American Suppressor AssociationU.S.A.-( At the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta we heard from our sponsor companies and spoke to a lot of attendees about the Hearing Protection Act. The most common question, of course, was “what is the status of the hearing protection act?”

As we’re sure that many of you have grown tired of answering the same question over and over, we started answering their question with a question of our own – “Have you called, emailed, or written your elected officials and asked them to support the HPA?” We were shocked that the answer, almost unanimously, was “No.”

Sitting on the sidelines with fingers crossed and hoping the HPA will pass will not create the kind of overwhelming pressure on our electorate to move this bill forward. Hope is real… it’s just not a strategy for success.

You know that it takes less than a minute to visit and send an email to your elected officials. To date over 225,000 letters have been sent. But do your friends know? We know that you are getting asked the same question. It’s time for you to employ the same strategy of answering their question with a question to spur them to take action.

And remember – you don’t have to stop at sending an email once. The one person we spoke with that actually said he had sent emails to his elected officials through our site said, “I do it every week!” We encourage you to adopt the same weekly routine.

In other news, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) became the 14th cosponsor of S. 59. Also, H.R. 367 climbed to the #2 most viewed bill at this week and added two cosponsors, bringing the total to 139. Let’s keep up the pressure!
