BATON ROUGE, LA – The American Suppressor Association (ASA), the unified voice of the suppressor community, is pleased to announce that Lipsey’s, one of the nation’s leading distributors of firearms and suppressors, is returning as a Tier 3 sponsor of ASA for 2019. Through the leadership of Laurie Aronson, CEO of Lipsey’s and ASA Board Member, Lipsey’s has stood out as a trailblazer in suppressor advocacy since 2014.
“The American Suppressor Association has played a vital role in the efforts of suppressor ownership in our country,” said Laurie Aronson. “They have successfully worked with so many other industry organizations and manufacturers to accomplish our common goals. Lipsey’s is grateful for their hard work.”
The American Suppressor Association began working with Lipsey’s in 2014 when Rep. Cameron Henry (R-82) and Senator Rick Ward, III (R-17) introduced legislation to legalize the use of suppressors while hunting in Louisiana. As an in-state business, Lipsey’s went above and beyond in support of the legislation, testifying alongside ASA in support of both bills. On August 1st, 2014, in large part thanks to Lipsey’s support, Louisiana became the 31st state to allow suppressor hunting for all game animals.
“Having worked with Laurie and her team at Lipsey’s for the past five years, I can honestly say that they personify the selfless commitment to advocacy that I wish every company in our industry shared,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “When we need help with legislation, Laurie is one of the first people to pick up the phone and speak with her legislators; when we need help growing our association, she’s one of the first to reach out to industry on our behalf. We are a stronger association because Lipsey’s is involved.”
ABOUT THE AMERICAN SUPPRESSOR ASSOCIATION
The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.
The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, 3 states have legalized suppressor ownership and 18 states have legalized suppressor hunting. Much of this would not have happened without your support. For more information on how you can join us in the fight to help protect and expand your right to own and use suppressors, visit www.AmericanSuppressorAssociation.com.
