Hearing protection act introduced
The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce the reintroduction of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) by Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC-03) and Rep. John Carter (TX-31). This historic piece of legislation, which was originally introduced by Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) in the 114th Congress, will remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act (NFA), replacing the antiquated federal transfer process with an instantaneous NICS background check. The HPA also includes a provision to refund the $200 transfer tax to applicants who purchase a suppressor after October 22, 2015, which was the original date of introduction.
The hysteria is already starting from the democrats and the press (but I repeat myself).
Sebastian has a post on making the case for the bill. You know, there are rules about the noise level a person can be subjected to while on the job. And this is for the safety of the workers. Suppressors fit the bill for that. And I’d like to see a suppressor only indoor range.
