It boggles me how the media has manipulated the suppressor so. And what's worth, it extends outside of hollywood as well.

Example:

Girlfriend and I went to the Infantry Museum at Ft. Benning. In the Vietnam hall, there is a LRRP exhibit, with an intergally suppressed Ruger Mk I.

My girlfriend recognized the pistol immediately as the predessecor to the Mk III she likes to shoot and then grew horrified when she read the description of the gun and the sobriquet of "hush puppy."

Now all suppressors are evil to her, regardlless of purpose.
