Virginia – ASA Will Fight For Your Suppressor Rights

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.

    Maybe if the NRA slushfund was used for actual lobbying then these companies would have the congressional influence they paid for.

      The NRA is a joke anymore…they select and choose what “they” want to fight for. They definitely all but abandoned us gun owners in California and the left coast.

        NRA abandoned CA back in ’89 when Roberti-Roos was passed. They’ve been working to overcome their short-sightedness as legal shark Chuck Michel has fought the good fight in a number of landmark cases. Nevertheless, the precedent had been set and we’ve been behind enemy lines every since.

    Considering that the VA GOP didn’t even run candidates for an embarrassingly large number of seats, the NRA could have carpet-bombed placards and money in VA to no avail.

    The bosses of the VA GOP should be lashed in a public square for their incompetence, and as a lesson for others.

      I’m in Fairfax County and I wrote in Donald J. Trump for State Senate and HOD. How the fuck can Virginia GOP just let Democrats run unopposed? They’re morons.

    I’m a little curious how Governor Black-Face got into office… I guess Dems only care about that stuff if you sway from the narrative.
