Hearing Protection Act

The NRA is standing behind a bill that would eliminate the $200 tax on suppressors and require buyers to go through a background check.

If we regulated cars like we did guns, everyone would have to drive with hearing protection on.

    Suppressors ought to be regulated like holsters and scopes.

    Is it just me or is the link above just the same one talking about the NRA’s lack of imminent demise of at PAgunblog, Didn’t see anything related to the bill about suppressors. Of course you gotta know that the lobbyists of “Big Suppressor” will be screaming NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! the loudest.

    If there were a serious movement to ban cars, you bet they’d try to ban car mufflers at some stage as a way of alienating drivers from non-drivers, building a bigger car-hating block.

    Yeah I was all in until the part if the bill passes suppressors would be treated as firearms. Fer fucks sake they aren’t firearms they’re a muffler.

    But then again this is the same nation that has states (mine included) that require you register to purchase OTC allergy medication.

    Jailer;
    Today, they are. Today, when the dealer finally gets the approved ATF transfer form back, you have to fill out a 4473, just like for a gun purchase. The only thing, today, not required is a NICS check because the transfer form did, just that.

    I’ll accept this, if it passes, as it’ll mean that people will be able to make their own, just like they can make their own guns now.

    I’d prefer that suppressors be deregulated entirely. But, let’s not make the perfect the enemy of the good, take what we can and continue working on the rest of the NFA.

    Yeah @Miles I hear ya, I just tend to get a bit sparked up when it comes to government overstepping and regulation.

  9. Ron W Says:

    Yes Jailer, I ‘m adamant that government should stay UNDER and operate only according to its delegated powers, which always come DOWN from the greater to the lesser.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
