Illinois Senate Committee Will Consider Suppressor Measure Wednesday

posted on January 24, 2017

A bill that would lift the ban on suppressors in Illinois is scheduled to be heard by a Senate committee tomorrow. Senate Bill 50, sponsored by state Sen. William Haine, would legalize suppressors and their use while hunting.

Suppressors provide numerous benefits to hunters and sportsmen and women, chief among them reducing the risk of hearing damage. They can also increase accuracy by reducing felt recoil and shot “flinch.” Additionally, suppressors can help reduce noise complaints from surrounding neighbors, who oftentimes use the loud sounds as an excuse to close hunting lands across the nation. 

If passed, Illinois would join the 42 states that currently allow gun owners to have suppressors, and the 40 states that allow suppressors when hunting.
