    Only for certain people.

    NJ is one of twelve states that ban civilian silencer possession. MI, KS and WA most recently amended their laws to ease restrictions on silencer possession/use.

    I wish a group with hearing loss would bring a civil suit against the states banning the ownership of suppressors.

    It's strange, there are some "less free" European countries that have no restrictions on suppressors, they're viewed for what they are - safety devices. Here in the land of the free we struggle to own them with some states outright banning their ownership.

    The reason they are still illegal in 12 states is because gun owners did not bother to say enough about it when they were banned and because they wish someone else would do something about it now. The last three states that eased restrictions did more than wish something was done, they actually did something about it.

    Most of those countries you speak of are also using Red Jacket technology, oh sorry 1970's washer and spacer technology. Many of the European suppressors are nothing more than ported shotgun barrels with pipe welded on and chore boy type media in between the barrel and tube. Yes they work, but not as effectively as a purpose built suppressor. Its like comparing a 2 liter bottle with t-shirts to a SS sparrow.

    Haven't y'all seen "Killer Elite"? Why waste money on a can when all you need is a loaf of bread :D

    And whether or not they admit it, I bet there are a few folks here who couldn't make a sandwich for lunch the day after they watched that movie lol.

    I hate my state.

    New Jersey, where adding a Flash Suppressor, Adjustable Stock, or BAYONET LUG to your AR-15 makes you a felon!

    What are you going to do about it? What has anyone done about it since 1994?
