Another NFA gift from the 1986 FOPA is a definition of a silencer.


The terms “firearm silencer” and “firearm muffler” mean any device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm, including any combination of parts, designed or redesigned, and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a firearm silencer or firearm muffler, and any part intended only for use in such assembly or fabrication.

ATF drove on with the idea that only a complete assembly needed a tax stamp as it had prior to FOPA.

Suddenly, they've discovered that every part and supcomponent is its own thing?

Got to get your congress critters on repealing this definition.

Even better, get that hearing protection act passed.  That moots the whole deal.

Get Gunowners of America to back the fuck off their mailings so that incremental recoveries of our rights are possible instead of the nothing we get from all or nothing stances.

I still remember them torpedoing linking Fix NICS and national CCW reciprocity.  Do you?  Well, we got fix NICS...  But we didn't get anything else because it wasn't a full repeal of all gun laws everywhere.
