Hearing Protection Act (HPA) : What It Means For You

USA -(Ammoland.com)- On October 22, 2015 the Hearing Protection Act was introduced.

This piece of legislation is aimed at removing silencers from the NFA and instead having their transfer go through a traditional ATF Form 4473 – the same way you would purchase a standard rifle or pistol.

What does this mean for you?

  • No $200 tax stamp
  • No excessive wait times
  • No NFA trusts
  • No fingerprint cards, passport photos, or Chief Law Enforcement Officer notification
  • A simple process, just like when you purchase most firearms through your dealer

Even though the House, Senate, and Presidency will be controlled by like-minded advocates for the Second Amendment, bills take time to become laws and citizens should not be taxed for trying to protect their hearing while exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Between now and the passage of this bill, we encourage our customers to continue to support the industry and to take advantage of the following:

The Hearing Protection Action includes a provision for all people who purchase a silencer between the time the bill is introduced (October 22, 2015) until the day it passes.

Should you purchase a silencer during that time, you will receive a $200 tax credit to cover the cost of any new silencer tax stamps.

What can you do?

Go to their website and take action to write your Representative and Senators and tell them you support the Hearing Protection Act.

    This would be great! Not only for saving my hearing but to NOT annoy the neighbors when I decide to shoot my guns on my property.

    Unfortunately, the HPA will not apply to states that have made it illegal to own surpressors like California.

    Maybe the federal law should be amended to make it the law of the land, regardless of local laws.
    (There’s a word for that, but I can’t think of it now. I will, two minutes after I post this, though.)

    Preemption. If we could get NFA completely repealed that would be even better.

    @Bob, You could not be more correct. Now is our time to push for the repeal of the National Firearms Act (NFA) and the Gun Control Act (GCA). Neither of these two acts of Congress have ever prevented or solves a crime. Both of these acts of Congress only work a hardship on law abiding people, but do not effect criminals, illegal aliens, or the sociopathic.

    Everyone should support this bill. Not only will it save you the $200.00 tax stamp it will save FFL vendors $500.00 a year to be licensed to sell them. I’m an old guy and wear hearing aids. I’m told by my doc that shooting with out hearing protection contributed greatly to that loss. Of course we didn’t know that back then but you do now. firearm mufflers would be a good thing.
