NFA Freedom Alliance Statement on “The Hearing Protection Act of 2015”
As the nation's strongest advocacy organization for National Firearms Act issues and related Second Amendment rights, the NFA Freedom Alliance supports all efforts to advance the rights of law-abiding people to own and use all items regulated by the National Firearms Act.We believe that Rep. Matt Salmon's bill to remove suppressors from the regulatory reach of the National Firearms Act is a signal that Americans want to modernize this antiquated law and ensure that suppressors are readily available to all law-abiding people for self-defense, hearing protection, and sport.With the outcome of countless Second Amendment liberty issues hinging on the result of the 2016 presidential election and the retention of pro-Second Amendment majorities in both the U.S. House and Senate, we at NFA Freedom Alliance remain focused on achieving the ultimate goal of complete NFA firearms freedoms.This year, the NFA Freedom Alliance crafted and successfully lobbied to pass an unprecedented four bills in four states that helped millions of Americans own and use NFA regulated items.We look forward to building on those successes in the upcoming legislative cycle.MEDIA CONTACT:Todd Rathner, Executive DirectorNFA Freedom Alliance
