BREAKING: Supreme Court rejects challenges to silencer laws.
CNN ^ | 6/10/2019 | Ariane de Vogue

Posted on 06/10/2019 7:46:24 AM PDT by carriage_hill

The Supreme Court on Monday denied a request to take up a challenge to a federal law requiring the registration of some firearms including silencers. Challengers in the case believe the Second Amendment protects such firearm accessories. An appeals court had held that a silencer is not a "bearable" arm protected by the Constitution. The case comes as a silencer was used during the recent Virginia Beach massacre and President Donald Trump suggested he'd look into restrictions on gun silencers. The Trump administration had also urged the court not to take up the issue. The order was issued without comment or recorded dissent.

Win how? SCOTUS upheld the requirement to register silencers (suppressors) and other NFA items.

Huh?

An appeals court had held that a silencer is not a "bearable" arm protected by the Constitution.

I misread the article; I’ve asked the nice AM to remove my post.

“WIN!”

Are you against silencers?

I realize they are NOT “arms” but worry this is a step in wrong direction.

Funny even not so gun friendly countries like Germany consider it gauche to show up at the range without one to protect your fellow shooters hearing. Common sense looses again, then again it is DC....

And besides, they're not "silencers", they're "suppressors", as anyone who's used a firearm with one will tell you.

"Silent" my arse. :-)

Me, too.

I have sent my emails and made my calls.
All shooters should as well, whether you've gone through the process to own a suppressor or not.

Depending upon your perspective, this could be viewed as neither a “win” nor a “loss” but more like a “WE’RE NOT READY TO PLAY AT THIS TIME”.

That first line is “If you choose not to decide”, etc.

I have a suppressor for my 3 AR-15s, and AR-15 SBR, from back in 2002.

Would think that if the court decides a supressor is not a firearm it should not be regulated.

Did you ever use one? They’re suppressors not silencers.
If you want silent shooting then use subsonic ammo. It’s not silent, but it isn’t any louder than a pellet gun.
