Soon firearms owners will be allowed to have firearm noise suppressors and use them too, all thanks to a measure that passed the Senate yesterday on a unanimous vote.

Under current Washington law a person can own a noise suppressor but it is “a gross misdemeanor crime for a person to use any device or contrivance for suppressing the noise of any firearm.”

“That’s like saying it is OK to buy a TV set but it’s illegal to turn it on,” said Rep. Brian Blake, who sponsored House Bill 1016. “My bill simply brings coherence to the statute by making it legal to use suppressors that are duly registered in accordance with federal law.”
