Suppressors were only banned during the great depression to prevent poaching. (Silencers is a Hollywood term). They do not “make guns deadlier,” and in fact decrease a firearm’s performance. A suppressor limits noise pollution thereby protecting shooters and populations that live around gun ranges. The argument that mass shooters would use suppressors is absurd, because: suppressors cause firearms to overheat faster, and trap more carbon inside the operating system which leads to more jams/malfunctions.
