Tennessee Removes State Suppressor Regulations

posted on May 13, 2017

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has signed a measure into law that will decriminalize the manufacture and possession of firearm suppressors in the Volunteer State. The “Tennessee Hearing Protection Act” passed in the House 74-18, and the Senate approved it by a 28-1 vote.

The measure, introduced by Republican state Sen. Steve Southerland, repeals current Tennessee statutes prohibiting the possession, manufacture, transport, repair or sale of firearm silencers, commonly referred to as “suppressors” by firearm owners.

The new law will take effect July 1. Current federal regulations pertaining to suppressors remain in place.
