For Immediate Release:
Springfield, VA – Executive Director of Gun Owners of America (GOA) Erich Pratt issued the following statement after the introduction of the SHUSH Act:
"Gun Owners of America applauds Republican Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Mike Crapo of Idaho along with Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa for introducing the “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act” (SHUSH) Act. The SHUSH Act would not only remove suppressors (a firearm muffling device) from federal regulations, but also treat suppressors as any other firearm accessory – free from the infringing background check process. GOA believes this Act will not only benefit hunters and sport shooters, but also take much needed steps for gun owners to restore the Second Amendment."
The bill numbers for the SHUSH Act are S.1505 and H.R. 3139.
Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 1.5 million members and activists.
