    Are you aware that Hiram Maxim (the inventor) called it a silencer and his patent says "silencer"? We all know it only reduces the sound and nothing is 100% silent, but the aversion to what is factually the correct name for the device is silly in my opinion. Maybe I'm just not cool enough to say "supressor."

    It's like magazine/clip.

    I wasn't there, but I'm betting that the suppressor/silencer made no difference there.
    A homicidal maniac was the determining factor.
    Followed by no one having a gun to oppose him.

    And if we're using the criteria of this one shooting, to ban suppressor/silencers, are we going after all things that kill this much people nationwide?
    Cause that's a LOT of stuff to ban.

    Except people think that "silencer" is wrong when it's actually correct.

    It's similar to a situation in which I say or write, "Just between you and me," and some helper "corrects" me with the all too common grammar failure, "just between you and <cough> I <cough>."

    I'm with Rhino on this one. I always call mine silencers.

    My neighbors hate it too. "Are those even legal?"
    Yet if my wife says suppressor, my neighbors just ignore it and nod because they don't really understand that a suppressor IS a silencer.

    What? A silencer and a suppressor are the same thing, simply two different nouns for the same physical item. While a clip and a magazine are two different completely different things.

    Not to derail the thread OP, but I'm still buying them, the ban talk hasn't had me going the other way at all. My question is if there is a ban what is everyone who already owns them doing? It's not like guns, there is a registry with silencers. Is it going to be mass non compliance or are people going to fight if it comes to it? Most NFA guys are a different breed of gun owner and they tend to be my favorite!

    Go back in history and look.
    Manufacturers and designers have used both terms interchangeably.
    Even Army manuals.
