murphy is evil and/or has crap for brains.
