  • Ask your representative to cosponsor HR 3139 - GOA Take Action

    https://cqrcengage.com/gunowners/app...ementId=395493

    GOA has alerted gun owners this year to great legislation in Congress that would protect your ears and hearing while you spend time enjoying your Second Amendment rights.
    *
    Today, that effort took a step forward.
    *
    A House subcommittee heard testimony on HR 3668 -- a “sportsmen’s bill” which, among other things, will make it easier for you to purchase firearms suppressors. *The bill also makes a lot of minor corrections to federal gun law.
    *
    But the sponsor of this bill -- South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan -- took a major step forward when, earlier this year, he agreed to amend his sportsmen’s bill with provisions to protect gun owners’ hearing.*
    *
    He did this by including language that removes suppressors from the licensure requirements of the 1934 National Firearms Act (NFA) -- meaning that you could purchase suppressors for your firearms without paying a tax or submitting to a waiting period.
    *
    For that, we commend Rep. Duncan.
    *
    Now, Congressman Steven King (R-IA) is prepared to take this legislation a step further, offering an amendment to completely remove all federal regulations on suppressors, both under NFA and under the 1968 Act and the Brady law.
    *
    This means that you would be able to purchase a suppressor without a background check.
    *
    King’s amendment is based on his Hearing Protection Act bill (HR 3139).
    *
    King’s plan is a fantastic idea, because if suppressors are to be removed from the federal licensure requirement, what sense does it make to continue requiring the government’s permission to purchase one?
    *
    The King amendment would essentially treat suppressors as any firearms accessory (scope, magazine, etc.).
    *
    Congressman King is expected to offer his amendment when the sportsmen’s bill comes up in committee for a vote on Wednesday.
    *
    Obviously, not every congressman will have an opportunity to vote on the King pro-gun amendment this week -- only members of the committee will. *The opportunity to vote on the King language in the entire House may come later.
    *
    So that’s why GOA activists all over the country should begin contacting their congressmen now, in favor of the Hearing Protection Act (HR 3139).*
    *
    Doing so will help create a “buzz” in favor of the King amendment when it is voted on this week.*
    *
    And that’s why gun owners should email their congressman right away.*
    *
    Your message is simple: *Please cosponsor and support the Steve King bill (HR 3139), which removes suppressors from federal firearms regulation.
    *
    This will go a long way to showing support for the Steve King amendment when the Committee on Natural Resources takes up the Duncan bill this week.
