    Hearing Protection Act -- get Suppressors off the NFA list!

    Easy way to send a letter to your representatives via form:
    Support the Hearing Protection Act

    In 2011, the American Suppressor Association formed with one primary goal in mind: remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act. For years, we have quietly worked behind the scenes in Washington, D.C. to set the stage for Rep. Salmon’s Hearing Protection Act of 2015 (H.R. 3799).

    As we fight for our right to shoot quietly, we need your help to make sure our voice is heard loud and clear on Capitol Hill. Please take the time to fill out the form below so that you can send an email to your Representatives and Senators to let them know that you support the Hearing Protection Act.
    The path to victory will not be easy, but if we work together and make our voices heard, we will ultimately prevail. We look forward to the day when we are no longer taxed to protect our hearing while exercising our Second Amendment rights at the range, and in the field. Together, we can ensure that future generations of sportsmen and women will no longer have to sacrifice their hearing.

    As much as I agree with this, I feel that it will not go through (PLEASE let me be wrong).

    In urban areas, great expense has been made for systems that can triangulate the report from gunshots. The systems can differentiate between backfiring motorcycles and different types of firearms. I assume between pistol and rifle. They are pinpoint accurate as all heck, too.

    With systems like this in place, I doubt there would be much foothold for this Act.

    However.... I would welcome the ability to shoot suppressed subsonic 9mm.

    EDIT..... Took Action.

    Suppressors also help keep your gun fearing neighbors from getting overly concerned. If they don't hear you there is less to complain about.

    You don't know how much fun shooting can be until you've gone suppressed full auto plinking.

    I've done this without the watermelons outside of BATF jurisdiction so don't send any agents my way. Sure burns through the 9mm ammo, enough to sink a canoe. ( remember qwerty's canoe?)

    Got'em! Those dastardly watermelons are always trying to sneak up on unsuspecting folk!
