As the U.S. is left reeling after the devastating mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Congress is making moves for gun silencers to be easier and more affordable to purchase.
The NRA-backed “Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act,” or SHARE Act is currently live in Congress and must be stopped.
Inside the bill is a provision that makes it easier and more affordable to purchase a silencer. Currently, under the 1934 National Firearms Act, silencers are appropriately put in the same wait-time category as machine guns or explosives which is longer than handguns or other weapons. The SHARE Act is proposing this categorization be changed so that silencers, the technology that stops a gun from making a loud popping sound, aren't put under the same scrutiny.
This Bill is a deadly giveaway to the gun lobby and must be stopped.
Make a call to your representative and tell them to OPPOSE the SHARE Act and take a stand against the NRA.
