?????????????Would the crowd have heard the gunsâ€™ report from 400 yards away, if the shooter used silencers, and fired from well inside his room?
However from less than 100 yards away and firing outside the window like he was the crowd would have heard it.
The victims might have heard the sonic boomsâ€" the snap like a ladyfinger firecracker going offâ€" as the bullets arrived at the concert still supersonic.
But would they recognize that as gunfire?
Would they know what direction itâ€™s coming from?
Even without a silencer well over half the the people didn't know it was gun fire until they saw people being shot or was told it was not fireworks but gun fire. Nor could anyone tell where it was coming from.
I think Hillary Clintonâ€™s got a legitimate point.
There â€œISâ€ additional risk in deregulating firearm silencers.
They can be used by criminals to make their crimes more effective, and to delay (or prevent) being pinpointed and confronted by cops.
So exactly what would change if they were deregulated?
P.S. I own silencers and have seen a lot of other ones used around me.
