    Awkward name. :confused:

    H.R.367 - To provide that silencers be treated the same as long guns.

    Introduced to the 115th Congress on 1/9/17

    Currently 43 cosponsers. Though only one from my state :(

    Currently referred to the following committees: House Ways and Means, House Judiciary

    At this point it doesn't matter what POTUS might do, do not let it die in Congress. Start writing your elected officials to support this people!

    Since you're urging people to support a particular bill and not discussing the bill's specifics, wouldn't this be more likely to be seen by people who would contact their representatives if it were placed in the Activism forum?

    That probably would have been the better place. Thanks

    This only takes a second to send a message to your reps using the links provided above.

    NOW is OUR time to start rolling back the restrictions.

    If you have the time, make a phone call or write a hand-written letter. Those carry a lot more weight than an email or forwarded messages... unless your handwriting is like mine and you'd leave them wondering whether they just got a marriage proposal or a veiled threat (or both) in a language that only vaguely resembles English.

    Not surprisingly, none of the co-sponsors are from Illinois. :fire:
