Re: legal noise suppressors?
So - you're in Washington?
I think, and I certainly could be wrong, that the rational behind that is for newcomers.
Let's say I move to Illinois. I have to either sell my toys, or find some other place, out of state, to store them, until I get smart and move away from Illinois. Same for California or New York.
But if I move to Washington, at least I can bring it with me. I can't shoot it, but I can still own it. I don't have to sell it at a loss, or store it on the other side of the country.
Again, just my theory.
Another theory is that the lawmakers in that state are just total flippin' morons.
