I dunno.HEAR Act, as opposed to the Hearing Protection Act...the political side I am not allowed to mention here without having my post deleted by a Mod, needs to come up with better material.
And no doubt Trump will roll over and let it happen.
Q: When will he realize he has been chipping away at his base?I dunno.
At some point Trump will realize that ticking off a good chunk of his base will have a dire affect on his campaign. Like Bush Sr, but Bush Sr realized too late & couldn't backpedal.
Personally I don’t see him “rolling over”, rather making some type of hype out of it, if it actually gets legs. That’s what he does.
Mind, just because he Twitter-pated, does not actually mean it will be his agenda. Part of the game played back at the MSM
...and yes I do realize he Twitter-pated a dislike of suppressors. That was a while ago, and only now is someone from the other party picking it up legislatively. Interesting.
Exactly. And more so when it comes to politicians.The percentage of people who care about NFA stuff is extremely small, even within the gun community. If they think it would be beneficial politically, they would throw the minority right under the bus to appease the majority.
I believe the ATF has classified baffles/internal parts as suppressors too?hypothetical....if they did outlaw suppressors, would we have to turn in ONLY the serialized part? IE: some suppressors allow the baffles to come out and thus only the outer tube is the serialized part.
just crossed my mind kind of like handing them a stripped lower and keeping the rest of the parts.
Correct. From the NFA Handbook (emphasis added):I believe the ATF has classified baffles/internal parts as suppressors too?
2.1.7 Silencer. A firearm silencer and a firearm muffler are defined as any device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm. Firearm silencers are generally composed of an outer tube, internal baffles, a front end cap, and a rear end cap.
The definition of a silencer also includes any combination of parts, designed or redesigned, and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a firearm silencer or firearm muffler.
The following illustration depicts parts that are designed and intended for use in assembling a firearm silencer. Another example of parts redesigned and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a firearm silencer are automotive engine freeze plugs that have been modified by drilling a hole through their center to permit passage of a bullet.
Also included within the silencer definition is any part intended only for use in the assembly or fabrication of a firearm silencer.
