American Silencer Association

USA - -(Ammoland.com)- The American Silencer Association has been working with the NRA this session to legalize suppressor hunting for all game animals in Louisiana.

There are currently two bills, with equal language, which seek to accomplish this goal.

House Bill 186, which was introduced by Rep. Cameron Henry, (R-82), passed the House by an 82-15 margin on April 2 2014. It is currently awaiting final passage by the Senate, which is expected to occur today.

Senate Bill 212, which was introduced by Sen. Rick Ward, III (R-17), passed the Senate on March 26 with a unanimous 35-0 vote. At the same time, 22 Senators signed on to co-author the bill. On April 29, SB 212 passed the House Committee on Natural Resources and Environment unanimously, and is currently awaiting a vote on the House Floor.

There are currently 32 states which allow hunters to use legally possessed suppressors in the field. On July 1, Georgia will become the 33rd. Of the 33 states, only Louisiana and Montana restrict their use to non-game animals. For a full map, visit the ASA’s website.

Please contact members of the Senate TODAY and urge them to support the passage of HB 186. In addition, please also contact members of the House and urge them to support SB 212.

About the American Silencer Association
The American Silencer Association (ASA) is a non-profit trade association, whose mission is to educate legislators, regulators, and members of the public on the legitimate uses of suppressors, and to pursue legislative and regulatory reform in jurisdictions where their possession and use is unduly restricted.

The ASA is a sponsorship and membership driven organization, whose ability to lobby is directly tied to donated funds. For more information on how you can help protect and expand your right to own and use suppressors, please visit www.AmericanSilencerAssociation.com.
