NEWINGTON, NH – The American Suppressor Association (ASA), the unified voice of the suppressor community, is pleased to announce that Sig Sauer is returning as a Tier 3 sponsor of ASA for 2020. Headquartered in Newington, New Hampshire, Sig Sauer is a leading manufacturer of suppressors, firearms, ammunition, optics, and electronics.
“Sig Sauer is always on the front line to help protect our 2nd Amendment rights for lawful ownership of firearms and all things related to productive and safe usage”, said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, Sig Sauer. “We feel that suppressors are not only our right, but are an integral part of making a firearm more productive and safe for professionals, every day defensive and recreational shooters, and hunters. We will continue to support pushing positive suppressor legislation forward as well as innovation to continually improve performance and safety for civilians and professionals.”
The American Suppressor Association began working with Sig Sauer in 2016, during New Hampshire’s fight to legalize the use of suppressors while hunting. The efforts proved successful, largely due to Sig’s involvement, when then Gov. Maggie Hassan signed House Bill 500 into law. Since 2019, Bobby Cox, Sig’s Vice President of Government Affairs has served as an active member of the ASA Board of Directors.
“Sig Sauer has proven to be a tremendously effective ally in our fight for pro-suppressor reform,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “At both the state and federal levels, Sig has always answered the call to help do the right thing when it comes to Second Amendment and suppressor related advocacy. As a leader in the industry, the insight, experience, and expertise that Sig brings to the table is second to none. The American Suppressor Association is proud to have Sig on our team!”
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.
