senate Bill S. 202

SHUSH Act: Should Gun Silencers be Deregulated at the Federal Level?

Argument in favor

Silencers protect the hearing of hunters and recreational shooters, and this bill would make it easier for law-abiding people to access them while keeping background checks in place to prevent them from getting into the wrong hands.

Stop regulating things. This is a muffler on a car. Protect shooters hearing. Stop watching movies and shoot a suppressed weapon you won’t worry about anyone being silent.

The majority of the ones voting nay are probably doing so because the only suppressors the have seen are the ones in movies and television.

Argument opposed

Federal deregulation of silencers would enrich the gun industry and make it easier for silencers to get in the wrong hands, thereby threatening public safety by making it difficult for first responders to identify active shooters.

First, no citizen requires a silencer. Second I cannot support anything conservative Mike Lee advocates because the NRA is in his pocket.

NO TO DEREGULATION. The hearing protection argument is TOTAL BS. Noise cancellation earmuffs and earplugs are CHEAPER and MORE EFFECTIVE at protecting hearing and all the professionals know that! That’s why they all wear PPE. Suppressing muzzle flash and report to avoid detection by others is what suppressors are for. No civilian needs that.

Law abiding citizens can use ear protection, they don’t need silencers.
