Following an early-morning shooting at a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, the House Committee on Natural Resources has cancelled a hearing on a bill to make it easier for gun owners to obtain silencers. A Democratic congressional aide confirmed to The Daily Beast that the hearing, originally scheduled for 10 a.m., was to focus on the “Hearing Protection Act,” which had been rolled into a larger sportsmen's package called the SHARE Act. The Hearing Protection Act, introduced in January by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) and Rep. John Carter (R-TX), 2o17, would remove suppressors from the purview of the National Firearms Act of 1934, making it easier for gun owners to obtain them. The stated purpose of the proposed legislation is to protect the hearing of frequent firearm users.

Could it be that they have simply postponed this hearing as a result of yesterdays events, for "optics" purposes?

"Make it a shooting, and not a gunfight" LSP552 02/19/2011

"There are only two reasons why a proven technique doesn't work under stress: the shooter isn't adequately trained in it's application, or he/she doesn't really believe it will work because he/she is programmed for failure to begin with." BG

From the ASA newsletter

This week ASA Executive Director Knox Williams was on Capitol Hill holding meetings with members of Congress about the Hearing Protection Act (HPA). We do not yet have a date for a committee hearing on the SHARE Act, which incorporates the language of the HPA, but our meetings this week were very productive. The Hearing Protection Act of 2017 (H.R. 367, S. 59) was the #4 most viewed bill at Congress.gov last week. There are 154 cosponsors in the House, having added 13 new cosponsors in June. There are 17 cosponsors in the Senate, with Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) signing onto the bill last week. The volume of emails submitted through www.HearingProtectionAct.com continues to grow and is one of the first items mentioned when we walk into your Representatives' and Senators' offices for meetings.

We will continue to fight on your behalf in Washington, D.C. until the job of suppressor reform is done.
