Default Ohio: suppressors might be legal for hunting

A proposed rule change would allow suppressors to be used in hunting.

Hunting with an actual silencer is allowed in Germany. Yet, you have to prove the need. For example, rodent control in a grave yard. So, I could buy one for my AR15 with permission from the German government. In fact gun registration forms ask if the gun needs a silencer. Of course a silencer will cost me between 500 to 800 euros!

Somehow, suppressors have to follow strict rules similar to machine gun rules. Paperwork followed by a special permit which comes with costly taxes. And it can take many months for the approval to arrive. The usual stuff that comes with dealing with a Federal agency.

Its because the liberals always see them and always have seen them in movies being used for nefarious purposes whereas in the UK they have been the norm forever because its just plain rude to be so obnoxiously loud while hunting. IIRC they even released an O/U shotgun in england that is integrally suppressed

It's not that big of a deal, two copies of the form, two copies of fingerprints, a form that says I certify this is me, take that to the local sheriff, he signs off and you pay $200 tax, then wait for 6 months. The people who complain are either lazy or have a been convicted of something and they won't get passed by the local sheriff.

I don't think they have ever changed the price since they started the program.

it is that big of a deal! One should not have to jump through hoops for a tool that reduces hearing loss while shooting and reduces sound disturbing the neighbors.

Yeah and there are no extra hoops to jump through there to get one(other than the normal rigmarole to get a firearm in England) see American legislators are scared everyone is gonna go buy one and turn into Jason freakin Bourne and start assassinating people

When it was put in place they were afraid of poaching, I don't think very many crimes have ever been committed with a suppressed weapon, if any.

These laws have been in place a long time, without much change.

Manta, in england how much paperwork is there to own firearms ?
