While we don’t engage in partisan discussions here at TFB, keeping up with legislative, regulatory, and legal issues is important for the health of the firearms industry. In the past few months, several important legal and policy decisions have shaped the way gun ownership is categorized in the United States. In my opinion, one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented aspects of our industry is firearms categorized under the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934. This law, and subsequent additions, create barriers to ownership by implementing tax penalties, registration, and months of application wait times for firearms like suppressors and short barrel rifles. The American Suppressor Association is working to change public opinions on silencers and shape policy and legislation on NFA items. Follow the ASA on YouTube.

June was a big month for gun rights, both positive and negative. As you likely know, Congress passed the most comprehensive gun package in decades, and it’s safe to say there were precisely zero pro-gun provisions included.
On the Judicial side, the Supreme Court issued a landmark decision that could hugely impact suppressors. In light of the decision, ASA is actively looking into the implications of the ruling on the eight states that currently ban suppressors. ASA needs your help, now more than ever, to defend and expand your suppressor rights at the State and Federal levels.

When it comes to suppressor advocacy, knowledge is everything. As the unified voice of the suppressor community, our job is to bring that knowledge to legislators and regulators so they can make informed decisions.
Without hands-on education, the American Suppressor Association would not have been able to help legalize suppressor ownership in 3 states, and the use of suppressors while hunting in 19 states! That’s why the American Suppressor Association partners with the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses to educate attendees of the Annual NASC Sportsman – Legislator Summit about the realities of suppressors through lectures and hands-on demonstrations.
These demos have proven to be one of our most effective tools for dispelling the common myths and misconceptions that surround suppressors. Do your part to support our mission by joining the American Suppressor Association at www.ASAMember.com!
After a decade of fighting we finally made a HUGE breakthrough in Vermont! the suppressor hunting bill was officially signed into law in Vermont, making it legal to protect your hearing while hunting. Though this is a huge win, the fighting is far from over. If you want to help us continue our fight become a member at: www.asamember.com.
