The NRA is pushing to get suppressors legalized for hunting in AZ. Take a few mins to write your state congress critter...
State Representative David Gowan (R-30) is preparing to introduce NRA-backed legislation that would allow hunters in Arizona to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting.
In order to acquire a suppressor/silencer, a purchaser must submit the appropriate paperwork to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives where long wait times are common (4-6 months), undergo a FBI background check, find a licensed dealer authorized to conduct the transaction and pay a one-time $200 tax for each device. While suppressors/silencers do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report of a firearm much in the same way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a car or truck. There are many benefits to suppressors/silencers: (1) increase accuracy, (2) make shooting more enjoyable by lessening felt recoil and reducing muzzle blast, (3) protect shooters’ hearing and (4) help reduce noise pollution.
Noise complaints are causing closures of shooting ranges, informal shooting areas and hunting lands throughout the country. Increased use of suppressors/silencers on shooting ranges and hunting lands will decrease these detrimental complaints.
Currently, more than half the states allow some form of hunting with suppressors/silencers. It’s time that hunters in Arizona enjoy the same opportunities available to residents in more than half of the country. For more information on suppressors and their benefits, please click here.

sign up for their alerts, The NRA is useless and choosy when it comes to what rights they think are worth defending. AZCDL is the most successful civil rights organization in the country, and well worth supporting.
This thread is like watching Jerry Springer, but with shotguns.
"Could it all be a bad dream, or a nightmare? Is it my imagination, or have we lost our minds? It's surreal; it's just not believable. A grand absurdity; a great deception, a delusion of momentous proportions; based on preposterous notions; and on ideas whose time should never have come; simplicity grossly distorted and complicated; insanity passed off as logic; grandiose schemes built on falsehoods with the morality of Ponzi and Madoff; evil described as virtue; ignorance pawned off as wisdom; destruction and impoverishment in the name of humanitarianism; violence, the tool of change; preventive wars used as the road to peace; tolerance delivered by government guns; reactionary views in the guise of progress; an empire replacing the Republic; slavery sold as liberty;"
