Suppressors and legality


Recommended Posts

So, this was an eye opener for me - posted by an attorney on a local (TX) gun forum:

Technically, suppressors are illegal in Texas, under State law. However registration pursuant to NFA is a defense to prosecution. That means if you are arrested and charged and you raise a reasonable doubt that your suppressor is registered then the jury must acquit.

Practically, registered suppressors are legal. If you have a copy of your paperwork you'll be fine. You could be arrested, lawfully, however. Not all cops are firearms enthusiasts. This is why I keep my Title II items in my trunk when traveling. I've never heard of a person being actually charged with 46.05 for possession of a registered suppressor.
