Representatives Jeff Duncan (R-SC-3) and John Carter (R-TX-31) introduced legislation on January 9 that will eliminate the paper trail and federal tax on firearm suppressors.

Suppressors are currently regulated under the National Firearms Act (1934) and thereby require law-abiding purchasers to go through the burdensome process of being photographed and fingerprinted.

The regulations also require the would-be purchaser to undergo a background check, register the device with the federal government, and pay the federal government a $200 tax. The process takes approximately six months–and all of this for a device that is not even a firearm.

In fact, during an interview on the December 5, 2016, episode of Bullets with AWR Hawkins, the discussion with former Congressman Matt Salmon (R-AZ-5) revolved around the way laws are so jumbled that it is actually easier to get a gun than it is to get a silencer to put on the gun.
