Theres only a few reason why someone would want to do this that the person they are taking it of is unaware.. a few are they want to be shady.. or predatorial.. or pedophiling..
in most instances, it's not for the good of the person being shot..
What was the reason again for not wanting a shutter sound again? I forgot..
EDIT. PS. there's a reason why the FCC mandated that you can't disable it.

It seems to be more of a manufacturer choice/safety courtesy, like the language on cable television (not FCC regulated, but kept relatively clean on many channels anyway).

Actually, check it out,
Bill Summary & Status - 111th Congress (2009 - 2010) - H.R.414 - All Information - THOMAS (Library of Congress)
So far it's in "introduced" status.. FCC(or rather CPSC) hasn't taken any steps. However, it's there and on everyone's minds.
but get my gist? the bill is called "Camera Phone Predator Alert Act" for a reason. :P

This is ridiculous. We don't need more government taking care of everyone. Be careful of what you support. A few years from now, you might find that it's illegal to have a swimming pool because their a leading cause of childhood death, or find that you can no longer buy red meat because there are too many fat people draining the governmental health budget. Sounds crazy, huh?
I like to turn my shutter sound off sometimes so I can capture a few candid shots of one of my kids. If they heard the shutter, they'd stop doing whatever was cute.

Imagine replacing yourself with a known sex offender who also likes to turn off the shutter sound and take pictures of your kids doing cute things..
if that happens, you'll change your tune.
No one likes giving up some freedoms until it DIRECTLY affects them.
How many people don't care for the Adam Walsh fund? ehh.. I dont..I dont have any kids. 10 years from now I could have a kid that gets abducted and then I go into super crazy mode about how we should put more money into it.
What about Christopher Reeves.. he didn't care for stem cell research..yet AFTER his accident, he became a huge advocate for it.
When bad things happen, people's minds change.

The FCC, FDA, FTC and other Federal bureau's sole job is to protect Americans from ourselves and corporations.
I am somewhat gratified for their rolls. I support net neutrality, I support E911 and I also support not shutting off the camera sound but that's just my opinion.

Not paranoid at all.. Do you like companies being able to tell you what traffic goes through your home internet? Do you like it that Verizon would put their website on high priority and torrents on low priority? or youtube videos on low priority? Keeping the net neutral is at the heart of net neutrality. I support NN.
E911? So if you get kidnapped and call 911, you don't want the police to be able to track your location in that situation?
and I've already said my spiel on shutter sounds.

Paranoia aside, some manufacturers (like my HTC Desire) has an option to turn off the sound in the camera settings.
If you don't have that setting, then there are 2 options:
1. Install another camera app that has the option
2. Root your phone and delete /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg
How do I disable the 'click' sound on the camera app? - Android - Stack Exchange
for more details.

Cool!!! I just replaced my camera_click.ogg with a quieter click sound (KeypressStandard.ogg) found in the same folder (just copy/rename it to camera_click.ogg). Much better! Now I can still know when it took the pic, but not have an annoyingly loud sound. I did the same for the video camera as well. Please note you need to be rooted to do this though.
