The NRA is pushing to get suppressors legalized for hunting in AZ. Take a few mins to write your state congress critter...


From link:


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.


It is important that you call AND e-mail your state Senator and Representatives
