You have to love it when our elected officials make decisions and author bills without a complete understanding of the topic at hand.
They want to ban silencers as they think only criminals own them. I guess around 500,000 people who own them legally are criminals.
The “Help Empower Americans to Respond Act of 2019” or the “HEAR Act” aims to outlaw legal ownership of silencers (except the usual exceptions of law enforcement and the government).
I suggest reading any of these articles to learn more about this bill and see the ignorance with your own eyes. How do these people get elected?
