The House of Representatives may still vote on the SHARE Act (H.R. 3668), a bill that would weaken an 80-year-old federal law that regulates the sale of gun silencers. Silencers disguise the sound of gunfire and make it difficult for people - including law enforcement officers - to recognize and locate an active shooter.
We are calling on Congress to reject and immediately forgo a vote on the SHARE Act. Rather than voting on legislation that would severely weaken gun safety laws and threaten the safety of our communities, Congress must implement common sense solutions that will help to prevent tragedies such as the recent carnage witnessed in Las Vegas.
