SHARE Act One Step Closer to Passage

By Dave Dolbee published on in Legal, News

Undoing the laws passed by the last administration may be one President Trump’s crowning achievements. Hunters and sportsmen are the ultimate conservationists.  I would challenge that the National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Mule Deer Foundation, Whitetail Institute, and a host of others have each done more to protect wildlife and public lands than the antis have combined.

Hunters and sportsmen demonstrate respect for the game they pursue and revere the lands on which they pursue the game. Sadly, all the antis typically do is look for ways to disrupt the outdoor enthusiasts’ efforts through misguided legal challenges. Fortunately, organizations such as the NRA-ILA are fighting to secure our rights and expand opportunities. Here is the full release from the NRA-ILA.

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) commends the House Committee on Natural Resources for markup and passage of H.R. 3668, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act. Under the successful leadership of Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) and Subcommittee Chairman Tom McClintock (R-CA), the SHARE Act now moves to the full U.S. House of Representatives.

“Today marks an important step in protecting the Second Amendment freedoms of America’s hunters and sportsmen and strengthening our outdoor heritage,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA-ILA. “The SHARE Act will cut burdensome red tape that restricts millions of hunters and sportsmen.”

Supressor Selection

Suppressors are a great addition to most any caliber. They make shooting fun and reduce the chance of negatively affecting your hearing or those around you. In a home defense scenario, this is a serious consideration.

The bill secures access to Federal public lands for hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting and includes the Hearing Protection Act (HPA). The HPA is an important safety-oriented aspect of the bill that will help protect the hearing of America’s hunters by eliminating expensive and excessive regulations on suppressors. Other key provisions include:

  • Securing the future of hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting by increasing access to federal public lands.
  • Reforming of the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act (FOPA), which protects the lawful, legal transport of unloaded firearms.
  • Strengthening protections for carrying firearms on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.
  • Removing the undefined and antiquated “sporting purposes test”, which opens the door to arbitrary ammunition bans.
  • Returning wildlife management of the gray wolf to states adversely affected by rising populations.

“I would like to thank Chairman Rob Bishop and Subcommittee Chairman Tom McClintock for their leadership and critical roles in ensuring committee passage of the SHARE Act. Thanks to their efforts, we are one step closer to the day that all Americans will have better access to our outdoor heritage and the tools that ensure the safety of hunters and sportsmen alike,” concluded Cox.

    Alex is a dumbass. I almost think his comment is fake to rile people up with that strategic bad spelling. There is nothing bad about silencers period! So idiots need to stay out of this. I’m gona tell my 4 year old what to eat and if he doesn’t like it tough I’m not gonna sit and debate it with a 4 year old, he’s not allowed to have an opinion. I’m sick of scared dummies being allowed to have a seat at the debate table, who know nothing about the subject. Let me have what I want and don’t complain. You can go do extreme things like chop off your private parts and change your sex, break Gods law and create your own perversion of a “marriage “and be hailed for it, but I’m supposed to be told I can’t make my hobby just a small fraction more enjoyable with and exhaust pipe?? Ooooohhh nooooo!!!!! We can’t have that, noooooooo waaaayyyyy. Silencers are “bad”…….
