It it would have suppressed about half his sound for about what 15 to 20 rounds? He was pretty far up and shooting in a noisy environment.

Wait silencers aren't like in the movies? Where any rifle or large hand gun can be made as quiet as a squeaky door hinge... Then what's the point of them? I think someone should show Hillary Spy Hard.

If people knew about that you could get those evil pillows outlawed once and for all!!

Not half, 35db for a gun that's 165db. So when you factor in the echo of the area it was pretty much worthless. Plus at fully automatic as reports say the guy modified his gun his silencer was not made to withstand that heat.

And there's differences in how a gun sounds up close and the bullet traveling, which a silencer does nothing for. Witnesses all said they heard it but assumed it was fireworks. Which most people surprised by gunfire say.

It's ok, guys. He's white so it's not terrorism. Nothing to see here but a mentally ill lone wolf.

Terrorism has a solid definition that isn't "mass murder". I keep seeing simpletons saying "Why won't they call it or Las Vegas terrorism but called Manhattan terrorism last week so fast? OMG RACISM!" Probably because the guy left a note in the rental truck saying "I did it to support ISIS" and was ranting about them in the hospital. Just a hunch. Paddock's motives are still unknown and we don't know about this guy. If it comes out he did it for religious or political reasons, then it fits the definition of terrorism. If it comes out they had other motives then it is mass murder. Race has nothing to do with it. The last white church shooter Dylan Roof fits the definition of a terrorist because he had political motivation behind the murders.

We could ask the survivors if they felt any terror.

Looks like it's a murder-suicide on a farm.

The 4 kids were autistic.

It's the worst shooting in Australia since the Port Arthur Massacre in 1996.

His ragequitting the game was a little excessive.

His name was Dave Katz and came from Baltimore. He'd traveled to the Madden tournament for years and won it last year.

If I was playing EA sports games I'd shoot people too, regardless of outcome of game!!

But seriously, I think I'm raging with some swearing from time to time and 2 times in my life thrown a controller.
I know a lot of people who constantly rage at games and it's like Jesus christ, do something else if it makes you that miserable.
