This same law is in effect in several states. I suspect that the majority of us will continue to get the stamp. I can not take a "Texas made" suppressor put out of state. That makes it no help to me. 80% of my hunting is out of state. But just like sanctuary cities, the Fed's have no authority on this in Texas. If the Fed's were to raid your home or business for any other reason and you had suppressors without a stamp, they would stack charges, bank on it. But a Texas resident, in Texas, with a suppressor that is appropriately stamped "Made in Texas" is protected from any attempt to prosecute by any state, county or local official. But who wants to be the first to challenge it? lolDoes anyone think for one minute that the fed government is going to allow any state to circumvent their $200.00 tax???? Why do you think that Biden wants to put a tax stamp on AR pistols now?? The discussion on the AR pistol is not that they are a deadly weapon and should be regulated, but taxed so more of our money for them to spend.
This debate on suppressors has been going on for years and will continue. Remember the "Hearing Act" that was proposed years ago? It doesn't matter if it is a dem or Republican official in government both sides will never give up that $200 per unit.
I would not challenge the ATF on what they think. They are always going to be right and their law rules above any state. They rule like the we think of the KGB in Russia. Don't take me wrong I am not calling any of the US ATF agents KGB, but don't mess with them. If you think you can challenge ........ Look at Rubby Ridge, Waco.
