I have huge news, Fellow Patriot

Dear Fellow Patriot,

If you are ready to restore the Second Amendment in our country, you’ll want to keep reading.

The “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act” (SHUSH Act) -- a bill that would end the foolish Federal control on firearm suppressors -- has been introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senator Mike Lee and in the U.S. House by Congressman Steve King!

Drafted by NAGR, the SHUSH Act is the farthest reaching bill relating to suppressors in Congress.

It removes ALL Federal restrictions on suppressors, simply treating them like any other firearm accessory (instead of heavily regulating them like machine guns, which is current law).

Thanks to you and your fellow pro-gun Americans, the National Association for Gun Rights has a real chance to pass the SHUSH Act!

And in order to do that, our goal is to add the maximum number of cosponsors on this vital legislation.

In August, Congress will commence their summer recess, and head back to their home states.

We MUST use their time back in their districts to really turn up the heat.

To launch a Cosponsor Blitz, you and I must turn up the pressure like never before.

You see, there are still scores of Congressmen and Senators who claim to be pro-gun – but have not cosponsored the SHUSH Act.

They are ripe political marks for our cosponsor programs.

At the same time, the current cosponsors must have no question that action on the SHUSH Act remains a top priority for you.

The fact is, in order to convince Congressional leadership to schedule hearings and ultimately fully legalize suppressors, you and I need all the cosponsors and grassroots pressure we can mobilize.

To do that, you and I must flood Congress with a tidal wave of petitions.

That’s why your National Association for Gun Rights has ramped up nationwide recruitment of voters in every state with the goal of identifying and mobilizing an additional 200,000 voters in targeted districts and states . . .

. . . voters who believe strongly that the Second Amendment must be restored fully in our country.

We already have a majority in Congress that claims to be “pro-gun,” at least in some general sense.

So my ultimate goal is to identify 9,000 committed pro-gun households in each of those target districts throughout the country.

Of course, mobilizing this much national grassroots pressure is expensive, but it is the only way we’ll reach the majority in Congress we need to pass the SHUSH Act.

And if successful, you and I could add at least 20 to 25 new cosponsors in the House and the Senate in the next 45 days!

But to run this Cosponsor Blitz, your NAGR must raise an additional $90,000 by August 8th.

I know that sounds like a lot, but trust me, every penny is necessary with an ambitious national plan like this.

Our cosponsor targets will be flooded with the voices of thousands of pro-gun Americans like you, urging them to add their names to the SHUSH Act.

The Cosponsor Blitz plan includes:

*** Mobilizing tens of thousands of pro-gun households to generate a flood of additional petitions and recruit dozens of new cosponsors;

*** Placing targeted emails and Facebook ads in key swing districts;

*** Ongoing personal lobbying of targeted Congressmen; and

*** Expanding our nationwide phone and mail campaign to mobilize an additional 300,000 hard-core pro-gun voters in targeted states and districts.

So will you please agree to a donation of $20 or more today?

You and I must make sure that every cosponsor target, as well as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, are inundated with petitions from thousands of pro-gun Americans.

That’s why it’s critical you contribute as much as you can, whether it’s $20 or some other amount, to this Cosponsor Blitz.

Every new pro-gun American we contact means another petition on the desks of our cosponsor targets.

And these petitions are the key ingredient in your National Association for Gun Right’s plan to pass the SHUSH Act.

You see, whether or not the bill passes, just compelling a vote on the SHUSH Act is a win-win.

If you and other pro-gun activists pour on enough pressure, we can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-gun platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.

And even if the SHUSH Act doesn’t pass immediately, the public attention will send another crew of radical gun grabbers down to defeat in the next election.

But all of this is dependent on your action today, Fellow Patriot.

So will you please agree to a donation of $20 or more today?

Even if it’s just making a donation of $20 or some other amount, please do so.

Without your support today, the National Association for Gun Right’s Cosponsor Blitz may not have the impact required to build momentum for the SHUSH Act.

So please click here to make your most generous contribution today.

For Freedom,

Washington D.C. – Late last week, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Representative Steve King (R-IA) introduced companion bills to remove suppressors, or “silencers,” from federal regulation. The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act of 2017 (SHUSH Act), introduced as S. 1505 and H.R. 3139, further deregulates suppressors by completely removing them from all federal regulation – going further than the Hearing Protection Act.

“Sen. Lee and Rep. King are champions for gun rights, and their joint legislation displays their dedication to restoring the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Most in Congress who support silencer freedom want full deregulation, and that’s exactly what Lee and King are doing with S. 1505 and H.R. 3139.”
