Firearms news you can use


Barb shot a suppressed handgun at the American Suppressor Association’s media event in Indiana.


Barb talks about The Hearing Protection Act, H.R. 367, which would remove suppressors from regulation under the National Firearms Act, replacing the federal transfer process with a National Instant Criminal Background. Of course, the LA Times thinks we want suppressors so that we can become more militarized: http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-gun-silencers-20170110-story.html
