RICHMOND, VA: Delegate Mark Levine’s House Bill 961 is on the docket to be heard at the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Monday, February 17th at 8:00 AM. The American Suppressor Association will be on hand to testify in opposition to the bill. The hearing will take place in Senate Room A of the General Assembly Building.

Should HB 961 become law, anyone who possesses a federally registered suppressor in Virginia prior to July 1st would be able to legally maintain possession of their property. However, the acts of importing, selling, manufacturing, and purchasing suppressors would be prohibited for civilians after enactment. For this reason, among others, HB 961 remains a bill that the American Suppressor Association strongly opposes.

If you live in Virginia, please use our form below to email the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to let them know that you oppose HB 961 as well as any ban and confiscation of suppressors and “assault firearms”. Lastly, please call the committee members to voice your opposition on the phone. It may not seem like much, but every email and call counts!
