About the ASA:

The American Suppressor Association is spearheading the fight to legalize and deregulate suppressors, and are the front line defense against the anti-suppressor factions that want them banned! Over the past eight years, ASA has actively lobbied in 30 states, fought to ease the archaic restrictions on suppressors in D.C., testified in front of dozens of legislative bodies, hosted countless suppressor demonstrations for legislators, media, and the public, and funded research proving the efficacy of suppressors. As a result of our work, Iowa, Minnesota, and Vermont legalized suppressor ownership, and 18 new states have legalized the use of suppressors while hunting, proposed ATF regulations on suppressor manufacturers were stopped, CLEO sign-offs were removed from all transfers, and transfer times are again beginning to drop.

Virginia – ASA Will Fight For Your Suppressor Rights

Monday, November 11th, 2019

On Tuesday, November 5th, Democrats took control of both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly. Following Governor Northam’s anti-gun special session in July, one thing is now abundantly clear:

With anti-gunners in control of all three branches of government, the right to own suppressors in Virginia is in jeopardy.

On July 8th, Delegate Mark Levine (D-45) introduced House Bill 4021, which seeks to ban and confiscate all 60,000+ lawfully obtained suppressors in Virginia. The American Suppressor Association was on hand in Richmond to oppose the bill during the special session and testified in opposition to the Virginia State Crime Commission on August 20th. Unfortunately, when the legislature reconvenes in January, we anticipate Delegate Levine’s misguided attempt to ban and confiscate these hearing safety devices to be among the anti-gun priorities that are quickly ushered through the legislature and signed into law.

“In my eight years fighting for suppressors, I’ve never faced a threat this serious,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of the American Suppressor Association. “The American Suppressor Association believes owning a suppressor is a right, not a privilege, and we will fight tooth and nail for that right. Plain and simple, suppressors are a tool that help protect hearing. They are not the nefarious devices that anti-gunners want you to believe they are. Banning them won’t make Virginia safer; in fact, it will make shooting more dangerous for the tens of thousands of law-abiding Virginians who use suppressors to protect themselves from preventable hearing damage.”

The American Suppressor Association is spearheading the fight to defend your right to own suppressors in Virginia. However, we will not win this attack on your Second Amendment rights alone. Our opposition is well organized and incredibly well funded. To counter their campaign, we need your help now more than ever.

We are calling on suppressor owners everywhere to make your voice heard by joining or making a donation to ASA today! Do so now through December 2nd, and you’ll be automatically entered to win one of 12 prizes worth more than $15,000. Your membership makes our voice stronger and provides the funding that allows us to stay active and engaged in this essential fight! Visit CansNotBans.com for details and to enter.

Colt Statement Regarding Cessation Of Commercial AR-15 Production

Company Response to Questions about Colt Participation in Consumer Markets

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (September 19th, 2019) – There have been numerous articles recently published about Colt’s participation in the commercial rifle market. Some of these articles have incorrectly stated or implied that Colt is not committed to the consumer market.  We want to assure you that Colt is committed to the Second Amendment, highly values its customers and continues to manufacture the world’s finest quality firearms for the consumer market. 

The fact of the matter is that over the last few years, the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity. Given this level of manufacturing capacity, we believe there is adequate supply for modern sporting rifles for the foreseeable future.  

On the other hand, our warfighters and law enforcement personnel continue to demand Colt rifles and we are fortunate enough to have been awarded significant military and law enforcement contracts.  Currently, these high-volume contracts are absorbing all of Colt’s manufacturing capacity for rifles.   Colt’s commitment to the consumer markets, however, is unwavering.  We continue to expand our network of dealers across the country and to supply them with expanding lines of the finest quality 1911s and revolvers.

At the end of the day, we believe it is good sense to follow consumer demand and to adjust as market dynamics change. Colt has been a stout supporter of the Second Amendment for over 180 years, remains so, and will continue to provide its customers with the finest quality firearms in the world.  

Very respectfully,

Dennis Veilleux, President and Chief Executive Officer

C3 Networks is Proud to Introduce 2AC3 – the Social Network for the Firearms Community

Monday, July 1st, 2019

2AC3 is an online haven free from the censorship that the firearms community faces on other social media platforms.

EC337BF9-8FA0-4BA1-8A09-3F3B593B59AF

Our Mission: To provide the firearms community with a place to connect, preserve pro Second Amendment culture and prevent the suppression of firearms content online.

Mainstream social media services have steadily worked to limit the posting and sharing firearms related content, with a clear end state of eliminating firearms content from their platforms altogether. 2AC3.com exists to prevent the firearms community from becoming isolated and disconnected, and serves as a hub for the exchange of news, information, and firearms content that can’t be shared on other sites.

2AC3 is a modern, fully featured social media platform that can be enjoyed across both desktop and mobile devices. New members can expect a familiar and easy to navigate interface where you can find and interact with firearms related content and like minded members of the community.

Manufacturers and retailers of firearms, ammunition, and accessories can freely list their products on 2AC3. In addition members can also post listings of their own firearms and accessories for sale or trade.* With the launch of the 2AC3 Marketplace in late summer 2019, it will be even easier to find firearms and accessories listed for sale on 2AC3.

2AC3 is experiencing rapid membership growth as the firearms community recognizes the need for their own dedicated social network. We encourage interested parties to visit us at 2AC3.com to learn more and become a member. Questions or comments can be sent to Contact@2AC3.com.

*Members, manufactures, and retailers are solely responsible for compliance with all laws and regulations that are applicable to any transactions that are facilitated through 2AC3.com.

Civilian Carry Radio Announces Tatiana Whitlock As New Co-Host For Podcast

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

Virginia – May 20, 2019, Civilian Carry Radio on the Firearms Radio Network, announced today that Tatiana Whitlock will join one of the fastest growing podcasts on firearms and the 2nd Amendment, effective May 29th, 2019. Civilian Carry Radio show broadcasts weekly on Wednesdays from 8pm to 9:30pm EST.

Tatiana will join the team led by the show’s founders Baraka Ulrich James and Allen Sams. The shows conversational and engaging approach of bridging the span between the everyday gun owner and firearms industry subject matter experts has led to its success and loyal viewership nationwide.

“I am honored to be invited to join Civilian Carry Radio as their new co-host! As a long time fan, and guest on the show believe in its mission that focuses on the importance of the 2nd amendment, firearms safety, education, training and mindset. Contributing to each episode is contributing to a legacy of knowledge and information from each guest we have join us!” Says Whitlock.

The show’s programming and content is also available across various platforms including F irearms Radio Network, iTunes, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Google Play Music, Stitcher, TuneIN, PodBean, On Speaker, Player FM, YouTube and more.

“After meeting Tatiana at SHOT Show in 2013, I watched her grow and progress in the gun and firearms community. I was so impressed with her work ethic and continuously hearing the positive feedback of people who trained with her. After having Tatiana appear as a guest on our show twice, I was overwhelmed by her knowledge, her teaching skills, her delivery and her way of disseminating complex information in a way that is easily digestible to the masses. With Allen and I being civilians (who did not serve in the military, not prior law enforcement) and with Tatiana having a similar background as us, but also putting in the same kind of time, effort, diligence and discipline to go out and learn on her own volition, I had to have her on our team! She is the perfect complement to round up and complete our show. We are honored that she accepted our invitation and look forward to the future with her now on board!”

Says show owner, producer and host Baraka James.
