Sig Sauer's John Hollister on Prospects for Hearing Protection Act

At the NRA Annual Meetings last weekend, John Hollister of the SIG Silencer Team and Michael Bane of The Outdoor Channel talked Suppressors.  During the conversation Bane asked about the prospects for passage of the Hearing Protection Act (HPA).  Hollister said he believes it will pass, but not this year (at the 4:38 mark of the below video).
I had the opportunity to speak with Hollister in the hotel Saturday afternoon and he said he believes it may take several years to pass the HPA but he does believe it will eventually pass.  I told him my fear was if it is not done in the next two years, or at least the next four, our window of opportunity may close due to politics and political changes in Congress or the White House.  He said every gun owner needs to go to the American Suppressor Association web site and complete the form that will send an email to your congressman and senators to support the Duncan-Carter Hearing Protection Act of 2017 (H.R. 367) in the House and the Hearing Protection Act (S.59) in the Senate.
