Suppressor Legislation Signed In New Hampshire

posted on June 13, 2016

On Saturday, New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a measure into law that repeals the current ban on the use of legal firearm sound suppressors while hunting.

The measure, House Bill 500, was sponsored by state Rep. John Burt.

Suppressors provide numerous benefits to the hunters and sportsmen who choose to use them. Most importantly, suppressors decrease muzzle report to hearing-safe levels and reduce shooters’ risk of hearing damage, which can occur when discharging a firearm without the proper hearing protection. Additionally, suppressors help increase accuracy by reducing felt recoil and shot “flinch.” Furthermore, suppressors help reduce noise complaints from neighbors, which are frequently used as an excuse to close hunting lands throughout the country.
