Congressional Committee Opens Investigation into ASA and Trump Admin

ASA Anti-Gun Witch Hunt

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Tuesday, July 28th, Rep. Stephen Lynch, Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security for the House Oversight and Reform Committee, launched an investigation on the Trump Administration and the American Suppressor Association (ASA) for the State Department's decision to legalize the commercial exportation of suppressors. This is nothing more than an anti-suppressor, anti-Trump partisan political witch hunt that seeks to prevent the creation of hundreds of American manufacturing jobs.

The previous prohibition, in place since 2002, unfairly limited the ability of American manufacturers to compete in global markets in allied nations where suppressors are already legal for commercial sale. The misguided prohibition was based on the common misconception that suppressors, also known as silencers, are capable of eliminating the noise of a gunshot. They are not. Even with suppressors, gunshots are very loud.

Citing national security, and ignoring the fact that dozens of foreign manufacturers already sell their products within these markets, the assertion that this pro-American manufacturing policy will put American troops at risk could not be further from the truth. Every suppressor that is exported will still require explicit approval by the State Department.

BECOME AN ASA MEMBER

The American Suppressor Association, the Trump Administration, and all parties involved followed all rules and regulations in pursuit of this pro-suppressor reform. Ultimately, the policy was changed because fact was finally able to overcome fiction.

The ability to compete in existing foreign markets will generate millions of dollars in annual revenue for small businesses across the country, increasing US exports, and creating hundreds of American jobs in the process.

Chairman Lynch and his anti-gun cohorts will stop at nothing to find ways to harass and hinder the ability of American firearm and suppressor manufacturers to conduct business. This is a glaring example of their fundamental unwillingness to set aside partisanship in pursuit of common-sense reform and the interests of our country.

We ask that you stand with the American Suppressor Association and the Trump Administration for fighting to create American jobs and protect the Second Amendment.
Contact your members of Congress and ask them to stop this anti-gun witch hunt!


About The American Suppressor Association

American Suppressor Association

The 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.

I wish that were true, but its not. Democrats, as a group, are NOT dumb. they are coldly calculating seditions destructive operatives, seeking to destroy life as we know it here in the US. Dumb people can’t come up with stuff like this.

Many used to accuse the kinyun of being “dumb”. He very definitely was NOT…….

Rep. Stephen Lynch – when a spot opened up for a congressman, there were several vying for the job. The Boston Globe, the most liberal democrat newspaper in the country ranked them. The Globe published “if there are six to be considered, then we choose Stephen Lynch as number 7. This after it was discovered that Lynch owned two expensive triple decker homes in the booming South Boston neighborhood. They queried how could he possibly afford them on his salary, but then discovered he had “forgotten” that he had about 70K in student loans. His response was that the demand… Read more »

What absolutely amazes me is the ABSOLUTE STUPIDITY of many of our elected officials. What gives me a great deal of concern and the feeling of uneasiness for our American Way Of Life is knowing, There are sufficient numbers of BRAINWASHED CITIZENS running loose in areas of our country that keep re-electing these SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS! I was raised up around guns, I have used guns in defense of this country, also as a Commissioned LEO, hunter & sport shootist. Having been closely associated with or around firearms for over 28,000 days, including wartimes, I have never seen a gun of… Read more »

In the name of gun control something like 275 million or more have been slaughtered over either a socialist agenda or communist agenda, and what did quid-pro-joe say a few weeks ago? That when he is made president it will be necessary to have several thousand killed to force the people to give up their guns, that story was scrubbed even the you tube video is gone.

John Lewis was a hate-filled Marxist and white-hater.
He wrote for several Marxist publications, spewed his white-hate often and opposed anything Republicans, the folks that FREED the slaves, said or did.
Every time a Republican was elected president, Lewis would go to the well and offer a bill to impeach him.
Lewis’s district was typical with crime and poverty rampant.
I thank God this evil monster is gone.

Generally speaking, the first time something happens and how it is handled afterward sets the pattern for what is supposed to happen “next time”. READ the account of the first time a man rose up and murdered another. What was the punishment, meted out to the perp, AND what was the policy going forward regarding the item used as the lethal tool? The muderer was banished. The tool? We don’t even know what that was, as it is totally irrelevant. Years later, another man having been disarmed of all conventional weapons, found it necessary to slay a large number of… Read more »
