MN: Minnesota Senate makes surprise turn to legalize gun silencers

Minnesota's Senate added language to a bill Thursday that would legalize gun silencers a surprise development as majority Democrats had shown little interest in changing the state's gun laws and a direct challenge to Gov. Mark Dayton's promise that such a measure would meet his veto pen.

The silencer language was added to a grab bag of policy changes that would also mandate external investigations for officer-involved deaths, set ground rules for law enforcement's use of drones and restore voting rights to felons after they're released from prison.

I'll continue to urge we all use "attenuator", "suppressor" or "muffler" instead of "silencer" when referring to these devices. The term "Silencer" was Mr. Maxim's branding. Unfortunately it was seized upon by every dime fiction writer and hollywood movie director in need of plot magic. (We've all seen B movie perps with "silencers" on a revolver getting a teeny "pop" when they kill someone). The general public still believes this fiction and many other gun-related ones.

But most importantly suppressors address a chronic public health issue, "progressive hearing loss" stemming from the high noise level environments most of us inhabit. Suppressors also make shooters nice neighbors by keeping most of the range noise contained.
