USA -(Ammoland.com)- On October 22, 2015 the Hearing Protection Act was introduced.

This piece of legislation is aimed at removing silencers from the NFA and instead having their transfer go through a traditional ATF Form 4473 – the same way you would purchase a standard rifle or pistol.

What does this mean for you?

  • No $200 tax stamp
  • No excessive wait times
  • No NFA trusts
  • No fingerprint cards, passport photos, or Chief Law Enforcement Officer notification
  • A simple process, just like when you purchase most firearms through your dealer

Even though the House, Senate, and Presidency will be controlled by like-minded advocates for the Second Amendment, bills take time to become laws and citizens should not be taxed for trying to protect their hearing while exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Between now and the passage of this bill, we encourage our customers to continue to support the industry and to take advantage of the following:

The Hearing Protection Action includes a provision for all people who purchase a silencer between the time the bill is introduced (October 22, 2015) until the day it passes.

Should you purchase a silencer during that time, you will receive a $200 tax credit to cover the cost of any new silencer tax stamps.

What can you do?

Go to fightthenoise.org and take action to write your Representative and Senators and tell them you support the Hearing Protection Act.
