Default Gun silencer bill advances, moves to House floor

Controversial gun silencer measure advances - POLITICO

Gun silencer bill advances, moves to House floor - CNNPolitics
"Washington (CNN)A bill containing a controversial provision that would make obtaining gun silencers easier passed its first hurdle Wednesday, advancing to the House floor.
An initial hearing on the bill was first planned in June but postponed following the shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the Republican House whip June 14.
The House Committee on Natural Resources passed the "Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act," or SHARE Act, a bipartisan bill that aims to "expand opportunities for hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting" and "increases safety and hearing protection for sportsmen and women," the committee wrote in a statement.

Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina was responsible for adding the specific provision on gun silencers and argued that silencers protect hunters from hearing loss."

We already have this in Iowa..

But prices are high, and so is the Federal tax.

This is hilarious,
Quote:
The gun silencers provision of the SHARE Act would make it easier for felons, domestic abusers and people with dangerous mental illnesses to buy gun silencers," Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control advocacy group, wrote on its website. "This bill puts the profits of gun manufacturers ahead of public safety.
It would also make it easier for law abiding citizens to purchase gun silencers. But that fact seems to be left out. It's almost as if they think only criminals would buy gun silencers.

Gun "silencers" don't make guns silent, the guns still make a very loud noise. All they do is somewhat reduce the decible level, which protects ones hearing. A gun "silencer" is not anything like in the movies where they make it seem like the "silencer" reduces the sound of a .45 to the decible level of a kitten sneeze. A gun with a "silencer" is still loud, just not as loud as one without.

A gun used with a "silencer" is not more deadly or dangerous than a gun without a "silencer" in the hands of a criminal or law abiding citizen.

I've never understood the suppressor ban. Somebody needs to explain to me just how these thousand dollar devices figure in street crime.

Has anyone ever held up a 7-11 using a suppressor?

This is the result of Governments who insist on treating the population like they are a bunch of 8 year olds.

Time to do away with regulations that have little or no meaning.

No, it's time they did things to improve our way of life. It's time the helped more people get an education. Found a way to get the homeless off the streets, Help people get the help they need. Fuking silencers is a priority? Yeah, if you are not a fully developed human being.

I wonder how, in the name of Allah's butthole, somebody managed to equate an education, helping the homeless, the needy, and silencers to any type of priorities.

He left out global warming. Golly!

I don't think it's Allah's butthole we need to be concerned with.
