SilencerCo’s expanding the lavish #FightTheNoise campaign they rolled out at the SHOT Show. Now in an effort to extend the movement to a younger demo, they’re partnering with mountain bike freerider Cam Zink. Press release with video after the jump . . .

March 16, 2015 – 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 symbolise 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.

As part of the movement and to reach broad audiences, SilencerCo is partnering with various public figures, beginning with professional MTB Freerider Cam Zink.

Some background:

Cam is a Mountain Bike Freeride extreme athlete who has won various prestigious competitions, including the Red Bull Rampage.  In addition to a being a well-respected and widely known Freeride athlete, Cam is also a firearms enthusiast.  SilencerCo met with Cam in beautiful Southern Utah for some riding and to experience shooting suppressed for the first time.

What is Fight the Noise™?

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™.

Why Fight the Noise?

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 (link provided for more information).  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.

How to Fight the Noise?

Speak up for your right to silence.  By joining the Fight the Noise movement, you are loudly stating that The Suppressed have had enough.  So how do you show your support?  Fill in the form below; you’ll then receive an official Fight the Noise kit – including the iconic tape seen throughout our campaign.  Once you’ve received your kit, snap a picture of yourself proudly wearing the Fight the Noise tape across your mouth; this will symbolize that you are a member of The Suppressed.  Post these pictures to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with the tag #FightTheNoise.  Your silent protest images will be shared in real time in the feed below as a reminder that when The Suppressed stand together, our voice will be heard.

The Suppressed: Leading the Movement

SilencerCo will reach out to you during important times of legislative action; by adding your voice, we can become that much more effective in making ourselves heard.  To thank you for your support, we will send regular supply drops of #FightTheNoise propaganda and enter you into our monthly suppressor and EasyTrust™ giveaways – the winners of which are chosen solely from members of The Suppressed.

Now and then we will up the ante and choose a compatriot to receive a never-before-offered gift – starting with VIP treatment at SilencerCo’s own Precision Rifle Series™ Quiet Riot Match this June.  You’ll fly, stay, shoot, receive instruction from a SilencerCo product expert, and be given your own personalized rifle and silencer – all for free.  Because leading a movement is no small feat, and we believe it should come with perks.

    • Going after suppressors separately as a health and safety issue is a better strategy. It’s more likely to succeed than an effort that includes machine guns. And any change that chips away at the NFA weakens the remaining restrictions.

  1. I think “why should I pay 200 bucks and wait a year to protect the hearing of everyone around me” would get more traction if it could be written in a more concise way.

    • There are some whisper quit ones out there. With the tax stamp and the lawyers needed to get them (in some states) you might have to take a mortgage out on your house. But they are out there.

    • and cheaper too! and that starts with removal of a ridiculous 200 tax stamp solely for the purpose of agency “funding” and all the ridiculous paperwork associated with such. Statists call this “job creation.” Create an agency to tax people so we can fund that agency. Great.

      • They would rapidly become cheaper if you could just buy one off the shelf like a spare magazine or holster, or any other gun accessory. It’s a niche market right now, which means higher prices. If they were a mainstream product, competition would increase, and prices would come down (and they’d get better at suppressing the noise, too).

        • Watch out! You sound like one of those capitalists! Pretty soon you’ll be spouting some nonsense like free trade and a right to work.

  2. I like the 870 with the suppressor on it. Maybe I should try that for skeet, or would it mess with the patterning?

  3. How about getting the NRA and NSSF off their lazy butts to repeal the entire NFA law they help create in the first place.

    • I expect the NFA machine gun registry/tax/whateverthef*ckyouwannacallit to be the very last piece of gun control to go down, primarily because it doesn’t gore too many people’s oxen.

      • ^^THIS^^

        Too many FUDDs, and non-FUDDs who “don’t want to be on a list” out there.

      • Absolutely right. Not only with the anti-gun retards fight its repeal tooth and nail, a lot of the wealthy guys who have spent $20K and up for a crappy pre-’86 Uzi or M-16 won’t want to see their investment evaporate overnight, so they won’t help in the fight to kill it (and some will probably actively fight against us).

        • Utter myth; those guys blow more than that on property taxes and ammo every year, and would absolutely love to spend that same 20 grand to get twenty times as many machineguns they can easily replace when worn or broken.

      • If one of these lawsuits succeeds, then it doesn’t matter what people think. If the machine gun ban falls, the rest of the NFA dominos will fall after it. Cut the head off the snake.

    • The NRA is the reason why the NFA didn’t also include all pistols. THE SBS/SBR regs it included was designed so that criminals couldn’t conceal carry weapons in public unless they were properly licensed. Of course, “criminal” was 1930s Democrat speak for “Colored”, because it’s so much easier to lynch somebody if they can’t fight back.

      • “Of course, “criminal” was 1930s Democrat speak for “Colored”, because it’s so much easier to lynch somebody if they can’t fight back.”

        The 20’s and 30’s were also the times of the Prohibition and the Chicago-style ‘Gangster’.

        Using the ‘New-Fangled’ automobile, the gangsters raced into towns to rob banks with Thompson sub-machine guns.

        It got to the point some towns installed a bullet-proof ‘Pillbox’ in the town square.

        That’s one of main reasons for banning ‘Tommy Guns’. Al Capone and his ilk.

  4. THIS is the kind of thing that could actually result in the repeal of the NFA.. This kind of social movement helps the actual voters understand how actual laws (not undefined “institutions”) affect them, and why they are bad. Specific and direct goals will get more people onboard than ideals that take ten days classroom instruction to comprehend and a lifetime to understand.

  5. So my concern here is that our elected leaders will simply mandate silencer use without removing any of the paperwork requirements for same.

    Boom (or poof) – instant backdoor gun control. You can buy any gun you want but, gee, to use it legally anywhere you have to have a silencer. That’ll be $200 and six months, plus the cost of the can, plus more money for a barrel swap and, let’s see, some gunsmithing time, and…

    • Can you say “disparate impact” lawsuit? That’s the real reason none of the schemes demanding we all have million-dollar insurance policies ever went through; all it takes is one poor black man who needs to be able to defend his family to file a “disparate impact” suit (obviously with NRA/NSSF/SAF backing of course) and suddenly every pol who voted for it might be losing his seat because he’s racist against poor black people.

      I mean why did you think Bloomberg did his level best to remove any videos of him admitting that he wanted to take guns away from black people? Even he isn’t immune from racism charges.

  6. Wish we had the choice here in VT…not yet. Would go a long long way towards not bothering others when target shooting, not to mention much reduce hearing loss all hunters seem to have by age 50 (especially waterfowl hunters). Perhaps recently submitted bill in state congress will gain traction if we are lucky.

  7. Whatever…only getting a silencer/surpressor if I don’t end up on a list/registration -& doesn’t cost thousands.

    • Everyone is on some sort of list, so don’t let that stop you from enjoying a silencer. They aren’t that expensive, most can be had for 800.00 (rimfire for less than 500.00) or less, including the 200.00 stamp. Of course, once you get the first one, you’re going to want another, and another, and another.

      • Prettysure commenting on TTAG & Facebook puts me in some crosshairs. There are so many places for my $ and this is WAY down the list…
