Georgians have something to celebrate this year as their Governor, Nathan Deal, signed House Bill 60 (HB60) into law which legalized the use of suppressors for hunting in certain circumstances.
Daniel Defense invited Gov. Deal to their factory to thank him, and the Governor took time for pictures with Daniel Defense’s Integrally Suppressed Rifle (ISR). Good for Georgia, it’s really fantastic news.
Currently, 39 states allow civilians to own suppressors, and I hope we see the last 11 states follow suit. Suppressors increase safety for hunters and sport shooters.
Excerpt from the official Daniel Defense press release:
Black Creek, GA- October 21, 2014- Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing
the world’s finest firearms, precision rail systems and accessories, welcomed Georgia
Governor Nathan Deal to its Black Creek manufacturing facility.
Cindy Daniel, Executive Vice President of Daniel Defense, spoke with the Governor
before staff, and personally thanked him for his support of Georgia House Bill 60
(HB60), which allows for the use of sound suppressors for hunting under certain
circumstances. “We believe that we did put in place a piece of legislation that helps, of
course, with the suppressors that you manufacturer here,” said the Governor during his
speech, referring to the Integrally Suppressed Rifle (ISR) that Daniel Defense released in
2013. “Based on what hunters were telling us, especially those who were dealing with
some of the problems with feral hogs, that this was the appropriate thing for us to do.
