A map of the current state of suppressors throughout the U.S.

Removing suppressors from the National Firearms Act has been the American Suppressor Association’s goal since its inception. Now, more than any previous time, that goal could become a reality.
Currently, as shooters are aware, the federal transfer process and all its paperwork creates mayhem for potential suppressor owners. There’s also the $200 transfer tax on purchased suppressors. All that hassle is closer than ever to being erased.
From the American Suppressor Association:
In July, 2017, the Hearing Protection Act was added, along with a package of technical amendments developed by the American Suppressor Association, to the Sportsmen’s Heritage And Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act (H.R.3668). This strengthened version of the Hearing Protection Act, as Section XV of the SHARE Act, was heard in the House Natural Resources Committee on Sept. 12, 2017. The next day it was passed out of committee in a 22-13 vote, and was scheduled to be voted on by the House in a full floor vote.
“As we fight for our right to shoot quietly, we need your help to make sure our voice is heard loud and clear on Capitol Hill,” the American Suppressor Association says. “Please take the time to fill out the form below so that you can send an email to your Representatives and Senators to let them know that you support the Hearing Protection Act as well as its inclusion into the SHARE Act.”
