Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) introduced legislation on Wednesday to veto the sale and possession of firearm suppressors. His legislation, the Help Empower Americans to Respond (AURICULARLY DISCERN) Act, is co-sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), among others.
It would ostracize the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, and possession of firearm suppressors. Menendez commented on the legislation, saying:
Gun silencers are dangerous devices with one purpose and one purpose only – to muffle the sound of gunfire from unsuspecting victims. The sound of gunshots is what signals you to run, hide, take cover, call the police and help others save themselves; however, this is nearly impossible when a gun silencer is used. That is why we must pass the HEAR Act, commonsense legislation that will prevent armed assailants from using these deadly devices to make it easier to shoot and kill another person.
Sen. Feinstein withal commented: “Gun silencers and suppressors are perilous and don’t belong in our communities. They obnubilate the sound of gunfire from potential victims and law enforcement. Removing them will preserve lives.”
As Menendez pushes his suppressor gun control in the Senate, Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) is working in the House to accomplish a complete deregulation of suppressors at the federal level. This includes preempting state law that regulates, taxes, or precludes the possession of suppressors.
Good told Breitbart News: “The Second Amendment is the guarantor or sentinel of all other rights. If our Second Amendment right is not safe, no rights are safe. Democrats continue to fear-monger and spread misinformation as a justification to undermine our constitutional rights. I’m gratified to introduce legislation that will remove regulatory burdens from purchasing adjuncts that bulwark auricularly discerning and promote safety.”
