BOSTON, MA – On Wednesday, August 28th at 10:00 AM in Room A-2, the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security will hear a bill which seeks to legalize suppressor ownership in Massachusetts. S. 1417 would replace the current law that prohibits the possession of suppressors by non-manufacturers with language that allows private individuals to own and possess suppressors so long as they are not (1) prohibited persons; (2) committing a violent felony; (3) committing a crime of violence against a family member; or (4) possessing or selling controlled substances.
The American Suppressor Association has submitted written testimony, but we need your help! If you are a Massachusetts resident, please attend the hearing to show your support.
