What If Millions of People Get Gun Silencers Congress Is Ready To Roll The Dice The Huffington Post March 14 2017 1003 am Gun silencers have been one of the most tightly regulated firearms products in the United States since 1934 Now Congress may eliminate those restrictions which everybody agrees could mean millions more silencers in the hands of American gun owners Huffpo weighs in The debate is whether the benefits of more silencers would outweigh the costs Silencers also called suppressors are restricted under the National Firearms Act alongside weaponry like machine guns and sawed-off shotguns Federal regulations impose a high barrier to purchase Buyers must pay a $200 transfer fee submit to fingerprinting and pass a federal background check a process that can take up to nine months to complete Lawmakers say their push to end those requirements and thereby make silencers more easily available is about protecting the hearing of gun owners exposed to high-volume blasts while hunting or target shooting They are calling their bill the Hearing Protection Act and it is currently awaiting committee hearings in the House and Senate “This legislation is about safety ― plain and simple” said Rep Jeff Duncan R-SC one of the bill’s sponsors in a January statement “I’m very active in sport shooting and hunting and I can’t tell you how better off the shooting sports enthusiasts would be if we had easier access to suppressors to help protect our hearing” A similar bill failed to make it out of committee in 2015 but now that Republicans are in control of the White House and both chambers of Congress the measure has a much better chance of passing Donald Trump Jr the president’s son has put his support behind the effort saying in an interview with the CEO of manufacturer SilencerCo last fall that the current regulations were “just another rule the government wants to put in place for no reason” Advocates for gun violence prevention say the bill is a gift to the firearms industry because it would massively expand the market for silencers and to criminals because it would make it easier to fire a gun undetected Silencers are “used to conceal the fact that you are firing a weapon” said Rep Chris Murphy D-Conn “There will be more crimes committed more people killed” if the current bill passes Meme
