This is what many of us have been wanting for years. The ASA is now trying to make it a reality. I fully support the Hearing Protection Act, which would remove suppressors (aka Silencers) from the National Firearms Act of 1934. Purchasers would be required to pass a NICS background check, just as any other individual purchasing firearms from a gun dealer.
Suppressors are legal in 41 states and are allowed for hunting in 37 states. Suppressors are a fantastic way to increase hearing protection and to mitigate noise from outdoor shooting ranges near populated areas.
Everyone needs to be ready to contact your elected representatives as this bill begins to move through the legislative process.
