KS adopts a "European style" firearms law I can agree with...
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 08:19 AM by -..__...
hunting with silencers/suppressors (go NRA!!! :headbang:) ...

The Kansas Legislature has approved a bill that would allow the use of silencers for hunting, fishing and fur harvesting. The bill, supported by the National Rifle Association, is awaiting Gov. Sam Brownback's signature. The Hays Daily News reports that the bill received only one no vote in the Senate and was unanimously approved by the House last week.

Earlier discussion regarding the benefits on the use of silencers/suppressors for sporting and recreational purposes..

I'm just wondering why the legislature didn't go all the way and include shooting ranges in the bill?

3. Good. Noise pollution control...
Also, silencers can save a lot of people from hearing loss.

10. Right, since suppressors make a gun entirely silent.
It doesn't sound like you just discharged a firearm at all!

:sarcasm:

16. Real life silencers don't work the way they do in the movies.
In the movies they reduce a BANG to a phfft. In real life they reduce the BANG to a BANG.

13. "Use of silencers for ... fishing"?
How do you fish with a firearm, suppressed or otherwise?

17. You sit in a tree or stand above very clear water and shoot the fish.
You have to remember to offset for the light refraction. Use a large caliber. The concussion should knock the fish out and he floats to the surface. Friend in a boat collects the fish. Similar to fishing with dynamite.

21. Depend upon the angle with the surface of the water.
Shooting at a steep angle is no problem. Shooting at a shallow angle causes the bullet to ricochet, like a stone skipping on the water. It still isn't that bad if you know that it is clear down range.

23. Next we'll have Pro Helicopter Shooting Forum
Wouldn't be be even MORE fun if you could shoot animals from a helicopter WITH SILENCERS? Cuz what if they hear the gun shots. They might run. Where's the sport in that?

Yeah, because it's not like they would have heard the helicopter coming or anything...

Sigh. I pity your poor straw man, who is collapsing under the weight of his own idiocy...

28. I didn't know that silencers skewed right.
If so, why are they legal in socialist hotbeds like Finland and France?
