Supreme Court Refuses to Consider Whether Second Amendment Protects Gun Silencers
Submitted by: David Williamson

The Supreme Court refused Monday to decide if the Second Amendment protects gun silencers such as the one used in last month's Virginia Beach shooting that killed 12 people.
Without comment or dissent, the justices turned away petitions from the operator of a Kansas army-surplus store and one of his customers who purchased an unregistered silencer in violation of federal law.

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But now, many states that had also banned switchblades under state laws have repealed those prohibitions, realizing in a cooler state of mind that the bans were ridiculous.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.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
