So Trump said he does not like silencers and some Democrats and Gun Control groups are making the noises du rigeur. Our side already are screaming like banshees comparing it with the bump stocks and rushing to begin silencer pregnancies.
What are they going to do? Ask for background checks? Register it with the Federal Government? Fingerprints? Tax? Waiting period? Anything that is not being done since frigging 1934? And how many crimes in the last 70-80 years involves NFA silencers ? If the Bloomies go stupid and make noises, they are going to find out the damn things are over-regulated and they will lose traction fast. Rather than screaming and blaming Orange Man, you should be slapping the opposition with facts…wait, that is too hard.
And wait, has anybody seen this silencer yet? Was it legally obtained or some shit manufactured in some metal shop? Or one of them famous “solvent traps”?
Cool your heels. Mind you, if you want to buy a silencer, go for it. I checked prices last night and I don’t think I could morally part with $800 (plus the $200 for the stamp) for a muffler when one for my truck cost 10 times less and will last years of daily use. In fact, it is still using the ones that came with the truck in 2001.
Play our game, not theirs. Ask them about the shooter and how come already they are trying to bury him the killings. Oh, damn. I forgot: We cannot mention the shooter either because it may encourage others. Funny, I figured that a Gun Free Zone is what encourages assholes like this to shoot indiscriminately at people. But that is OK, let’s play by the other team’s rules.
We are our own worse enemies.

Damn, looks like we got a case of Dr. J.KB and Miguel Hyde on the can issue…
I gotta drop the bean for Miguel – when the shit really hits the fan and I have a pressing need for a can, the tax stamp isn’t going to be a deterrent.
Miguel, you can be the optimist. I’m going to be the cynical pessimist.
The bump stock ban set a bad precedent and I’m not going to trust Trump on the gun issue ever again.
I am not sure pessimistic is the correct sentiment. I agree with J.Kb’s assessment and at the same time hope he is wrong.
I said my piece and I am just going to leave this:
The other side is smelling panic and will take advantage of it. Our side needs to grow a pair.
Mrs B and I have been talking about this for some time. We’re concerned for our hearing, even with good earpro, because we work in industries and have hobbies that also pose a risk.
So this little fracas finally tipped the balance for us.
I understand the point re the price, but we’re looking it as a medical device type purchase.
Boris, if you’re going to do it. Do it.
Most people don’t, simply because they don’t like the paperwork and the wait.
The sooner you buy one and get the form work started, the sooner you’ll have it in hand.
Most good NFA dealers are set up to take the pictures, process the forms and have staff that know how to properly roll fingerprints if you don’t know how to yourself. You can literally now get the paperwork in the mail the same day you pay for the can.
I’m lucky enough that one of the SOT LGS has an indoor range and if I want, I can shoot the suppressors I have ‘on lay-away’ there.
I double up on ear protection and still worry.
Same here on both counts.
I JUST “google’d” this piece of sh*t excuse for a human. IF it were ANYONE of a, ahem, different race I’m PRETTY sure that once I punch in the TRULY unique first name of “Dewayne” that his last name would have been in the drop down suggestions. NOPE. It was NOT listed at all.
I agree with your assessment of Dewayne but I Googled him thru Startpage and got 5 hits. Startpage sometimes “finds” things that Google hides.
I am so bookmarking that

Income: $200 – $249,999 That pretty much covers the lower 99% of incomes in the country.
After the first reports, I haven’t heard any more buzz about the guy using a can, so I’m going to default to what I call “First Law of Breaking News” – the first reports are ALWAYS wrong.
African American, Muslim AND a Democrat, of course the left will focus on the guns and ignore any discussion of motive or history. Conveniently, he did not survive to be interrogated, so you can make up any story you want. I’m sure the AOC crowd will be calling him a MAGA hat wearing homophobic klansman before long.
Black Muslim, explains why this is already falling off the news.
The ones I’ve been seeing are more around $400 for a good can, still costs just as much as the 300 blackout I just picked up but eh, there are some advantages to not being married.
