Gun Silencers (Suppressors) Are An Issue : To Regulate OR Not. (Video)

If you have watched any television show or movie in the theater about crime, the mob, you will see a number of people slinking around in the middle of the night hunting down someone to bring underworld justice to the opposition.

As this video points out, nearly all criminal activity using a firearm does not use a suppressor. Why then is it so difficult to obtain one? Easy, those that believe they are smarter then most of us have decided we don't need these objects in our daily lives.

The problem that arises of course is if a suppressor is used it by a criminal in committing a crime, they don't have to worry about getting approval from our betters to have a suppressor.

Underreported: How Gun Silencers Became a Health Issue

Most people only know about silencers from what they see in the movies—a stealthy gun accessory that helps criminals more easily kill by suppressing the sound of the gunshot. But silencers, some say, is a misleading way to describe these firearm accessories. Why? Because they don’t actually silence the sound of a gunshot.

In a brand new video series, “Underreported,” The Daily Signal digs into the controversy surrounding silencers—or “suppressors,” as gun advocates prefer to call them. We explore why firearm suppressors are so heavily regulated; speak with Sen. Mike Crapo, a Republican from Idaho who’s leading the charge to lift these regulations; and head to the National Rifle Association to see how they actually work.

Watch the video and share your feedback about whether Congress should take on this issue on The Daily Signal’s Facebook page.
