A gun law that makes sense (http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-seattle/a-proposed-gun-law-for-wa-that-makes-sense)

Blake’s sensible amendment to RCW 9.41.250 would legalize the use of sound suppressors on firearms, provided the suppressor is legally registered and possessed in accordance with federal law.


GOOD FOR THEM!

We can't have loud cars or parties, or firearms that don't cause hearing damage.......

My lord! There will be blood flowing in the streets of Seattle and no one is going to hear a thing.

That the proposal is getting bipartisan support should come as no surprise. Presently, it is legal for Evergreen State gun owners to buy and possess suppressors. You can even mount one on a firearm. You just can’t shoot that gun with the suppressor attached. How dumb is that?Yes. It would seem that allowing citizens to actually use them would make a lot of sense.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that since it makes perfect sense and is logical, our legislature will never go for it.

Hopefully MSSA v Holder will enable WA to go one step further and have completely uninfringed suppressors.

The registration certainly doesn't make perfect sense to me.

My future kids will probably want one too, probably more than one.

Yeah. My wife got hooked first time. She was the first to fire the Osprey 9 we bought.

More coming...


Good on Washington. We can blame Hollywood for the suppressor mess. Those damn movies always put them in the hands of the bad guys. They don't "silence" anything. The best you can get is just better than hearing safe using subsonic rounds and a damn fine device. Even the best rifle suppressors will cause hearing damage with standard load ammo in .223 or bigger. So it's not like you can shoot and not be heard.

They make shooting more enjoyable by taking the sharpest curve off the shot. And the people next door like you better. My neighbors will agree: good suppressor make great neighbors.

For us in California, how would we get the process started to push something like this?

Hearing is important and we should make efforts to protect it.

Find someone who lost hearing as a result of not being able to own a suppressor. Well it'd be their fault for not wearing hearing protection but yeah just sue the state... lol I can get them out here and well I sure do plan to!

Unfortunately, the Kalyphornyia Legislature's way of dealing with this issue would be to ban all shooting, including at shooting ranges.:chris:

Even with hearing protection you will still suffer hearing loss over time.

I agree. Supressors should be widely used for outdoor shooting. It's a courtesy. They are "expected" in many countries. I don't have references but I seem to remember they are commonly used, as a courtesy, in New Zealand, France, Finland (I might not be remembering correctly the exact countries). They are unregulated items in many countries.

As for the Firearms Freedom Acts in various states... I wish these things would be successful, but they will crash and burn in the Supreme Court, I expect. I hope that Obama will be a one-term president, and President Pallin will then replace some of the liberal boot-lickers with hard-core originalists who know how to count to ten. But until then... the NFA will stand.

Now the public school will for sure become slaughter houses in WA. In fact, shooting random people on the street will soon be legal with this bill in place.

The NFA can still be standing with suppressors removed from it.

True and I have mufflers on my car and truck. Why not my gun so I can protect my hearing for my personal safety? Oh wait in California they have no regard for that lol... My permit to CCW is not good for California or Oregon. Kinda sucks since I want to visit my family and brother someday...

Nice! My son is almost 4.....too bad the politicos in this state don't care enough about the children to allow us to protect their hearing.

In California!!?? No. As the vast majority of the States move to grant more of the rights of their citizens in regards to firearms our fine State legislators continues to run to the other side of the spectrum. From the article, I'd be happy for now if they would accept this as truth, and allow us (allow us, how do you like that :mad:) shall issue.

"Are criminals less likely to commit violent crimes with so many potential victims packing iron? Who can say for sure? It is clear, however, that with some 270,000 Washington CPLs in circulation – a record number – the greater number of armed private citizens has not resulted in higher murder rates, as concealed carry opponents invariably predict.
