As we’ve previously covered a number of times, the Hearing Protection Act (HPA) is a federal bill to reduce the burdensome and antiquated acquisition process for firearm suppressors. The bill would eliminate the excessive wait times (sometimes as long as a year) and the burdensome tax on transferring or making a suppressor.
Support for the HPA among gun owners remains very strong. The HPA has been one of the most viewed bills on Congress.gov since its introduction in January, and it has regularly been the most popular bill on the site. But, now more than ever, Congress needs to hear this support.
As members of Congress return to their home states and districts for the August recess, they often focus on constituent services, so now is a very opportune time to contact your elected representatives. Please contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative and urge them to support and cosponsor the HPA. If they already are a cosponsor, please thank them for their support.
