    It would be nice. But there are too many idiot politicians that believe Hollywood and their own ignorance are the only truths about guns.

    I thought we wanted to be more like Europe. This would be a step, wouldn't it?

    Remember, it's for the children's hearing!

    I would by happy if they repealed the entire firearms act of 1934. BUT, I don't see it happening. IF we can use the same tactics as the anti-gun politicians, maybe when can whittle away one piece at a time to get what we want.

    If it actually passes, and I don't have to pay a $200 tax, and I don't have to wait months on end, I could see this being a very good thing for the suppressor industry. I know that I for one would buy one for every gun I own, and I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of people who didn't want to deal with the NFA hassle also went out and bought some.

    I'd love to see it. I'd actually buy a couple of they did. The tax stamp and federal involvement keep me from being interested in anything NFA.

    I'm mixed on this. If it passes, it's going to cost me a bunch of money.






    Seriously, I'm not really mixed credit card in hand. :mememe:

    If it passes, would the price of suppressors come down?

    Well, I figure quantity would go up, and, due to economy of scale, if savings were passed along, suppressor prices should drop. OTOH, maybe suppressor makers might try to snag some of our $200 tax savings. Depends.
