Compensator on home defense

Legally what would happen if a home invader was shot with a pistol with a compensator?
In the eyes of the law is a compensator viewed as something that makes a firearm more deadly?

There is noting illegal under federal law regarding compensators. They are meant to help reduce recoil.
But, the prosecutor can try to twist anything to claim it makes the firearm more deadly.


Like @MikeBKY said, a prosecutor set on winning their case, will twist anything and everything. A good defense attorney will be able to articulate why you have a compensated firearm, and that the intruder forced their way into YOUR home with intent to harm you and your loved ones.
