I hope this gets passed.

Here's a comparison of different rounds, .22lr is the round being shot in the video, while 5.56 and 7.62 are more "standard" cartridge sizes.
I can't really speak to the compression of the video, but it is worth noting that post-processing appears to have normalized the sound so that there's a max volume (can be seen by the volume increase after the round has been fired), which means that the audio has been edited anyway.
I don't get the regulation - suppressors are not magical tools to make a gun silent. You can still hear the gunfire, just not so loud that it damages your ears so much.
I wish i could shoot more guns
what most people itt fail to realize is that suppressors really make hunting and target shooting easier on the enviroment (people around the range, hunting area, hunting dogs etc)
but sure, just say "lol gun owners are fucking retards lol!!!!"
Right, I don't care for guns but I do give a shit about hearing loss and I gotta step in and hopefully save some of you from a real shit mistake that i made.
The human ear is at risk of permenant damage from 85 decibels and up, you are all but guarenteed damage of some kind from 115db, a supressor alone does not do shit to make the sound level safe, in fact even with ear plugs, ear muffs, a supressor, and subsonic rounds combined. You are still at risk simply because of your proximity to the breach. They're too loud no matter what you do.
Wear all the hearing protection you can get or you will fuck yourself.
At best that'll only be hearing loss, pray to fucking god you don't get Tinnitus.
The only time I've shot without hearing protection was about once a year during firearms training for work. They teach you to shoot a couple rounds without ear protection once a year or so, so you remember the sound of a firearm and how loud it is, so you're not caught unaware or startled when you use a firearm in the defense of your own life.
I'm in no way a gun expert (As this post is going to prove) and I'm usually anti-guns, but I can see where people are coming from.
Would there be a way to regulate the types of suppressors, for example would it be possible to regulate supressors for fully and semi automatic weapons while removing it for single shot weapons like rifles which I'm guessing is what most people use for hunting when they use guns. This seems like a solourion to those worried about crime and mass shooting response time, while also keeping hunter's ears intact?
For all the bullshit and outright harm the all GOP congress is going to do, at least they'll have the right idea here.
'Tis the silver lining on the shitstorm clouds, eh boys?
The other problem with purchasing a suppressor beyond the $200 tax stamp is the waiting times. I've never had the privilege of being able to afford anything that requires you to jump through a bunch of hoops (especially in Maryland), but the time it takes to get suppressors is really ridiculous. I was buying magazines in WV once and they had their safe full of suppressors that had been sold months ago and were just waiting for the paperwork to come in.
Would be nice if SBR/SBS weapons get taken off the list while they're at it.
While I don't necessarily believe there's going to be a crime wave of "silenced" weapons, the benefits don't outweigh the risks in my opinion.
You're aware its still loud, right?
The increase in available suppressors isn't going to do much since it's vastly easier and less expensive to use a soda bottle stuffed full of wet newspaper, which is also significantly easier to dispose of.
There is absolutely no downside to public safety via suppressors. The only issue I see happening is a marginal increase in poaching.
What a suppressor can do can already be done, albeit not as well, with an empty 2 liter and some old rags. If a gang banger gave a shit about being silent, he wouldn't go to a gunshop to buy a can, hed just fill an empty beer can with rags and use that.
Anyone seeing the deregulation of suppressors as bad either has shares in the suppressor market and doesnt want to see the deregulation of them cause the market to plummit, or doesnt know what the fuck theyre talking about.
That would be like me being pro-brexit despite not knowing jack shit about it.
Do they even bother threading civilian guns or are you guys just going to have to buy new guns if you can't get your current guns threaded? Will this also make it legal to strap a bottle to the end of your gun like in Max Payne 3?
When I first shot a gun in an indoor range with my dad's fancy noise cancelling earpro, I was still surprised by how loud guns are. It's also probably important to note that you can't just stick suppressors on any gun without a threaded barrel.
