In genetics, a silencer is a DNA sequence capable of binding transcription regulation factors, called repressors. DNA contains genes and provides the template to produce messenger RNA (mRNA). That mRNA is then translated into proteins. When a repressor protein binds to the silencer region of DNA, RNA polymerase is prevented from transcribing the DNA sequence into RNA. With transcription blocked, the translation of RNA into proteins is impossible. Thus, silencers prevent genes from being expressed as proteins.RNA polymerase, a DNA-dependent enzyme, transcribes the DNA sequences, called nucleotides, in the 3' to 5' direction while the complementary RNA is synthesized in the 5' to 3' direction. RNA is similar to DNA, except that RNA contains uracil, instead of thymine, which forms a base pair with adenine. An important region for the activity of gene repression and expression found in RNA is the 3' untranslated region. This is a region on the 3' terminus of RNA that will not be translated to protein but includes many regulatory regions.
Not much is yet known about silencers but scientists continue to study in hopes to classify more types, locations in the genome, and diseases associated with silencers.

The latest concerning the Hearing Protection Act from the ASA: Hearing Protection Act Language Incorporated Into Comprehensive Sportsmens Package (the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act)
Highlights involving silencers:
Just thought I'd pass it along. Cheers.
The title kind of says it. If the Hearing Protection Act passes and silencers are now Title I, so you can buy them with a simple background check, a 4473, and out the door, would your acquisitions be any different? If so, how?
The Hearing Protection Act of 2015, while having support from a number of members of congress, had no real chance of becoming law as BHO would have vetoed it if it ever got to his desk.
However, there is a new president being sworn in come January and the GOP has majorities in the Senate and...
