    At least ABC called them suppressors and not silencers.

    Yes, but what is a "hort-barrled rifle" ?

    Well, Hiram Maxim, who invented them 120-something years ago, called them silencers.

    The National Firearms Act of 1934, and the amendments to it in the Gun Control Act of 1968, call them 'silencers.'

    If ABC News had called 'em silencers, they would not be in error.

    That is from the original publication and appropriately linked back. Might go ask them.

    From later in the article:
    "Authorities also say Kryscuk, using an alias, mailed weapons from Idaho to Jacksonville, North Carolina. Documents also say Kryscuk shipped the short-barreled rifle to Collins. Court documents say the rifle went to Pennsylvania."

    So they are really silencers and not suppressors. That is really good to know.
