Illinois Suppressor Legislation Needs Your Support This Week

posted on January 10, 2017

Illinois Senate Bill 206, which would legalize the possession and use of firearm suppressors, is currently pending consideration this week. This bill needs your support today. 

Firearm suppressors, which are widely used in Europe and currently legal to own in 38 states, offer important benefits. Although they neither “silence” firearms nor see common use among criminals—as movies and the media inaccurately portray—suppressors can reduce muzzle blast to hearing-safe levels, thereby protecting the hearing of hunters and reducing the noise complaints that are often used to try to shut down shooting ranges and hunting lands. In addition, by reducing felt recoil, suppressors can help increase accuracy, reduce “flinch” and make shooting more accessible to beginners, young people and even some milquetoast journalists.
