ANKENY, IA – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is thrilled to announce that the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW), the association representing shooting sports wholesalers, manufacturers, and their trade partners, is renewing their Tier 3 sponsorship of the American Suppressor Association.

“It’s an honor for NASGW to support the American Suppressor Association’s mission,” said Kenyon Gleason, President of NASGW. “They’ve been very successful in getting suppressors legalized for multiple purposes in states across the US and we know our support will help continue their efforts.”

The American Suppressor Association began working alongside NASGW in late 2017. Shortly thereafter, Kenyon Gleason joined the ASA Board of Directors, lending his leadership and expertise to our Association.

“Since 2017, NASGW has become an integral component of our pro-suppressor coalition,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “Our association and our ability to advocate are measurably stronger because of the support from Kenyon and his top-notch team.”


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.
