On July 1st, pro-suppressor legislation in both Kansas and Georgia went into effect.
In Georgia, House Bill 60, the most comprehensive gun bill ever to pass in the state of Georgia, included a provision which allows the use of silencers while hunting. HB60 taking effect brings the number of states that allow game hunters to use silencers to 32!
In Kansas, House Bill 2578 took effect which includes a “shall sign” provision which would require a Chief Law Enforcement Officer to sign individual form 4 applications for silencers within 15 days unless the individual applicant is found to be a prohibited person.
These bills, and others currently in the works in other states, are a product of the people’s participation in our legislative and democratic processes. By contacting your local, state, and federal representatives, as well as your participation in grass-roots organizations like the National Rifle Association and the American Suppressor Association, you have taken a stand for our 2nd Amendment rights and made a real and lasting impact in the fight against those who would infringe on those rights.
To all who have participated in the process and all of you who are currently in the fight, we thank you and congratulate you on these and other well-earned victories!
