The major thing that makes it easier for “active shooters to inflict serious harm” are gun free zones. I would say that most all who oppose sound suppressor so want to keep gun free zones, especially in schools “for the children”.
Sooooooo, let me see if I get this right; we cant have silencers because they make guns super silent assassin weapons that no one can hear, but when someone wants to use them to protect their hearing they don’t do shit and you will need to wear earplugs anyway? I have no idea how that even works.
Excuse me, sir, but could you hold on for a second while I put my earplugs in? While I’m doing that could you use that time to put on a little brighter t-shirt so I can see you better. My eyes are going as I get older and I’d just like a better target than your dark sweatshirt. I’ll be with you in a sec.
