    Dear Mr. Horner,



    Thank you for contacting me about the Hearing Protection Act of 2015. I value your opinion and appreciate the time you took to contact me.

    As a proud gun owner and founder of a small rifle manufacturing company, I strongly believe that the Second Amendment protects our individual right to keep and bear arms. Gun-related tragedies generate pressure to pass restricting legislation, but they would simply undermine the rights of law-abiding citizens without accomplishing their intended purposes. I will oppose all legislation that unconstitutionally restricts the right to keep and bear arms.

    Current regulations require buyers of suppressors to send an application to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), pay a $200 tax, and pass an arduously time consuming ATF background check.

    On October 22, 2015, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-5) introduced H.R. 3799, the Hearing Protection Act of 2015. If enacted into law, this bill would remove suppressors from regulations established under the National Firearms Act of 1934. There would be no application, no tax, and buyers would be required to pass the same National Criminal Instant Background Check (NICS) as law-abiding guns owners.

    H.R. 3799 was referred to the House Committee on Ways and Means, as well as the Committee on the Judiciary for further consideration. Although I do not serve on these committees, I will keep your thoughts in mind if the issue comes up for a full vote in the House.
    Thank you again for taking the time to share your opinions and concerns with me. Please visit my website to send another message, read my positions on major issues, and sign up for my E-Newsletter. I hope you will also share your experience with my offices and staff here. I look forward to hearing from you again soon. It is an honor to be your voice in Congress.



    Sincerely,




    Steve Russell
    Member of Congress

    It would have been great if this had been buried somewhere inside of 2009 odd pages of Omnibus.

    I talked to Markwayne about it. He figured it has little chance of passing and zero chance of being signed. I told him they should hide it in other legislation like the Dems always do. He laughed. I was serious. :-/

    Still needs to be supported... same thing happened with Open Carry in Oklahoma a number of times before it finally passed.

    Canned and inappropriate response. Why oh why would I think someone in Washington would give enough of a **** about Oklahomans to actually even read their emails?



    Already part of the "Washington Elite". Congrats for him. Time to start looking for his replacement.

    Suppresors are unregulated and easy to get in Europe so they have to be good - right? How can any progressive, forward thinking politician oppose them?
