WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce the introduction of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) by Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05). This historic piece of legislation will remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act (NFA)

Let's see how long it takes to get thru the system. I can only imagine the untrue crap that will come out in the hearings and in the media.

I do not expect to see that bill go anywhere.

The Feds like the $200 tax too much

I suspect it will get shot down once they see the revenue numbers but, I am hoping not. Maybe work in there is still a $200 stamp but that local FFLs can process the paperwork.

No, the antis will only say that now mass killers can shoot up an entire school without anybody being alerted.

it's not so much the $200 fee, but the excessive wait and overreaching regulation...

I'd personally have no problem dropping the extra $200 on top of the price of the suppressor and walk out with it, the same as you would with any other accessory(scope, stock, etc)

if you could go to the lgs, pick up a suppressor, and fill out a form, and drop the 200 bucks for the stamp, and take your suppressor home same day, it would be 1 million times better than it currently is. being able to buy a suppressor the same way I buy a butt stock would be ideal however.

Agreed COST is not the reason I haven't bought a suppressor yet. The process sounds like a giant PITA.

I wonder how much the ATF spends to collect that $200 stamp revenue.

Good question. No idea but, with suppressor sales way up in the past couple of years (and all the new manufacturers), I suspect they make quite a pretty penny from it.

Dave

and they would make even more by just doing the standard background check like when we purchase long guns and just charging for the stamp and having the ffl do the paperwork.

seems like a no brainer to me.

Everything is part of the reason I haven't jumped on one yet. To me, $200 is a lot of money. Add to it the cost of getting an NFA trust, the pain in making sure every I is dotted and every T crossed on the form. The only problem I don't have is the wait time precisely because I never put anything into the NFA jail.

I am sure that as soon as I send my form off to the ATF, it will become an issue. I am debating on jumping on the homemade bandwagon on the $100 thread. First I have to put $$$ aside for the trust.
