    Suppressor Ban Introduced

    NOT A POLITICAL POST!

    It is widely reported that a Suppressor Ban has been introduced. If it passes, what will happen to the money people have sent to ATF with Form1/4, that has not been approved?

    From what I have read this bill has been floating around for some time now, probably in response to the one guy in 100 years that committed a murder with a suppressor.

    Same as if it was not approved, they refund it. Those with approved Form 1s but haven't built yet can likewise send a letter to ATF saying it was never built and request a refund. Those who already have theirs are screwed.

    But I doubt it will pass, suppressors have become mainstream in the last dozen years or so. Every time I go to an outdoor public range I see at least 1 rifle with a suppressor being shot.

    I read an article today online recommending first hunting rifles for kids, one piece of advice was suppressing it.

    I got Quizzed on this yesterday by a friend...had not heard about it till now.

    I thought the Hearing protection act was going to fix this forever.

    it was, until the Las Vegas shooter was reported to have silencers and bump stocks. Then it became a political hot potato.

    my kids dont shoot unsuppressed as much as possible. bird hunting is the only notable exception.
    to the point they whine, why cant they take a suppressor for riflery at camp!

    reason being, I dont want their hearing shot like mine.

    I understand about hearing loss! I used to shoot without ear protection, and when attached to an NG Artillery Unit, I would leave one plug out so I could hear if a call for help came in. As a result of it all, I have severe tinnitus and moderate hearing loss. Nowadays, I don't even shoot a 22lr rifle without ear protection. I can't make anything better, but I don't want it to get worse. My father has substantial hearing loss, mostly due to shooting without ear protection; he can't hear birds singing, which he loved.

    Always use ear protection when shooting!
