New Federal Measure Would Deregulate Firearm Suppressors

posted on July 7, 2017

A new measure introduced last week in the U.S. Congress would do away with all federal regulations on firearm suppressors, treating them like other firearm accessories.

S.B. 1505, backed by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, goes further than the Hearing Protection Act currently under consideration, which would remove suppressors from National Firearms Act requirements.

“Suppressors can make shooting safer for the millions of hunters and sportsmen that exercise their constitutional right to use firearms every year,” Lee said in a released statement. “The current process for obtaining a suppressor is far too expensive and burdensome. Our bill would remove these unnecessary federal regulations and make it easier for firearms users to protect themselves.”

The Senate measure will be considered in the Finance Committee, and the House version will be considered in both the Ways and Means and Judiciary committees.
