- Jesus H. Christ. Moron Republicans vote to allow gun silencers to be sold to every crazy bastard out there looking to kill cops or slaughter Christians in a Jihad.
(Tenth Amendment Center) - On Monday, the Tennessee Senate passed a bill that would decriminalize the manufacture and possession of firearm silencers in the state. Final passage of the bill would help foster an environment hostile to federal gun control.
Sen. Steve Southerland (R-Morristown) introduced Senate Bill 921 (SB921) earlier this year. Titled the “Tennessee Hearing Protection Act,” the legislation would repeal current Tennessee statutes prohibiting the possession, manufacture, transport, repair, or sale of firearm silencers.
These devices simply muffle the sound of a gun. They do not literally silence firearms. Nevertheless, the federal government heavily regulates silencers under the National Firearms Act. The feds charge a $200 tax on the purchase of the devices. Buying a silencer also requires months-long waits after filing extensive paperwork with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Passage of SB921 would not alter federal law, but it would remove a layer of law hindering access to these harmless devices.Read More . . . .
This is for the Tennessee GOP
What will these inbred Republicans tell the public when Muslim terrorists
come into gun shops and buy cases of silencers?
