Hearing Protection Act Added to Sportsmen’s Omnibus SHARE Act

Suppressor legislation hearing protection act SHARE Act

This article courtesy U.S. Law Shield
Here’s good news for gun owners, and especially fans of suppressors. The Hearing Protection Act has been attached to the SHARE Act, an omnibus bill with numerous pro-gun features. The SHARE Act (Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act) contains multiple provisions expanding gun rights. If passed in its current form, the SHARE Act would make the following changes to Federal law:

1. Move silencers/suppressors from Title II to Title I status.
2. Enhance the Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA) language to include travel by means other than vehicles.
3. Create remedies against states that violate the safe travel provisions, including a cause of action and attorneys fees.
4. Eliminate the sporting-purposes language from the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the law on armor-piercing ammunition.
6. Creates exception for shotguns to prevent arbitrary reclassification as destructive devices.

“The Hearing Protection Act has been one of the most important bills for sportsmen and women of this Congress, which is why it’s common sense for it to be included in this year’s sportsmen’s legislative package,” Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), the bill’s sponsor, told POLITICO. “By changing the outdated regulation of suppressors to an instant background check, just like the requirements to purchase a typical firearm, I hope the sportsmen and women in the United States will have greater access to noise reduction technology as they carry the hunting and recreational shooting tradition to future generations.”

This video discusses an earlier version of the Hearing Protection Act, H.R. 3799:

SHARE Act Hearing Protection U.S. Law Shield“If this bill passes,” said U.S. Law Shield Attorney Michele Byington, “it will make suppressors Title I items like firearms — that is, not National Firearms Act devices — which means they will become more common and more widely transported. However, at least 10 states will likely ban suppressors even if this becomes law. About the same number of states have some kind of restriction on ammunition-feeding devices, also known as magazines. FOPA safe travel won’t do us much good if gun owners can still be arrested for magazines and accessories. Attaching the HPA to a bill that should make it easier to pass and suggests that Congressional Republicans may have become serious about actually passing this,” she said. “Passing this bill would be a big win.”
