Only Hitmen and Serial Killers Need Silencers
It’s true. Only hit men and serial killers have any possible need to silence a firearm. Just ask Alexander Zaitchik.
He’s the author of a Salon.com article that for some inexplicable reason has started to make the rounds of anti-gun social media sites (and thankfully so). Unless you’re a CIA assassin or sniper with a black budget specops team there’s really no benefit to suppressing any gun – at least any gun a civilian should be allowed to own. Salon has long been known for its unbiased journalistic integrity, including a true masterpiece about how guns kill women2 written by “reproductive justice correspondent” Katie McDonogh. Quite a while back they published an article entitled Silencers: the NRA’s latest big lie1. In it the author explains the many evils of the silencer, which is of course typically the choice of “…Mafiosi hits, hidden snipers, and special ops ambush teams.” He even warns us of the dangers presented by the oncoming Second Silencer Age.
“The Second Age that produced these tools was commenced not by a charming dynastic American industrial engineer with wide interests like [Hiram] Percy Maxim. Rather it was born in the rural Georgia kill-gadget lab of a notoriously cracked and ruthless CIA black ops contractor, known in gun circles as the Wizard of Whistling Death.”
The Wizard of Whistling Death (aka Mitch WerBell). Holy shit. Clearly the kind of person who’d use a silencer is exactly the same sort who’d be into murder-for-hire, bestiality and post-necrophiliac necrophagia. The fact is, criminals would love to get their hands on silencers. The proliferation of silencers has already started a slaughter the likes of which we haven’t seen since Genghis Khan made it legal to own a composite bow and thumb ring without a special permit. Grunts: necrophagia.
It’s bad enough that far-right fringe groups (like the one that spawned the militia member pictured below) are able to use loophole trusts and gunshows to “reduce their signature” and make murder more easy.
This ongoing campaign by the NRA and their stooges, the American Silencer Association (now known as the American Suppressor Association in a clear attempt to act like they’re not responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people), can only have one possible outcome – an increased body count when it comes to an active killer event.
“By muffling the noise generated with every shot by sonic booms and gas release, a silencer would provide a new degree of intimacy for public mass murder, delaying by crucial seconds or minutes the moment when someone calls the police after overhearing the strange bangs coming from Theater 4 or Classroom D. The same qualities that make silencers the accessory of choice for targeted assassination offer advantages to the armed psychopath set on indiscriminate mass murder.”
That’s no mere hyperbole. If anything, Zaitchik is understating the problem. Murderers have gone to great length for decades to obtain silencers before committing mass murder. Unable to legally obtain one, many sociopaths will build or cobble together some sort of “field expedient” home-made silencer. Look at this degenerate bastard. He was caught on a nanny cam using a cat’s ass to muffle the report of his weapon (undoubtedly immediately prior to embarking on a killing spree at the behest of the CIA or maybe FEMA).
This is why we can’t have nice things. He’s not the first crook to use silencers in the commission of a crime. Remember when Officer Davis killed Lou Guzman with his silenced Colt Python? That’s all we need – a bunch of silenced .38 specials in the hands of street thugs, to say nothing of all those rifles shooting armor piercing M855 bullets. It’s bad enough when used by professional assassins or cartel “specialists.”
The American Suppressor Association has an in depth Education page – that’s where you should start.
SilencerCo runs a very informative page called Yes, Silencers Are Legal and have some of the best media out there. #fightthenoise
Advanced Armament Corp. runs a page called CAN U – The Silencer University; it has some online quizzes you – or some anti-silencer window licker – could take, if you can talk ’em into it.
There are no doubt many others.
That’s all for now. You don’t have to thank us, though your adulation is well deserved. We wake up every morning this awesome and we’re not inclined to apologize for it. ______________________________________________________________
