ASA Attends Bill Signing with VT Gov. Shumlin

On Thursday, July 16th, ASA General Counsel Michael Williams attended the ceremonial signing of Vermont bill H.5, which legalized private suppressor ownership there effective July 2nd.  Governor Peter Shumlin signed the ceremonial version of the law at the Barre Fish and Game Club in conjunction with Vermont’s annual Moose Permit Lottery.  Rep. Pat Brennan was also on hand to celebrate this victory for suppressor rights, and was the recipient of one of the pens Gov. Shumlin used to sign the law in recognition of his invaluable role in getting the legislation passed.  The ASA thanks Rep. Brennan, Gov. Shumlin, and the Barre Fish and Game Club for their help in making Vermont the 41st state to legalize private suppressor ownership.

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