GA:Gun Mufflers for Hunting Passes Senate
Quote:Gun mufflers, also known as suppressors or silencers, have been approved for hunting in Georgia by the Senate.

The bill passed the senate 43-10. SB 93 will be considered by the house next.

A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Part 1 of Article 1 of Chapter 3 of Title 27 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to general provisions regarding hunting, so as to authorize the use of suppressors on hunting firearms under certain circumstances; to provide for suspension of hunting privileges for persons who are convicted of hunting without landowner permission, hunting in an area that is closed to hunting, or hunting big game out of season or at night with a suppressor equipped firearm; to provide for related matters; to provide an effective date; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

The United States has some of the most restrictive laws about the use and ownership of gun mufflers of any country in the world.

Most European countries treat the devises as simply another firearm accessory.

No one knows why gun mufflers were included in the National Firearms Act of 1934.
In that act, existing gun mufflers had to be registered with the federal government, and a tax of $200 paid, which was the equivalent of $4,000 today. As the gun mufflers were commonly sold for $10 or less, the law was an effective ban on legal ownership of the devices.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
I've never heard of the term "gun muffler."
When they come for my guns; It is not my right, at that point,
but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty.

Quote:The muffler for internal combustion engines was developed in parallel with the firearm suppressor by Maxim in the early 20th century, using many of the same techniques to provide quieter-running engines (in many English-speaking countries automobile mufflers are still called silencers).
