Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday warned of new GOP-backed legislation to loosen restrictions on gun “silencers,” calling it a “dangerous mistake.” However, it took only three tweets for the New York Democrat to show she might need to do a little more research before posing as an expert on the issue...

Obviously, the term "silencer" is a misnomer. Its main use seems to be to add drama to a dull movie or fodder for a dull politician.
If you strive for accuracy, don't let the term "suppressor" stand alone in this context; use the term "sound suppressor."
And the term "gun suppressor" should only be used to refer to politicians.
Best of all, why not use a term that far more people are familiar with and that most accurately describes the function of the device? That term is "muffler." It does exactly the same thing in the same way on a car, motorcycle, lawn mower, firearm, etc. And it's used for the same reason: to protect the hearing of those around it.

This Democrat sweetheart was pro-gun when she represented upstate NY. When she became a Senator over al of NY suddenly she was ant-gun.

They should have stopped with "Congress shall make no Law..."
