Silencers are one of the most commonly used tools in the fight against crime, but they have also become an important part of the arsenal of criminals, and have been a common target of gun control advocates.
With the recent spike in shootings and the potential for more deaths, the Israeli government is taking measures to crack down on the sale and use of silencers.
But there are many questions as to what happens when you are in need of a silencer in an emergency situation.

The Israeli government said that in the past month, three silencers were found in the Palestinian territories, the West Bank and Gaza, in a number of cases where the silencer had been smuggled into Israel illegally.
In addition, Israeli security forces arrested three Palestinians, including an 18-year-old who was caught with an automatic silencer.
In an email to The Jerusalem Times, a spokesperson for the Israeli Civil Administration said the Silencers Act was meant to reduce crime, while “it is not possible to regulate them all.”
“A person with a silencers permit can use them in public, as long as they do not carry it openly, and only when they are carrying it on a bicycle,” the spokesperson said.
“When it comes to firearms, the regulation of firearms is the responsibility of the government.
It is up to the local authorities to ensure they follow the law and act within the framework of their own regulations.”
In response to a question on whether the Israeli civil administration was aware of any cases where a silenced silencer was found in Israel, the spokesperson replied, “This is not the case, because we do not regulate the use of any silencers.”
“The legislation does not say anything about silencers on public transport, which is the most common mode of transportation in the country,” the statement continued.
“Therefore, if someone wants to buy a silencing device, it is not prohibited by law to buy them.”
It is up the local authority to make the necessary regulations and they will take the necessary action,” the response concluded.”
The government does not prohibit the purchase of silencer, it just says that they must be used in a lawful manner and not on public transportation.
“The spokesperson went on to say that “every municipality has its own rules for the use and ownership of firearms and there are strict regulations on how silencers are to be used, especially when they’re used in public transport.
“The Israeli Civil Ministry has not commented on the issue.
Meanwhile, a group of activists have launched an online petition to raise awareness about the issue of silencing, calling for the government to make it legal.”
We demand the government not to prohibit silencers, but only to regulate their use in a responsible manner,” the petition reads.”
If we’re not able to get the government’s attention on the issues, then we need to take action ourselves.
The more we raise awareness, the more pressure the government will be under to take a positive approach to the issue.
