    Default Hearing Protection act.

    So it was just introduced to the new congress, if it passes what does that mean for us? The SAFE act doesn't explicitly say that silencers are illegal outside of the nfa here,correct? So in theory if they want to keep them from being sold here, there will be a short period of time between the passing of the HPA and new york passing a new BS law to try and ban them. Also, since that was a major point of them banning threaded barrels, does this mean that muzzle brakes and flash hiders would also be undone from the safe act? If i'm off base with my reasoning do let me know. How i see it now, buying a suppressor, should the HPA pass would be just like buying an AR lower, in that you have to be 21 because its not a rifle or shotgun and go through a background check.

    edit: just read what they had on the house actions website, they actually specified they should be treated as long guns, so 18 yrs of age.

    Ny already has a separate law banning suppressors, sbs, sbr, and machine guns.

    Threaded muzzles and muzzle devices aren't banned on non-SAFE defined assault weapons so there's plenty we'd be able to use them on here if suppressor were to be made legal.

    There would be lots of good stuff to use supressors on even given the SAFE act, but suppressors are banned in NY, not just restricted like at the federal level, so unless something reverses that law we are still SOL.

    Like PMC said, and i read it after i made the post in the penal code, suppressors themselves are illegal, my safe act comment was just another thought. My intent would have actually been for something along the lines of a remington 700, had a suppressor been in the near future for any new yorker.

    A buddy just told me that he saw an internet news feed that NY was changing its laws on suppressors ? Fake news ?

    Unless he told you they are going to be more illegal and "suppressor" redefined to make more things fall under the law, I'd call fake.

    There was a book I seen once that had how to make home made suppressors, There were a lot of different ways to go about it.
    I'd like to have a few of them and they are legal here in Washington State, but I will wait it out and see where this goes.

    Like XP100 said in his post, it will save a couple of hundred bucks and once it goes into effect the price for the suppressors should drop.
