    And in the Pacific northwest, no less... wow.

    And citizens were concerned. I just don't understand... why would citizens call up expressing concern that police were going to use suppressors? I mean, seriously... what are you concerns? What in the world about that would make an average citizen worried? Can anyone answer that? Are they worried that criminals are going to take them from the police? Hell, police have select-fire weapons, and I don't see (or hear of) regular citizens calling up expressing concerns.

    Just more reaction to the inflammatory statements of the media and politicians who try to demonize common-use devices, I suppose. People cringing just because "silencers are evil"?

    IIRC, isn’t it a crazy WA state law that you can own a suppressor, but as soon as you put it on a rifle it’s illegal?

    I'm a believer of the rifle suppressor.

    Spokane (pronounced Spo-can) is in East WA near Idaho and may be in the same State as Seattle but is in a different world politically and culturally.

    For as liberal as Washington state is, there are a ton of gun clubs and ranges. One of our members just moved here from WA and I am helping a family liquidate the estate of a relative that was from there. They all can name off a dozen or so clubs in the area.
