Hearing Protection Act ‘thwips’ past 100 sponsors in the House
A bill that would remove suppressors and silencers from National Firearm Act regulations is picking up momentum on Capitol Hill.
The Duncan-Carter Hearing Protection Act was introduced by GOP sponsors U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina and Rep. John Carter of Texas last month and aims to deregulate suppressors as a safety measure to help promote their use in protecting hearing. Enrolled as H.R. 367, the measure picked up its 100th co-sponsor last week.
