Do Not Lift Restrictions on Buying Gun Silencers

Target: Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell

Goal: Do not allow the purchase of gun silencers without sufficient regulations.

Donald Trump Jr. is now backing the gun industry in the pursuit of new legislation to make gun silencers easier to buy, lifting the strict regulations that are in place to protect the public from concealed attacks. The gun industry and gun rights advocates have been trying to get rid of the restrictions for years. The support of the son of the president-elect and a Republican Congress could push the legislation through, despite the dangers it poses of by giving potential criminals or mass shooters the ability to conceal their attacks.

The bill will be framed not as a Second Amendment issue, but under the guise of public health. It is being called the Hearing Protection Act, and will be presented as an effort to protect the eardrums of gun owners. If it passes the bill will eliminate the tax and the nine-month approval period for buying a silencer, putting American citizens at risk for the benefit of the gun industry. Sign below to urge lawmakers not to pass this bill.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Ryan and Senate Leader McConnell,

The move to eliminate restrictions on the purchase of gun silencers encourages violence and puts the American people at risk. The Trump family may have campaigned as a friend to the gun industry and may be spinning the legislation as a public-health interest, but that does not justify giving potential criminals or mass shooters the ability to conceal their attacks. I urge you to look out for the best interests of American citizens over the gun industry, and uphold the current restrictions on buying a silencer.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. They make guns twice as large and harder to conceal. They lower the sound of the gun makeing the sound more hearing safe. This is a safety measure. They are already illegal for criminals, and will remain that way, just as guns are illegal for criminals to have.

    • Who writes this garbage? Firearms illiterates who bow at the altar of the liberal left. How many gun control groups teach gun safety to the very children they talk about protecting? None. Why not? Because they don’t want gun safety…they want gun elimination. Geez!

  2. If movies have right us something,is that silencers are “scary”.
    Please people don’t believe what you get fed by the media , do your own research and look up the crime stats, on how many suppressors have really been linked to crimes. Free your mind and make your own educated choices , not the choices of ignorant people.

  3. How is making me wait over 6 months for my legally purchased suppressor paperwork to be approved make you any safer? Makes no sense as I have legally bought four new guns and 1000 rounds of ammo during the same time frame and had them in my possession the day I bought them.

    Silly liberals…where has all your common sense gone?
