To answer your question about Michigan allowing silencers, the real question would be why not? Why are we even regulating firearms in the first place?
Is it because we strongly believe that with a well regulated fire arms, we'll be safer or is it because the government doesn't want to fear us
I don't think it should be difficult to get firearms. If a bad guy wants to go on a rampage, finding the weapons necessary to do so is the least of
their worries. If it comes down to it, they could just become creative, after all what do you think the black market mercenaries do when they kill
people? Do you think they go through conventional channels to acquire their tools? No, they will stick to the black market and even become creative.
Pay everything in cash, that sort of thing.
Someone going on a rampage at a school or a mall is very, very improbable. In fact, why is this even something that people worry so much about?
Because it's been on the news lately. How often has it happened over the past 100-years? Too few to matter. What could be a solution? Here are two
Option 1) Allow everyone to carry their own firearm in any public setting with exception of government buildings that they deem that you can't.
Option 2) You set guards at every store entrance and forbid anyone from entering using the exits. Everyone that passes by, you pat them down. One line
for women, one line for men. This is how it's done in the Philippines.
You could even combine both options together if you wish. However, making it harder for criminals to obtain weapons is simply fairy tale talk. All
that it's doing is it's making it harder for normal people to obtain weapons, and regulate what they can and can't have and if they have an episode
of depression 10 years ago, the government has the right to revoke your firearms. This is not right, and it should not be.
Any push for gun control is a push towards a stronger, more defendable government and defenseless civilians. Our enemies are: The tyrant government,
the violent criminals, and invading nations. A simple pistol is not going to do much good against two of those, so think carefully about the things
you want civilians to own and at the current state of the US, it's at risk for so many things. Why restrict citizens at such a crucial time?
