As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
This is to alert people in one more step in taking American back in South Carolina Representative Jeff Duncan's bill in the House, HR 367, designed to stop Americans being gouged for trying to reduce hearing damage in acquiring a suppressor to tone the sound down from a shooting a firearm.
Most of you only have experience with "silencers" in movies where you hear a poof, assassins only use them as they are silent and it is this dangerous mystery, but the fact is that there is not such a thing as a silencer. All there can be is a suppression of sound. Think of it this way in you have heard loud pipes on a kids care which is obnoxious, but your car with a muffler is not as loud. That is what Jeff Duncan is attempting to accomplish.
This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) eliminate the $200 transfer tax on firearm silencers, and (2) treat any person who acquires or possesses a firearm silencer as meeting any registration or licensing requirements of the National Firearms Act with respect to such silencer. Any person who pays a transfer tax on a silencer after October 22, 2015, may receive a refund of such tax.
The bill amends the federal criminal code to preempt state or local laws that tax or regulate firearm silencers.
In the US Government though, when you buy a muffler for your car, you do not get charged an additional 200 dollars by the IRS in a tax. In firearms, Americans are instead infringed upon in being levied a tax, and that is what Jeff Hunter is attempting to stop.
Every person will still have to file the BATFE paperwork, go through a background check, because for some gun control reason of the cartel, a gun muffler is called a firearm. It is ridiculous like calling your muffler a car, but that is the reality. It does mean though that law abiding Citizens are still going to be checked for these suppressors to save their hearing, and there are serial numbers on the suppressors, so nothing changes, except this huge tax.
For recreational shooting the suppressors are a necessity, especially in indoor ranges with handguns which are extremely loud. For hunting, this suppressor, while still registering in a peak blip as a jet engine, it saves a persons hearing which is something everyone can agree on considering the cost of health care and hearing aides.
As a side note in this, a study was found in World War II Veterans, that the hearing of the farmers who went off to war, was actually less damaged than the farm kids who stayed on the farm listening to B John Deere's, H Farmalls and Fords, which did have mufflers, but the constant damage inflicted upon the later entire Baby Boomer generation is a reality, which can be remedied on shooting ranges with the Jeff Duncan suppressor legislation.
It is a start, and States like Iowa have already been moving on pro suppressor legislation, which is one more step in taking America back.
This is posted so that you can phone or write your Representatives and Senators to gain sponsorship and move a Senator to introduce a like bill in the Senate.
Rep. Duncan, on Gun Talk, stated that this might still be a 1 to 2 year process, as he needs more sponsors, and the more sponsors, the more quickly it will move through both houses where President Trump will sign it.
This type of legislation has to be scheduled to Ways and Means and Judiciary, because it involves revenue and Constitutional legalities. One must understand how hard it is to get rights back once they are obliterated.
There are fine Patriots like Rep. Duncan moving for Americans and his type of legislation is not going to be covered, but what will be covered is the California style gun grab by liberals in Washington State, which states that if someone steals your gun, commits a crime, that you are guilty of that crime, and not the criminal.
The time to increase the Trump wave is now, to generate numbers of these bills to take America back, in order for it to become common place for this type of pro gun, pro life and pro American legislation to appear on President Trump's desk to be signed into law, which is what we want, as with pro Trump courts, the laws will stand forever and no future Obama (God forbid) will be able to sign your rights away in an Executive Order.
There are currently 83 sponsors to this bill, and it is your responsibility to get your representative on this list if they are not already involved.
