Question for the legal eagles: Does Blumenthal's "The only people..." quote rise to the level of slander? If you oppose the bill, he's saying you're a criminal. That would seem to harm ones reputation...

What is absolutely the most frustrating to me is that statistics can easily prove that law abiding citizens that own suppressors have an insanely low crime rate.

The facts literally disprove the narrative.

https://freebeacon.com/issues/atf-despite-nearly-1-3-million-silencers-united-states-rarely-used-crimes/

1.3 million silencers. 44 suppressor related crimes per year over the last decade. However, the article doesn't suggest that those 44 suppressor related crimes were of the 1.3 million legal suppressors. It actually suggests the contrary with the following:

Of those 44 crimes per year, only 6 involved defendants with prior felony convictions.

I'm fairly certain that a defendant with a prior felony conviction could not legally possess a suppressor or firearm. So, that suggests of the "44 crimes", some (at minimum, 6) were illegal suppressors in some form or fashion!

So...1.3 million legal suppressors...44 crimes per year "legal and not legal suppressors" and now suddenly it is an epidemic.

It makes me sick just listening to the rhetoric because it is such a lie. Yes, people die at the hands of handguns and semi-automatic rifles, etc. I can at least understand why those types of weapons are opposed by many. Of course I still oppose any restrictions on them. But opposing legal suppressor ownership is as backwards as could be seeing as how the people who go through the process for obtaining a legal suppressor are about as standup as can be.

I do realize the article I linked to is very biased, but I think the consensus is that those facts are generally true.

I don’t think being used in crimes is why the anti-gun idiots want them banned, and I don’t think hearing protection is the main reason most pro-gun folks want them legalized. But hey, I could be wrong.

Start a movement for the "protect the hearing of hunting dogs."

Unless they're hypocrites, every animal rights activist should be all in.

These pups were breed to hunt, are you willing to deny them the right to what is their preferred dog life style?

Do you not care about their quality of life being impacted by hearing loss or damage after retirement?

Dog have rights too.

These same politicians will never be honest enough to tell anyone that in Europe it is much easier to get a silencer/suppressor than it is in the US. Even in the UK where it is somewhat difficult to purchase a firearm you can easily purchase a suppressor. So much so that a Murfreesboro man named Paul Gratton bought SIX of them while on a trip to the UK and brought them home. Of course he also got convicted and went to jail for possession of unregistered suppressors......but the point is that he was able to purchase 6 silencers at retail in Great Britain while on vacation.

That douchebag Menendez (who is as crooked as a dog's hind leg and just missed going to jail for bribery last year when a mistrial was declared in his case ) will never admit that there are over a million NFA registered suppressors in the hands of law abiding folks and that NFA registered suppressors are used less in crimes than steak knives or rocks.....

What a shame. Best I can tell he got about 3 years. He was a family man that had a helicopter repair business; I assume he lost.

I don’t doubt he intentionally violated the law and got caught. But dang man, there are violent offenders that don’t do time on their first conviction. No one was hurt or put in danger by what he did.

We have criminal hugging politicians running all over the place yelling for “Second Chances” for career criminals and dragging offenders to the White House for press conferences while guys like this sit in prison....its ridiculous.

Yep....makes no sense but he was likely viewed as low hanging fruit and an easy conviction to pad statistics by the prosecutor. And no one in Hollywood is going to be an activist to get a middle aged white guy who is a useful member of society who just happens to have possession of some threaded metal pipes out of jail.

      Received an email from GOA regarding Jeremy and Kansas. Long story short, he purchased a suppressor from an unlicensed manufacturer. Why? Kansas has a law stating that all firearms, accessories and ammo manufactured and possessed inside the state are exempt from federal law.
      GOA and several AG from other states are backing the appeals.
      I guess if the Supreme Court actually makes a ruling, this will affect us and the country for years to come.
      In wake of the recent shooting suppressors are already a hot topic, but theoretically if you took all the legal, taxed suppressors and developed a crime rate, I imagine it would be inexplicably low.

      I did a search before posting, but none of the topics presented quite matched up with my situation.
      My dad passed away a few months ago and we're trying to get his affairs wrapped up with as little drama as possible.  When he passed away, he had a few NFA items. I know that we can use form 5 to transfer the items to a lawful heir. The thing is after speaking with an attorney on just the estate in general,  she said it really wasn't worth going through probate to deal with settling debts and dispersing what's left over. Which I'm fine with. But that means we don't technically have an executor for the will. 
      Is it possible to fill out  form 5 and have my mom (as the surviving spouse serve as "executor / personal representative") either transfer them to herself or transfer them to me?  Or are we going to have to open probate just to deal with these items?
      Help?

      In today’s entirely predictable outcomes, the ATF has begun arresting folks who bought Glock autosears off of Wish.com. How they didn’t see this coming from a mile away, I don’t know. If anyone reading this was dumb enough to make this mistake, I’d get on figuring out how to get rid of it in a way that the ATF might take mercy on you. At least do it for your dog’s sake
