Hearing Protection Act Takes Step Forward

The Hearing Protection Act has reportedly been attached to the SHARE Act. The SHARE Act addresses a wide range range of topics, which makes it an omnibus bill.

Some of the topics covered:

  • Fishing Protection
  • Target Practice
  • Self-defense on recreational lands
  • Recreational fishing, hunting and shooting.
  • Farmer and hunter protection
  • Migratory game birds
  • Archery
  • Interstate transportation of firearms or ammunition

The act also protects shotguns, shotgun shells, and large caliber rifles from arbitrary classification as “destructive devices'”

The SHARE is maybe the largest piece of legislation to address sportsmen since the Federal Firearms Act of 1968. It would potentially undo decades of anti-gun laws and agendas.

President Trump has told voters that gun owners would have a friend in the White House. If  this bill is passed, hopefully he will sign it. With the GOP controlling both houses, we have to strike while the metal is hot.  We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to abolish decades of archaic laws.
