Silencers are great for protecting your hearing ...


 ... and reducing noise as a courtesy to those around you, but silence is never good when it comes to leading your representatives in DC ...
In a potential leap forward for Second Amendment principles, the Hearing Protection Act of 2017, which would deregulate suppressors, is about to go the House floor for a vote and your representative needs to hear from you.
Encourage GOP Representatives
Below, see how you can easily email and phone your GOP United States Representative and tell him or her that now is the time to stand up for the Second Amendment. Actually, it’s always the time to stand up for the Second Amendment, but this bill certainly gives them the opportunity to go on record as pro-gun. This is where Second Amendment campaign rhetoric gets put to the test. Use the links, phone numbers and the copy/paste text provided below to contact your representative regarding this matter—if your representative is a Republican. If you don’t know who your representative is, CLICK HERE to find out—look for “Find Your Representative” at the upper-right portion of the page and plug in your zip code.
You are free to phone some of the other representatives on the list as well. It can only help.
