We will try to post current legislative bills that relate to Gun Control issues in this Forum. This includes bills in the Utah Legislature and U.S. Congress.

No that's more of along term goal right now but we are both agreed that we want to do it eventually.

Maybe we should write to any left wing congress critters also:
This article is eight years old but still relevant:
A Democrat's guide to why firearm sound suppressors ("silencers") should be made easier to obtain.

Or if nothing else "borrow" some of the arguments.

Firearm suppressors, colloquially and inaccurately known as "silencers", are basic safety equipment when operating a firearm, as their use prevents both hearing damage and reduces the noise pollution of firing ranges. Due to a little-known section of Federal law called the National Firearms Act, their possession has been all but criminalized.

(This article refers to these devices by the correct "suppressors" instead of the more colloquial and inaccurate "silencers", as they do no such thing.)

Suppressors have the benefit of both decreasing the likelihood of hearing loss and decreasing noise pollution from hunting and shooting ranges. In the UK, Europe, and Scandinavia, they recognize the health and environmental benefits of suppressors, so they are sold over the counter without much regulation at all.

Democrats, as the party that pushes for safer health and environmental regulations, should embrace any effort to lessen the regulations surrounding firearm suppressors, preferably by making them subject to the same regulations as ordinary firearms - a simple instant background check and no onerous tax. This is called a "Title I" firearm. Let's explore a bit...


BTW the author makes a good argument for wearing electronic earmuffs while hunting outdoors.
First for hearing protection and, although not mentioned, IMHO sound amplification of quiet possible targets or other hunters.

Found this on another site is response to suppressor bill in congress:

It's a billboard in New Zealand:

Now, realizing that the NZ$ equals US$0.66 that means that that JW15 .22lr rifle with scope and "silencer" is US$196.

EDIT: I just checked their listing online for the Norinco JW15 package. It's now NZ$369.

HOWEVER!!!!!! Take a look at their site and particularly their ammo prices:

50 rounds of Winchester T-22 is NZ$12.99.
