New Hampshire: HB 500 Signed into Law–Suppressor Hunting Now Legal

The American Suppressor Association is proud to announce that after 3 years and a lot of teamwork, suppressor hunting is now legal in the Granite State!  Earlier today, Gov. Maggie Hassan signed Rep. John Burt’s (R-Hillsborough)HB 500 into law, making New Hampshire the 40th state to legalize suppressor hunting.  We could not be more proud to have been part of the team that got this bill introduced, passed through both houses of the legislature, and finally signed into law!

NH State House

As you may recall, the ASA began working with the New Hampshire Sportsmen’s Caucus three years ago to introduce legislation to bring New Hampshire on board with the 17 (now 18) states that have legalized suppressor hunting since 2011.  We faced many obstacles along the way, including skeptical committee chairmen and Department of Fish and Game leadership, but in the end the logic in favor of allowing sportsmen and women to protect their hearing in the field prevailed.

The American Suppressor Association would like to thank a long list of people and groups who came together to make this day possible.  First and foremost, we are incredibly grateful for Rep. John Burt’s sponsorship of the bill, as well as his continued championing of the issue each step of the way.  We also could not have gotten here without the tireless efforts of Rep. Jeff Goley (D-Hillsborough), who was a constant champion from the Democratic side of the aisle.  At the federal level, Rep. Frank Guinta (R-NH) played a crucial role by making sure that the voices of his constituents were relayed to Governor Hassan. A special thanks is also due to Gov. Maggie Hassan for taking the time to learn about the benefits of suppressor hunting, and for signing HB 500 into law.

On the organizational front, we would like to thank the New Hampshire Sportsmen’s Caucus, and in particular Brent Miller, the Northeastern States Manager for the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, who testified and advocated on behalf of this bill on too many occasions to count.  We are also very grateful to New Hampshire-based Sig Sauer for the tremendous help they provided in pushing the bill past the finish line.  This was a true team effort, and could not have happened without the efforts of everyone listed above, as well as many more we haven’t named.

Finally, the American Suppressor Association is grateful for the support of our members, and we are very excited about bringing legal suppressor hunting to New Hampshire. We will continue to work towards our goal of legalizing suppressor ownership and hunting in all 50 states. Special thanks to New Hampshire for taking us one step closer!

New Hampshire: Suppressor Hunting Bill HB 500 Needs Your Help

The ASA has recently received word that HB 500, a bill that would make New Hampshire the 40th state to legalize suppressor hunting, will be sent to Gov. Hassan within the next several days.  But we need your help to convince Gov. Hassan that this bill, and the ability of sportsmen and women in New Hampshire to protect their hearing in the field, is an important step forward for the Granite State. Please reach out to Gov. Hassan and politely urge her to sign HB 500 into law when it reaches her desk. With your help, Granite State sportsmen and women will soon have the right shared by hunters in 39 other states to use suppressors to protect their hearing while hunting.

Gov. Hassan’s Contact Information

There are many benefits to using a suppressor, including:

  1. HEARING PROTECTION: Noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus are two of the most common afflictions for recreational shooters and hunters. Everyone knows that gunfire is loud, but very few people understand the repercussions that shooting can have on their hearing until it’s too late. Suppressors reduce the noise of a gunshot by an average of 20 – 35 dB, which is roughly the same as earplugs or earmuffs. By decreasing the overall sound signature, suppressors help to preserve the hearing of recreational shooters, hunters, and hunting dogs around the world.
  2. SAFER HUNTING: Most hunters do not wear not wear hearing protection in the field because they want to hear their surroundings. The trouble is, exposure to even a single unsuppressed gunshot can, and often does, lead to permanent hearing damage. Suppressors allow hunters to maintain full situational awareness, while still protecting their hearing. The result is a safer hunting experience for the hunter, and for those nearby.
  3. NOISE COMPLAINTS: As urban developments advance into rural areas, shooting ranges and hunting preserves across the country are being closed due to noise complaints. Although it can still be heard, suppressed gunfire helps mitigate noise complaints from those who live near shooting ranges and hunting land.
  4. ACCURACY:  Suppressors reduce recoil, and help decrease muzzle flinch. These benefits lead to improved accuracy, better shot placement, and more humane hunts.

The American Suppressor Association is grateful for the support of our members. Rest assured, the ASA will maintain focus on our No State Left Behind campaign until suppressors are fully legal in all 50 states.

Vermont: Gov. Shumlin Signs Bill Removing Suppressor Ownership Sunset Clause

Last week, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed H. 570 into law, thereby making suppressor ownership and use legal in Vermont in perpetuity.  As you may recall, Gov. Shumlin last year signed H. 5 into law, a bill that made Vermont the 41st state to allow private suppressor ownership.  One downside to last year’s H.5 was that it included a sunset provision on the use of suppressors at sport shooting ranges, which H. 570 repealed.  So, now that H. 570 has been signed into law, suppressor owners in Vermont no longer need to worry about having their ability to use suppressors at sport shooting ranges taken away by a sunset provision.  This is great news for suppressor owners in the Green Mountain State!

The American Suppressor Association would like to thank Rep. Patrick Brennan for his continued advocacy on behalf of your suppressor rights, as well as the Vermont Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, without whose efforts this bill could not have become law.  We are also very appreciative of Gov. Shumlin for his willingness to sign both H.5 and H. 570.

Although the ASA is very happy with the direction Vermont is in terms of suppressor rights, it remains one of three states where suppressor ownership is legal, but suppressed hunting is not.  As such, we will be back in Montpelier next year working on legalizing suppressor hunting in the Green Mountain State.

ASA ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH GUN TRUST USA™

WASHINGTON, D.C. –The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Gun Trust USA™, a leading provider of NFA gun trusts. In an effort to focus more time and resources on pro-suppressor reform, the ASA will no longer be selling NFA gun trusts directly. Instead, as part of the partnership, anyone who purchases a trust through Gun Trust USA™ will receive a complimentary one year membership to the American Suppressor Association.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with Gun Trust USA™,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of the ASA. “For nearly two years, selling trusts has been a great way for us to grow our membership. However, we do not have the resources needed to simultaneously advocate for pro-suppressor reform across the country, and provide the type of customer service that our members deserve. By working with companies like Gun Trust USA™, our members will receive the attention they deserve, and we will be able to maintain our focus on the legislative and regulatory issues.”

All NFA gun trusts and memberships previously sold through the ASA website will remain valid. For more information on Gun Trust USA™, please visit www.GunTrustUSA.com.

ILLINOIS: SUPPRESSOR LEGISLATION STILL ALIVE, NEEDS YOUR HELP

Salvo Hunting

For over two years, the American Suppressor Association has been working alongside the National Rifle Association to legalize suppressors in Illinois. On Sunday, May 29th, Senate Bill 206 was amended in the House Judiciary Committee to include language to legalize the possession and use of these hearing protection devices in the state. On Tuesday evening, the Illinois House of Representatives voted 69 to 46 to pass SB 206 in an overwhelmingly bipartisan fashion.

Unfortunately, the Senate did not take up the measure for a concurrence vote before adjourning just before midnight. However, because the Illinois General Assembly failed to pass a budget, they will be returning for a summer session, during which SB 206 can be called to the Senate floor for a vote.

If you live in Illinois, it is important that you contact your state Senator, and also call Senate President John Cullerton (D-6) at (217) 782-2728, and politely urge them to call to the floor and pass SB 206 during this summer session.  You can contact your state Senator and Senate President Cullerton by clicking the NRA-ILA’s  “Take Action” link.

We would like to thank all of those who took the time to contact their legislators in support of this important pro-suppressor reform. We would also like to thank Representatives Brandon Phelps (D-118) and Jerry Costello (D-116) for their hard work in passing SB 206 in the House. Without everyone’s hard work, we would not be where we are today.

Today, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to concur with a minor amendment made to Rep. John Burt’s (R-Hillsborough) HB 500 by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The changes removed the “Findings” section from the original language, but did not alter the functionality of the legislation. From here, the bill will now move to Governor Hassan’s desk for her signature. 

While this vote represents a major step forward towards making New Hampshire the 40th state to legalize suppressor hunting, we still need your help. Please reach out to Gov. Hassan and politely urge her to sign HB 500 into law when it reaches her desk.

AMERICAN SUPPRESSOR ASSOCIATION STATEMENT ON ATF 29P

Yesterday morning, the American Suppressor Association was made aware of Docket No. ATF 29P, an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) which seeks to gather public comments in reference to the marking requirements of suppressors. The comment period for ATF 29P, which was published in the Federal Register this morning, will run for 90 days, ending at midnight on August 2, 2016.

The summary of the ANPRM is as follows:

“The Department of Justice is considering amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to require licensed manufacturers, licensed importers, and nonlicensed makers to place identification markings on the outer tube of firearm silencers and firearm mufflers. The Department wishes to gather information and comments from the public and industry concerning whether or not the regulations should be amended.”

In short, ATF 29P is a solution to a non-existent problem. On April 17, 2008, the ATF issued a guidance stating that suppressors must be marked with a serial number “on any external part.” According to the ATF, the ANPRM was brought on by a petition filed by the National Firearms Act Trade and Collectors Association (NFATCA) on April 27, 2008. In the petition, the NFATCA sought to narrow the ATF’s guidance, asking that the ATF require manufacturers to serialize the outer tube of the suppressor. At the time, virtually all suppressors had outer tubes. Today, after eight years of exponential innovation, there are numerous suppressor models which do not. To our knowledge, there have not been any recorded problems regarding the markings on legally manufactured suppressors, tubeless or not.

Given that the ATF classifies any suppressor part as a suppressor, the ASA does not believe that the ATF should restrict where the manufacturer chooses to mark their specific models. ATF 29P has nothing to do with enhancing public safety. It is yet another clear and measured attempt by this administration to harass the suppressor industry. If public safety was their primary concern, they would have moved forward with this initiative when they received the petition in 2008.

The American Suppressor Association is working with industry to put together a comprehensive set of comments to oppose ATF 29P. If you are interested in filing a comment, please contact us at Info@AmericanSuppressorAssociation.com.

We will keep you posted as more details arise.

REP. STEWART ANNOUNCES SUPPRESSOR EXPORT ACT: A BILL TO LEGALIZE COMMERCIAL EXPORTATION OF SUPPRESSORS

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce the introduction of the Suppressor Export Act of 2016 (SEA), H.R. 5135, by Rep. Chris Stewart (UT-02). This legislation would require the State Department to allow the exportation of American made suppressors to existing commercial markets in friendly nations abroad.

American suppressor manufacturers are known world-wide as producers of the highest-quality firearm suppressors available on the global market. For this reason, allied foreign militaries and government agencies regularly equip themselves with American-made suppressors. Many foreign countries around the world also have thriving, well-established commercial markets for suppressors. These markets cater primarily to target shooters and hunters, and represent a major growth opportunity for the burgeoning American suppressor industry. However, the U.S. State Department currently prohibits the exportation of U.S. manufactured firearm suppressors to commercial end users, hindering the potential growth of domestic manufacturers.

“With no legitimate justification, the State Department is unilaterally preventing American manufacturers from competing in countries like the UK, France, and Norway,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of the ASA. “We know that the blanket prohibition is based on a single misguided internal memo within the State Department from 2002. In January of 2015, we submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to view the memos, but the State Department never responded. While they may be willing to sacrifice domestic manufacturing jobs, we are not. We applaud Representative Stewart and the 17 original cosponsors who have signed on to the Suppressor Export Act for their willingness to stand up to the State Department and let them know that American jobs are worth more than bad policy based on old misconceptions.”

Also known as silencers, suppressors are the hearing protection of the 21st century sportsman. Despite common Hollywood-based misconceptions, the laws of physics dictate that no suppressor will ever be able to render gunfire silent. Suppressors are simply mufflers for firearms, which function by trapping the expanding gasses at the muzzle, allowing them to slowly cool in a controlled environment. On average, suppressors reduce the noise of a gunshot by 20 – 35 decibels (dB), roughly the same sound reduction as earplugs or earmuffs. In addition to hearing protection, suppressors also mitigate noise complaints from those who live near shooting ranges and hunting lands.

Rep. Stewart’s Suppressor Export Act will give American manufacturers the opportunity to compete in established foreign marketplaces for the first time. When enacted, this common-sense legislation will create new manufacturing jobs within the fastest growing segment of the American firearms industry.

IOWA: SUPPRESSOR OWNERSHIP AND HUNTING NOW LEGAL

At 3:00 PM on Thursday, March 31st, Governor Terry Branstad signed House File 2279 into law, officially making Iowa the 42nd state to legalize the private possession of suppressors. Effective immediately, the new law also makes Iowa the 39th state to allow for the use of suppressors while hunting.

“The legalization of suppressors in Iowa is a tremendous victory for the law abiding citizens of The Hawkeye State,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of the American Suppressor Association. “For the past three years, the ASA has worked alongside the Iowa Firearms Coalition, the National Rifle Association, Rep. Windschitl, and, this year, Rep. Baxter to get this legislation passed so that the sportsmen and women of Iowa could use these benign accessories to protect their hearing while in the field and at the range. We are incredibly excited that Iowa is now one of 42 states that allows suppressor ownership, and one of 39 states that allows their use while hunting.” 

ASA Map - March 31, 2016

Since this issue was raised by the legislature in 2014, there have been numerous organizations, businesses, and individuals who have played an integral role in the legalization of suppressors in Iowa. The ASA would like to thank the IFC, and the NRA for their tireless work throughout the legislative process. We would also like to thank Tom Hudson and CrossRoads Shooting Sports for hosting the legislative suppressor demonstrations, which were some of the primary means of educating legislators on the realities of suppressors. We also thank Pete Brownell for his hard work, and Brownells for graciously hosting our upcoming suppressor rally.

Finally, we thank our members, and the thousands of people who supported the legalization of suppressors in Iowa. As a result of these combined efforts, 76 members of the House, and 46 members of the Senate voted in an overwhelmingly bipartisan fashion to pass this legislation. Thanks go out to them, as well as to Gov. Branstad for signing the bill into law. Without everyone’s efforts, this measure would not have succeeded.

To celebrate the new law, the American Suppressor Association will be hosting a public suppressor shoot from 10 AM to 1 PM on April 16th at the Big Springs Shooting Complex. We will be bringing the top manufacturers from across the country to showcase their products, and educate any interested Iowans on why they should be excited that Iowa became the 42nd state to legalize suppressors. Admission and ammo are free, so we encourage you to join us!

Rest assured, the ASA will maintain focus on our No State Left Behind campaign until suppressors are fully legal in all 50 states.
