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.
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.
