AUSTIN, TX – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is thrilled to announce that Silencer Shop, the largest suppressor distributor in the United States, is increasing their sponsorship of the American Suppressor Association to ASA’s Tier 1 level for 2019 and 2020. The increased commitment makes Silencer Shop the Association’s top sponsor.

“Silencer Shop is excited to build upon our relationship with the ASA.  It is more important than ever that we take action to keep our rights intact.  We are proud supporters of the ASA.,” said Dave Matheny, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Silencer Shop.

Suppressor rights are currently under attack at both the state and federal levels. Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) wants to ban and confiscate every lawfully obtained suppressor in Virginia. At the federal level, Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Representative Bonnie Coleman (D-NJ-12) have introduced legislation to do the same, and Representative Jennifer Wexton (D-VA-10) is trying to give Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEOs) 90 days to assert uninhibited veto power over NFA applications.

“Silencer Shop is leading by example, showing suppressor owners everywhere that they will fight to protect the right to own suppressors,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “For years, Silencer Shop has been one of the most active organizations in the pro-suppressor arena. Their jump to our Tier 1 level will help provide ASA the funding that we need, now more than ever, to defend our rights against the onslaught of anti-suppressor legislation. With Silencer Shop beside us at the vanguard, we will do everything in our power to protect and defend suppressors.”


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.
