U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- On Tuesday, November 5th, Democratic legislators 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.

ABOUT THE AMERICAN SUPPRESSOR ASSOCIATION 

American Suppressor AssociationThe American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.

The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, 3 states have legalized suppressor ownership and 18 states have legalized suppressor hunting. Much of this would not have happened without your support. For more information on how you can join us in the fight to help protect and expand your right to own and use suppressors, visit www.AmericanSuppressorAssociation.com.

While I don’t personally have any use or need for a suppressor, I do have the need for the right to own one if I so desire. Every time a new law is enacted against guns, gun accessories, ammo, etc., a new provision in favor of the criminal is created. Every anti-gun law favors the criminal because it makes his profession safer for him.

BE PREPARED!

If suppressor owners are serious about protecting their rights, then they shouldn’t be in it for a “prize,” but instead donate that money right back to the cause they fight for. Every time I donate to a cause that I believe in, and they offer this or that as a lure, I tell them to keep this or that or I won’t donate. Just did the same thing with OathKeepers when it came to my $50.00 parking fee there in Minnesota during the Trump rally, and the $41.00 of gas it took me to get there and back. Don’t let… Read more »

Maybe someone would like to support & can’t afford the prize ? So if they wanted a suppressor & won they shouldn’t accept it ? Even though they supported the cause. don’t see it as selling out just a BONUS. I doubt it is a deciding factor in supporting the cause.

These anti-gun people have been protected by guns all their lives. Now they want to pass that “protection” job over to the criminal element because they think they will do a better job.
I wish they had suppressors on mortar rounds in the late 60’s, I would still have my hearing if they did.

If only you could get the citizens of VA to fight for their rights. With 100+ million gun owners in the nation, there shouldn’t be anything that can’t be accomplished for gun rights. It’s a matter of getting them out to the polls.
