The hearing protection act
« on: June 30, 2017, 04:23:08 PM »
Oh goodie!   please!   I want one!


Quote
Two Republican senators introduced legislation that would make suppressors—or silencers, as they’re more commonly known—more easily available to the American public. The bill, called the Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act, would eliminate taxes and federal regulations of suppressors.

“By properly classifying suppressors as a firearm accessory, our bill would allow sportsmen to have better access to hearing protection and preserve the hearing of sportsmen, gun owners and those who live near shooting ranges,” said Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, in a press release.

Crapo introduced the Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act on Thursday with Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah.

They are predicting a very long fight.

I'd love to see it mandatory. I live in the forest with an abundant amount of game, from turkey to deer and everything in between, the shots going off tend to get tedious like a lib whining.
Anything to take the crack out of the bang is a good thing. I also have hearing loss from my time in the army.

When you think about it, it's ludicrous why anyone would be against deadening noise, we have mufflers for cars...

Do they make mufflers for Dem's?   :lol:
