Bill introduced to remove supressors from NFA

ASA ANNOUNCES HEARING PROTECTION ACT: A BILL TO REMOVE SUPPRESSORS FROM THE NFA

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce the introduction of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) by Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05). This historic piece of legislation 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.

I really hope this passes. Not sure it will, but it would be awesome.

I would settle for this being a step in the direction toward getting it passed someday. For some reason, some bills need several tries before they finally pass.

The first bill is ignored, the second one is laughed at, the third is fought, and the fourth one becomes law (apologies to Gandhi).
It's not about the odds, it's about the stakes.

Did Gandhi oppose NFA registration of suppressors???

It would be amazing if this law passed. However, I can't see obama ever signing this into law. Would likely warrant a veto, in his eyes.

I'm currently waiting for my first suppressor. Makes me sad to think if this passes, I'll have missed out on the refund provision, as my check was cashed before OCT 22. :(

I'm shocked at how little attention this is getting. I would think the gun community would be a little more excited about this.

How little attention? It's been plastered across every gun forum and community I'm on. I don't think it's getting much actual discussion because the usual response is. "Yes please please please! and then about 15 plus 1's or likes or dittos."
SPOOOOOOON!!!

+1 I have seen it a quite a bit.

Silencerco just sent me an email about it. They have a form you can fill out on their "Fight The Noise" website that will send a letter to your representatives. You can also add in your own experiences with suppressors to make it a bit more personal.

Nice pic. 8-)

I was thinking how to take a photo before I get my surpressor. Maybe I'll make a "Visiting Hours" sign and take it with me to the gun store. Then take a picture with me next to the sign and my suppressor playing cards.
