The House Was Expected To Vote To Deregulate Gun Silencers, But Now Its Future is Unclear

“The silencer issue, we think, is a pretty transparent gift to the gun lobby,” said Christian Heyne, legislative director at the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

Heyne argued that if gun owners are genuinely concerned about hearing loss they can purchase a silencer — they just have to go through the normal process that includes a background check and registering with the government.

“They haven’t been banned. They’ve been heavily regulated, but there are still over 900,000 silencers registered,” he said.
