idiom, Definition of silence is golden
Used to say that it is often better to remain silent shoot suppressed than to speak shoot an unsuppressed gun and permanently damage your hearing
Silencer. Suppressor. Muffler. Moderator. Can. All words to describe the same thing – one of the most misunderstood tools in existence. The American Suppressor Association (ASA), chooses to call them suppressors because it’s the most accurate description of what they actually do. Feel free to call them whatever you want, but know this: the only difference between a silencer and a suppressor is word choice.
Help ASA breakdown the myths and misconceptions that surround suppressors by buying a raffle ticket (or a hundred) between February 15th and March 4th. Every ticket purchased helps ensure a quieter America for generations to come. And hey, you could win one of five incredible prizes in the process (all tax stamps included)!
Contest ends Thursday, March 4, 2021, at 11:59pm EST. Winners will be announced Friday, March 5, 2021, at 5:00pm EST
How To Enter
ASA Silence is Golden Raffle Entries
As the nation’s most trusted experts on suppressor advocacy, ASA will always fight for your suppressor rights! Our campaign promises haven’t changed since 2011 – the year that we formed. Our promises are as follows:
ASA will combat any attempt to ban, confiscate, or further regulate suppressors
In 2019 and 2020, ASA successfully fought to protect suppressor ownership in Virginia. We will be back in Richmond in 2021.
At the Federal level, ASA has lobbied against multiple bills that seek to ban, confiscate, or further regulate suppressors. Remember CLEO Signoffs? Our work helped eliminate the CLEO signoff requirement entirely.
ASA will fight to remove suppressors from the National Firearms Act
The National Firearms Act is an unjustified tax that never should have existed. Nonetheless, it does. The American Suppressor Association will continue to lead the charge to remove suppressors from the NFA, dismantling the law piece by piece until it no longer remains.
ASA will work to
Decrease Wait Times
Transfers should take minutes, not months. ASA will continue to work directly with the White House, Members of Congress, and ATF until wait times are a thing of the past!
ASA will Legalize Suppressor Ownership and Hunting in all 50 states
Since our formation in 2011, ASA has helped 3 states legalize suppressor ownership and 18 states legalize suppressor hunting. We will not stop until we are successful in all 50 states!
