Arizona Attacks Animals
The lamestream media told you:
The Arizona legislature looks ready to pass, and governor Brewer seems ready to sign, a bill to allow hunting with legally owned silencers. Yet another wild idea from our state capital, hunting with silencers is unsporting and unfair to game, since it gives them no warning, according to hosts on KFYI-AM 550 radio.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Americans buy more than 27,000 silencers each year according to SilencersAreLegal.com. In its effort to promote the economy and help provide jobs, the federal government delays the purchase of silencers by as much as 120 days or more, to handle the paperwork, on top of the $200 tax per item. If you cannot imagine any private business operating like that, and staying in business, you're not alone.
In Europe and other developed countries, using silencers for hunting or at the range is considered an important health issue, since it protects hearing, and required in some jurisdictions. In France, where modulators (the British term) are not required at the range, they are considered a courtesy to other shooters. See The Worldwide Gun Owner's Guide for more worldly gun info.
If OSHA was doing its job, it would help make modulators widely available, for the beneficial health aspects they provide. If modulator sales tracked firearm sales, the one million or more units monthly would be a tremendous economic stimulus.
