Suppressors for Safety PSA (VIDEO)

    Did you know that civilians can own suppressors, also known as silencers, in 41 U.S. states? Thanks to the efforts of the American Suppressor Association and its industry partners over the past few years, we’ve seen more states adopt legislation legalizing civilian ownership of silencers. Suppressors for safety has been a core talking point.

    In this PSA sponsored by SureFire, I was invited to the SureFire Institute where I hosted a PSA with Mitchell McAlister (Australian Special Forces) and Jason Davis (Arcadia Police Department) to promote the civilian, military, and law enforcement use of suppressors as safety devices.

    If you’re interested in learning more about civilian suppressor ownership, check out the PSA below as well as the American Suppressor Association and its members.

    Here’s the full PSA video:
