    No
    I just read the link
    It's very similar to the HPA and I don't get why they had to file this when the HPA was already filed last fall

    Makes you wonder what the differences are in the two

    Text: H.R.367 — 115th Congress (2017-2018)All Bill Information (Except Text)
    As of 01/11/2017 text has not been received for H.R.367 - To provide that silencers be treated the same as long guns. \n\n Bills are generally sent to the Library of Congress from GPO, the Government Publishing Office, a day or two after they are introduced on the floor of the House or Senate. Delays can occur when there are a large number of bills to prepare or when a very large bill has to be printed.

    You shouldn't even need that. I think that your doctor ought to be able to write you a prescription and have your insurance pay for it!

    Dear Mr. Crystalphoto:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the Hearing Protection Act of 2017. As the Senate considers this issue, I will keep your comments in mind.

    As your United States Senator, my primary job is to understand and represent the interests of all South Carolinians. The opportunity to hear from you about the issues confronting our nation is not only essential to representative democracy, but allows me to better serve the people of South Carolina. We will not see eye-to-eye on every issue; however, I promise to always give your concerns the consideration they deserve.

    I encourage you to visit my website — http://lgraham.senate.gov — as it will have information on the most recent activities before the U.S. Senate. You can also sign up for our e-mail newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages which will provide the latest information and updates on the major issues facing our state and our nation.

    Just FYI...Over here suppressors are fairly easily obtainable. I had to get a variance on my Fire Arms Certificate that told the government that I wanted to get a supprssor for my .223, and pay @$30 for the paperwork. (I had bought the .223 and it included a suppressor, but I had to get the variance before I could collect the suppressor from my LGS.)

    If I want to get a suppressor for a .308, I would need to get another variance on my Fire Arms Certificate and pay another $30.

    Suppressors are available to us because they are important for hearing protection for game keepers on the estates around the UK. It's an Health and Safety issue.
