September 13, 2017 Press Release
This week, Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) delivered two statements strongly opposing the SHARE Act (H.R. 3668). While offering support for certain provisions – including one that would expand access to public shooting ranges, thus enabling enthusiasts, sportsmen and women, and beginners to learn responsible and safe gun handling – Congressman Brown pointed out other sections, such as Titles XV and XVI, would unnecessarily ease regulations on silencers and armor piercing ammunition, and weaken state and local gun safety laws. The Congressman further noted that the SHARE Act is no longer about protecting the safety and heritage of American hunters, but has become a vehicle for the gun lobby to boost firearm sales and roll back common-sense laws to prevent gun violence.
