Suppressors have been on the backburner when it comes to the 2A conversation in America, the topic is always there but never up for debate, but things may change as one Senator in Oklahoma is aiming to takedown the ATF regulations on suppressors.
Oklahoma Senator Michael Bergstrom(R-Adair) has filed Senate Bill 1098, this piece of legislation aims to exempt suppressors made in the state of Oklahoma from federal laws and regulation outlawing them so long as they remain in the state of Oklahoma.
Under this proposal, residents of the state of Oklahoma would have the ability to purchase and use suppressors freely so long as they keep them in the state and arms companies would have the ability to manufacture suppressors without worry so long as they sold them in the state of Oklahoma.
Under current federal law, you are required to submit your fingerprints to the government, fill out extra paperwork, and pay additional fees in order to obtain a suppressor. This new bill in Oklahoma would allow the states residents to circumnavigate these rules if they purchase a suppressor that was made in the state.
It is sad to say, but if this bill does become law the courts will quickly cut it down. In 2013 Kansas passed a measure that nullified federal firearms laws, the very next year two men were charged with selling(and buying) an unregistered suppressor. The two men were convicted for violating the National Firearms Act(NFA) and when they went to take the case to the Supreme Court in 2019 the court declined to pick up the case.
