SilencerCo, the company known for its high-quality suppressor including the Salvo 12 for 12-gauge shotguns, which was a thrill to try out at SHOT Show last January, is launching a campaign to let the public know what our nation’s Second Amendment rights really are, specifically as they pertain to the NFA. While some may see this as a political issue, the reality is our Second Amendment right to bear arms and the NFA are topics in need of greater understanding, especially for the general public. Providing accurate information is an important – vital, even – part of gun ownership.
SilencerCo’s Fight the Noise™ campaign (officially referred to as a movement) is an effort to educate the general populace about individual rights and how they can play a role in supporting the broadening of personal freedoms related to the legal ownership of NFA (National Firearms Act) items.
First usage of this slogan was seen at SHOT Show 2015, at which SilencerCo was given the award of Best Booth. This was also the first usage of the Fight the Noise tape covering participants’ mouths, which will continue to be iconic in the movement and symbolize The Suppressed™, as they will officially be referred to. The Suppressed are law-abiding, gun-owning citizens whose voices have been oppressed by unjust legislation.
“Our Voice” from SilencerCo:
Fight the Noise is a movement to regain our Voice. To exercise our right to protect our hearing and silence the sound. To be responsible gun owners and be treated as such. We want law-abiding citizens to have the ability to purchase and own silencers without being subjected to excessive wait times, paperwork, and taxes. We are the silent majority, and it is our time to be heard. We are your Friends. We are your Coworkers. We are The Suppressed™.
“Our Rights” from SilencerCo:
We Fight the Noise because “that’s just the way it is” doesn’t mean that’s the way it should be. Because accepting hearing-damaging gunfire as the norm isn’t right, it isn’t responsible, and with your support, it won’t continue. Silencers were first subjected to added taxes, paperwork, and processing time back in 1934 with the introduction of the National Firearms Act (click here to learn more).We want to bring the laws surrounding silencer ownership into the twenty-first century and spread the word that yes, silencers are legal. The Suppressed are changing the perception of an industry and leading the revolution with a clear message: Guns don’t have to be loud.
