Hearing protection act introduced

The American Suppressor Association:

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.

    How about a bill acknowledging that Congress has no authority, no jurisdiction, over the inherent right to keep and bear arms, and be done with it? Anything else is just adding layers of new shit on top of layers of old shit, never addressing that over-ridding issue.

    We are being far too clever for own good when we appeal to authoritarians (enemies of liberty) to “protect” our “rights”. That’s just not how it works.

    Let’s make no bones about this: this is not a bill to protect anyone’s hearing (that’s a side benefit certainly, not the primary benefit). The first and only real purpose of this bill is to disguise the simple fact from the panicky antis that we want suppressors because. End of debate. I question this nonsense as it is the same sort of bullshit the antis use to justify their unconstitutional legislation.

    I hope this passes. I’d like for there to be one move which gets the government out of the way; there won’t be. I’ll take progress in the correct direction.
