State
Legislation

The American Suppressor Association anticipates that multiple states will attempt to ban suppressors in 2020. In response, holding the line at the state level is ASA’s top priority.

We have also set an aggressive agenda, called the No State Left Behind campaign, to pursue legislation in every state that does not currently allow for suppressor ownership or their use while hunting. We believe that every law-abiding citizen in America should be able to use suppressors to help protect their hearing, and will not stop until we have reached our goal.

Serving as subject matter experts, our primary state level initiatives are as follows:

  • Defend against state level attempts to ban suppressors
  • Private ownership (eight states currently banned)
  • Use of suppressors for hunting (ten states currently banned)
