When I posted my response, you had asked:

(Mind you, I'm not fussing about the later addition. I'm just pointing out that it wasn't there when I posted.)

What part about my response doesn't make sense. Suppressors are intended to reduce decibel levels. The extent of knowledge on the part of my hunting or shooting knowledge makes no difference in how loud a given gun is. Which part of that confuses you?

Perhaps we should all shoot with suppressors. If it weren't for the cost & paperwork involved, I'd be glad for suppressors to be standard gear.

If you think that want and need are "typically interchangeable," I'll reccommend Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th Edition. You can pick it up at Amazon.

Not only are they not interchangeable concepts, lack of "need" is at best a questionable reason on which to base a law.

I sincerely doubt that we'd be laughed out of much of anywhere.
