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?

Yeah, it's hardly in jeopardy
