    Supreme Court refuses to hear challenge to U.S. gun silencer law

    Supreme Court refuses to hear challenge to U.S. gun silencer law

    June 10 (UPI) -- The U.S. Supreme Court declined requests Monday to consider a challenge that says firearm silencers are protected under the Second Amendment, and therefore owners should not be required to register them.

    Two cases are behind the challenge, from two men who were convicted of failing to register their silencers. The high court's unanimous decision affirms an appeals court ruling that upheld the men's convictions, saying silencers are not "bearable" arms protected by the Constitution.

    The case was brought by Army surplus store owner Shane Cox, who made unregistered homemade silencers, and customer Jeremy Kettler, who bought one. They were convicted of violating the 1934 National Firearms Act, which requires silencers be registered and taxes paid to the government. The law makes it harder to acquire or sell a silencer, but does not constitute a ban. Eight states and Washington, D.C., do ban silencers.

    The ruling came less than two weeks after authorities say a worker used a handgun and silencer to kill 12 people in Virginia Beach, Va. on May 31.

    COMMENT:-

    What an absolutely asinine ruling!!! Everyone knows that the Founding Fathers were 100% on board with the Original Intent that silencers were an essential part of the ability of the average person to resist an oppressive and tyrannical socialist government that had abandoned all traditional (and biblically sanctioned) morality and social order. Not only that but silencers are an absolutely essential adjunct to any hunter's equipment and here we have a bunch of left-wing, libtard, socialist, pinko, commie judicial activists trampling all over every American's 2nd Amendment **R*I*G*H*T*S**!!!

    Isn't it time that Mr. Trump tossed them all out of office and put in some **R*E*A*L** "People's Judges" so that the country can return to the peace, prosperity, economic order, and social order that it had when the Founding Fathers first established the world's first (and still only) Republic "With Liberty and Justice For All" (as long as you were White, Male, and Christian)?

    People murdered by a madman with a silencer don't pay money to gun lobbies. But madmen with guns support the NRA. That's all we need to know.

    Actually, silencers are quite useful, but too many people believe all the Hollywood hype that silencers "silence" guns. They don't. They take about 10-15 db off the noise. The purpose of silencers is to protect hearing. The Supreme Court must have been at the gun range without ear protection, because they are certainly deaf on this issue.

    James Bond movies lied to you. ‘Silencers’ should be mandatory, not banned.

    How does wanting to save my hearing = Being a mad man?

    If that was the real issue, people would simply go with the easy (and cheaper) solution of wearing a headset or earplugs.

    Your statement sounds more like an excuse than a real need...

    Oddly enough it is quite uncivilized in the UK to hunt without one.

    Does not work well in a hunting scenario.

    Aaaaah, so the Virginia Beach shooter was using a silencer only to protect his own hearing!

    It makes so much sense now! Thanks for the explanation!
