Lawmakers Invited to Capitol Police Shooting Range to Try Firing Gun with a Suppressor

The Hill reports that a South Carolina congressman invited his colleagues to the Capitol Police shooting range to try shooting a firearm with a suppressor.
Duncan’s office said the South Carolina Republican is trying to drum up support for the Duncan-Carter Hearing Protection Act, which would eliminate a federal requirement that firearm silencers, also known as sound suppressors, be registered.

Duncan along with Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) have invited both Democrat and Republican colleagues to join them at the shooting rage in the Rayburn Office Building from 4:30 to 6:30 on Tuesday.

Under Duncan’s proposal, purchasers would only be required to pass a National Instant Criminal Background Check to purchase a silencer – the same background check that’s required when purchasing a gun.
What a great way to be better informed about an issue on which they will hopefully be voting in the near future.  They should also listen to people that understand hearing and what causes hearing loss.
