NRA Lauds Introduction of SHARE Act

NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has announced its support for H.R. 3668, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act. Introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus co-chair Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., the bill contains 16 provisions that support our Second Amendment freedoms.

The bill’s Hearing Protection Act would greatly simplify the firearm suppressor purchasing process, to the advantage of landowners and shooters alike. The SHARE Act would also offer enhanced protections for those carrying firearms on Army Corps of Engineers land; require the facilitation of hunting, fishing and recreational shooting on public lands; rework the federal “sporting purposes test” that unnecessarily complicates the importation of shotguns and rifles; and revise the Firearm Owners Protection Act’s interstate transportation regulations.

“I would like to thank Rep. Duncan for introducing this important legislation,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox said. “All Americans deserve access to our rich outdoor heritage and the tools that help make hunting and shooting safer.”

The House Natural Resources Committee has scheduled a hearing on H.R. 3668 for Sept. 12.
