A new bill aims to remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act.
That’s exactly what the American Silencer Association and Representative Matt Salmon (AZ) hope to do with the introduction of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA). The bill aims to remove suppressors from the jurisdiction of the National Firearms Act, which would eliminate the current complicated and expensive process associated with acquiring a suppressor.
The reasoning behind the bill is that millions of hunters and shooters are damaging their hearing, and that damage could be lessened by the use of a suppressor. While this bill certainly has an uphill battle, it would be a shooter or hunters dream.
