The Sound of Silence: H.R. 367 Hearing Protection Act of 2017

By

Keith Finch

February 14, 2017

For those who are quietly interested in silencers/suppressors gaining moment towards coming off of the National Firearms Act. Rep Jeff Duncan reintroduced a version of the Hearing Protection Act, Monday Jan 9 to the House Ways and Means and Judiciary committees.  I for one am looking forward to tracking H.R. 367’s momentum and see it passed allowing those of us that shoot to hear a little better, be more courteous of the noise to our neighbors, and just because it’s cool.  To be clear. It has not passed and this is not a law… yet.

 

Track H.R. 367 here at

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/367?r=21

 

So far it has 99 cosponsors, 5 committee actions, and a nearly identical bill in the Senate S. 59
