Virginia Congressman Bob Good Introduces Legislation To Remove Firearms Suppressors From Federal Regulation

Earlier this week, Virginia Congresswoman Bob Good introduced legislation to take suppressors, or “silencers” off of the list of federally regulated firearms.

The Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act (the SHUSH Act) breaks the shackles of federal regulation imposed on suppressors by completely liberating them from federal regulation.

“Rep. Good is a champion for gun rights, and his legislation displays his dedication to restoring the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans,” proclaimed Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Most in Congress who support silencer freedom want full deregulation, and that’s exactly what Good is doing with his bills.”

The SHUSH Act removes silencers from all forms of federal regulation.

“Suppressors are accessories and should be treated just like magazines, scopes, or gun stocks. Treating an accessory the same as a gun sets a bad precedent for anti-gun legislators to further regulate other accessories in the future. There’s no reason they should be subjected to the Brady registration scheme,” Brown added.

“We’re happy and privileged to be able to work with Rep. Good on this legislation, and excited to continue pushing forward,” Brown said in a concluding remark.

Good has been a solid member of the House in terms of his advocacy for pro-gun causes. Naturally, NAGR and Good are a perfect fit for rolling back the gun control state. With divided Congress, it’s very unlikely that this bill will be passed. 

Nevertheless, the introduction of such legislation is a good conversation starter and will allow future Congressional leaders to continue pushing for similar legislative reforms in the near future.
