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.

    Gun silencers should be banned at the Federal level, not deregulated.

    I am a shooter. I have been a shooter since 1960. I use hearing protection. I used hearing protection with silenced weapons in the military. I have never in my entire life felt the need for a silencer on civilian owned devices. You only need a silencer if you need to NOT be detected by something that might shoot back: like PEOPLE. We need restrictions on silencers and weapons of war at ALL levels.

    They have no lawful purpose and hinder detection of illegal shooters. If YOU want to shoot something buy a smaller weapon or use personal hearing protection.

    There is too much false information about suppressors. They simply do not reduce noise even remotely as much as Hollywood says. Primarly reduces noise enough to make shooting a bit safer.

    Sound suppressors don’t kill people they save ears. Please let us have them.

    Definitely. Deterring the purchase of anything by attaching taxes to those items is unconstitutional and just another way to get more of our money out of our pockets. Our government, instead, should begin managing our taxed money much more responsibly. For people who do not understand how silencers actually function, they do not make the weapon silent. They only cut down on the noise and do not eliminate it by any means. Silencers also do not improve accuracy or enhance precision.

    Absolutely not! Civilians do not need silencers. Stop deregulating good policies that protect citizens. Start regulating more. Like stopping the gun show loop hole!
