Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Bob Good introduce SHUSH Act
Washington D.C. – Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Representative Bob Good (R-VA-5) introduced companion bills today to remove suppressors, or “silencers,” from federal regulation.
The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act (the SHUSH Act) deregulates suppressors by completely removing them from all federal regulation.
“Sen. Lee and Rep. Good 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 Good are doing with their bills.”
The SHUSH Act removes silencers from all federal control.
“Suppressors are accessories and should be treated just like magazines, scopes or gun stocks. Treating an accessory the same as a gun sets a bad precedence for anti-gun legislators to further regulate other accessories in the future. There’s no reason they should be subjected to the Brady registration scheme,” said Brown.
“We’re happy and privileged to be able to work with Sen. Lee and Rep. Good on this legislation, and excited to continue pushing forward,” Brown concluded.
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation's second largest pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members and supporters nationwide.
