Suppressed shooting = Big news (due to rarity). Big news = 6pm News. News coverage = local LE didn't have to notify. ATF appears on your door. Was the $200 and a bit of a wait worth it?What if you use a firearm with a suppressor that is not NFA registered to defend yourself at home? I assume that the case would only be handled by Texas law enforcement so there would be no Federal involvement so no ATF to worry about right?
Why on earth would the can still be attached when the cops get there?What if you use a firearm with a suppressor that is not NFA registered to defend yourself at home? I assume that the case would only be handled by Texas law enforcement so there would be no Federal involvement so no ATF to worry about right?
I'm confused. Aren't drugs regulated on the federal level? How do states get to legalize them then?

Don't think this is a tidbit, this is the actual purpose of the law. Use the State Attorney General resources to fight the interstate commerce nonsense.Just noticed this tidbit in the silencer law:
Sec.A2.054. ATTORNEY GENERAL. On written notification to the attorney general by a United States citizen who resides in this state of the citizen ’s intent to manufacture a firearm suppressor to which Section 2.052 applies, the attorney general shall seek a declaratory judgment from a federal district court in this state that Section 2.052 is consistent with the United States Constitution.
Here is your chance to be that guy and send written notification.
Then you can be the one who got the law struck down.
I don’t disagree with their definition of may. I find fault that they’re willing to nitpick the definition of may and completely ignore that notice, as defined in TPC 30.05 specifically requires oral or written communication, which precludes only a symbol or icon. Written word or oral language must be included to trip the notice requirement.
