Silencer Shop is the premier advocate for pro-suppressor reform. They recently partnered with the ASA-Foundation, committing $350,000 to fund a first-of-its-kind lawsuit challenging Illinois’ unconstitutional state ban on suppressor ownership. The case, Anderson v. Raoul, which was filed on February 27th, 2023, aims to overturn Illinois’ suppressor ban, allowing citizens to purchase and own suppressors for all lawful purposes.

“Silencer Shop spends more money on pro-suppressor advocacy than any other company, and it’s not even close,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA.  “Not only are they ASA’s longest standing Tier One Sponsor, they have also committed more towards the ASA Foundation’s litigation projects than any other organization.  Silencer Shop’s commitment to a safer and quieter future is truly second to none.”
