    Why were they ever added to start with? I can't recall ever reading any news where some mouse of a criminal pulled out his pistol to rob someone with a bulky suppressor attached to it.

    Don't know. Probably. Unless you are building your own... I assume.

    I have already called Isakson and voiced my support, everyone please do the same. The reason I asked is that I expect to have to give up the $200 per stamp return funds if we want to get it passed. They have out money, getting it back is going to be a real stretch. I also look for someone to try and tack on some other crap that we do not like if they are going to pass it.

    A long way to go yet.

    Never going to happen. They are 'scary'. Hell even some "pro gun" people didn't want them to be made legal for hunting.

    People, please.... yes there's been a shift politically. But if you really think there's going to be major change from it, please send me a PM. I've got a bridge for sale.

    Have to look back at 1934 records. They were used by gangsters in that era.

    I have mixed feelings about it passing. Sure I'd like for it to be $200 cheaper and more importantly much faster but I'm somewhat of an elitist and I like having toys that most people don't. I'd like for it to pass since it means less restrictions and its just common sense but if it dont its not going to stop me from getting more.

    Don't believe it had anything to do with gangsters. It was to help prevent poaching.

    The way it reads is that a suppressor will be treated like a firearm. No Tax Stamp, just the 4473 (or whatever new form they come up with) and the background check. Pass that and you walk out the door with it.
