Bill to Fully Deregulate Suppressors Earns GOA’s Support

Springfield, VA – Aidan Johnston, Director of Federal Affairs for Gun Owners of America (GOA), released the following statement after Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Representative Bob Good of Virginia introduced the “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing” (SHUSH) Act:

Gun Owners of America applauds the introduction of this legislation. The SHUSH Act would not only remove suppressors from the federal regulations of the National Firearms Act, but also treat suppressors as any other firearm accessory – free from the infringing background check process. This bill will not only benefit hunters and sport shooters, but also take much needed steps for gun owners to restore the rights protected by the Second Amendment. GOA appreciates Senator Lee and Representative Good for leading on this issue.

The bill can be read here, and additional information about the legislation can be found here.

Gun Owners of America is a grassroots nonprofit which represents more than two million gun owners who are dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
