Virginia: Suppressor Ban Nearing Critical Deadline

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


RICHMOND, VA – Delegate Mark Levine’s House Bill 961 is likely to be heard at the House Public Safety Committee Hearing on Friday, February 7th at 8:00 AM. The hearing, which will take place in House Room 1 of the General Assembly Building, is the last chance for legislation to pass out of the committee prior to the crossover deadline on Tuesday, February 11th.

House Bill 961 seeks to ban the sale of suppressors, standard capacity magazines, and “assault firearms” in Virginia. If enacted as currently drafted, Virginians in lawful possession of suppressors would be required to destroy them, transfer them out of state, or surrender them to state or local law enforcement by January 1st, 2021. Any civilian caught importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, or transporting a suppressor after that date would be charged with a Class 6 felony.

The American Suppressor Association needs your help to ensure that this bill fails!

If you live in Virginia, please join us at the committee hearing to voice your opposition to HB 961. Additionally, please use our form below to email the members of the House Public Safety Committee to let them know that you oppose any ban and confiscation of suppressors and “assault firearms”. Lastly, please call the committee members to voice your opposition on the phone. It may not seem like much, but every email and call counts!

About the American Suppressor Association

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide. Suppressor owners everywhere are being rallied to make their voices heard by joining ASA or buying a raffle ticket during the “Cans Not Bans: Sic Semper Tinnitus” member giveaway. Proceeds support the ASA’s organized opposition to Governor Northam’s unpopular attempt to ban suppressors in the state. Anyone who does so before March 2nd will be entered to win one of 11 prizes. Already an ASA member? As long as your membership is up to date as of March 2nd, you’ll be entered as well!

Membership in the American Suppressor Association amplifies everyone’s voices and provides the necessary funding to stay engaged in this essential fight in Virginia, Washington D.C., and throughout the country. Make no mistake, this fight is about more than just Virginia. If we allow misguided policy to take hold in The Old Dominion, it will spread like wildfire. The American Suppressor Association will do everything in our power to prevent this unacceptable outcome. Visit for more details.
