Think it will lead to greater regulation of silencers? I think an arguement could be made that use of a silencer makes it more difficult to locate active shooters.

Anyone who has shot a suppressor knows that statement is false. Of course Hillary has already said that but so what. Anyone that thinks a suppressor makes a firearm that quiet is misinformed.

You do realize they are not "silencers" they are sound suppressors. You can not silence a gun but you can lower the volume of sound coming from the barrel.

Shooting from a window 32 stories up has its own qualities in obfuscating the location if done correctly.
This guy didn't care. He just wanted to kill.

And CNN is reporting "high quantities of explosives" were located in his house. Those high quantities of explosives were "a couple lbs of tannerite" according to the sheriff. SMH on the lies already being spread by the media.

Pegasaurus, I agree with you. But on my NFA paperwork, under the section "Type of Firearm" it says "silencer" on it.

Hard to say, but i'd bet, after this is all over, high cap mags, assault weapons will be looked at again!
Remember its the idiot behind trigger, not the weapon!

One thing for sure, 5.56, and 7.62 will be flying off the shelves here in the next few days!

I know. And with the right setup / combination, they can work pretty darn well. When used on an auto loaded firearm, they just make the noise level tolerable but far from silent.
The uneducated think these things are like what they see the movies and make no noise at all.

They are called suppressors, not silencers. They would have (IMO) no impact on finding the shooter, but they would mitigate the damage done to the shooter's hearing up to the point he was killed by police or took his own life. The only argument to be made is by the misinformed.
