The proposed silencer law is part of a broader law called the SHARE Act. The Share Act contains other hunting and recreational shooting related measures as well. Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) included the silencer provision as part of this broader bill. Congressman Duncan was practicing baseball this morning with Republican colleagues when a shooter named James Hodgkinson III fired at them. Just prior to the shooting, Mr. Hodgkinson allegedly asked Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) if the baseball players were Democrats or Republicans. The shooting was stopped by the security detail of Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). The gunman was injured at the scene and later died at a hospital.
