There's a new Bill introduced to remove suppressors from the NFA list and treat them as a regular firearm. If passed, any NFA tax paid after today would be refunded. Transfers would be just like buying a gun.

Quote:
Under the terms of the Hearing Protection Act, introduced Thursday with 10 co-sponsors, gone would be the NFA requirements for the devices. Instead, federal law would treat them as firearms which would allow suppressors to transfer through any regular federal firearms license holders to anyone not prohibited from possessing them after the buyer passes an FBI instant background check.

Rather than the lengthy Form 4 process, which can take months, buyers would only have to complete the standard 4473 Form before taking possession.

Government is going to give away $200 for each suppressor, I doubt it.

Be great if it does happen. I've been wanting .22 lr and .45 suppressors.

That is awesome, I don't think anything firearms related should be regulated, but in particular suppressors and short barreled rifles should be taken off the list.

I believe in some other places like England of all places you can buy suppressors in hardware stores.

Didn't England outlaw guns? Not sure they'd need suppressors without guns.

Exactly, the only way something like this would pass is still having the tax stamp attached to it, but without the Form 4 wait. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't particularly like having to shell out an extra 200 bucks, but if I can walk out with my suppressor that day I'll gladly pay it.

Well I meant UK, but they're still pretty hard to get. One of the post on that link says it actually illegal to hunt without a suppressor in the UK, and considered rude in most of Europe to shoot a gun without a suppressor.

Used one in Scotland a couple of weeks ago for the first time. On a .243. Before I was skeptical, but, they are the bomb.

They outlawed handguns. And rifles are extremely regulated. We don't want that. A cop got killed trying to tazer the tires out of a stolen pickup the last week I was there.

Same here. The most fun I've had while shooting anything was with one

I seriously doubt it will pass. Don't get me wrong, I would love for it to. But when have you EVER seen the government give up control over a process or voluntarily lose the income from it? Especially one this deeply entrenched? Ain't gonna happen.

I'll be ordering my Spectre II here in the next few weeks and I won't even bat an eye about this deal. What is way more likely to happen is they do the NFA reform they have been talking about for the last year and require LEO sign off even with a trust. That is why I am not waiting on the Spectre II. I am getting everything I can afford now. My Harvester cleared a few weeks ago and my Omega should hopefully clear late Nov.

Buy early, buy often, that is my motto.

Hoorah for the common man. Attorneys may try to kill this since it would cut into one of their little enclaves.
