State law currently makes possession of a suppressor illegal unless you have an NFA license. The new law will dispense with that and as long as the suppressor is "Made in Texas" according to the rules of the law, state and local law enforcement should leave you alone. However, the feds could still arrest and prosecute you if you don't have the NFA tax stamp/license and you actually build/buy the suppressor.

There is no NFA license. You pay a tax for the privilege of owning one. Its a tax stamp. If a law enforcement officer wants to see you tax stamp, politely tell him no, it a tax document unless he's a Treasury agent.

Follow that advice and there is a good chance you will get locked up and your gun seized.

I've already done it with a Sheriff's deputy at a public gun range. The range officer looks at the deputy (not in uniform) and told him I was right. It is not against the law to use an NFA weapon for legal purposes.
Now, it he would have been an ATF agent, and identified himself as such, it would have been different, I would have complied. But not for Barney Fife.

Cool story bro, but fact is it is illegal till Sept 1 for silencers, and all other NFA remains illegal after that.

I have a legal suppressor with a tax stamp, so that's not an issue, I chose to stand my ground and my rights, that's all.
I got my suppressor before the current 41f procedures went into effect, using a trust. This way I can pass it along without a hassle.
I most probably will not have a suppressor without following the ATF regulations and pay the tax fee.

That is all well and nice, but Texas law is pretty clear on this.

So today's bad dealer announcement - I think that is how they will fight the Texas Suppressor law - Ok TX cans are outside NFA. But if you are an FFL - and you sell them. Your lic is pulled forever.

No they dont. There are significant differences and ours has a lot more protection. But neither has protection against stupid.

Do you believe the feds won't arrest people in Texas who possess a surpressor without a federal tax stamp?

Wanna bet?
