Perhaps the most accurate statement would be "I need a way to protect my hearing and that of those around me. I want a suppressor to do it." So? What makes it anyone else's business if I do that with earplugs, muffs, a suppressor, or some combination of all of the above?

So what if others know that I'll be shooting? Should I not be considerate of them? Should I be required to impair my own hearing (such as with muffs or earplugs), when a suppressor would serve the same function without doing that?

Now, Kochman, I've asked this a few times, and you've just flat ignored it: What does need have to do with it? Why do suppressors "need" to stay on the NFA list?
