You sir, should get your information from somewhere besides Hollywood movies.
In most of the world, suppressors are cheap and legal and... wait for it... REQUIRED for use in some hunting scenarios.
They are not and never have been the tools of assassins. They do not and never have "silenced" gunshots. They were only added to the NFA because they "compromised" (sound like a current word?), knowing that what was on the proposed NFA (handguns!) would never allow the bill to pass, so they dropped handguns and added suppressors as a compromise.
Drop the Hollywood assassin bullcrap argument.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
