|The suppressor 'ban' is the same kind of knee-jerk reaction as the switchblade ban in the 1950s because of public reaction to "West Side Story". The government used that bias to impose the ban without any resistance.|
But now, many states that had also banned switchblades under state laws have repealed those prohibitions, realizing in a cooler state of mind that the bans were ridiculous.
I don't see much public outcry in defense of the availability of suppressors, and I don't hold out much hope that they won't eventually be eliminated entirely. The least harm will be done if the ATF just leaves them as they are under current regulations.
