*** News/Call To Action - Illinois ***

The continuing push to legalize suppressors in Illinois: An interview with Knox Williams of the American Suppressor Association, where he urges gun owners to contact their state senators and ask them to support the legislation (Senate Bill 206). The bill has passed the state house and is waiting on a vote in the senate. The Governor has said he will sign it, if passed.

You can use the NRA's "Take Action" Tool to contact your state senator and urge them to support the bill.

ASA - Illinois Suppressor Legislation Passes Committee Vote

SPRINGFIELD, IL - Senate Bill 206 has been passed in the Judiciary Committee in a 7-5 vote. It now heads to the full Senate for a floor vote. The Judiciary Hearing was placed on the calendar at 2:11pm, to be held at 4:00pm. ASA staff rushed to Springfield to continue to work the bill and gather support. ASA urges our supporters that live in Illinois to contact their senators and respectfully request them to support and vote YES on the bill. This is happening very quickly and we will provide updates through our social media channels as information becomes available.

I did a progress post a few months back. It inspired me to go back a bit further in time and research what the lay of the land was a few months before I started making these maps.

In the period between March 1, 2012 and June 10, 2016,

14 states legalized the use of suppressors while hunting (Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Wyoming)

3 states, which allowed limited hunting of non-game animals with suppressors, legalized suppressed hunting of all animals (Florida, Louisiana, Montana)

3 states legalized the possession of suppressors (Iowa, Minnesota, Vermont).

A total of 18 states liberalized their suppressor laws within a 4 year, 3 month period.

Of the 10 states left to work on, most are in the North-East. With the full or partial victories in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, I think there's a good chance that a few more can be flipped, if not all of them.

*** Call To Action - Illinois ***

From the American Suppressor Association:

Alright folks in Illinois. It's time to get on the phone and email and contact your Senators and encourage them to bring SB206 to a vote and ask them to vote YES. Let's make Illinois the 43rd state to legalize suppressors! Please share this with your fellow gun owners in Illinois.

ASA - Illinois: Suppressor Bill Needs Your Help

For several years, the American Suppressor Association has worked alongside the National Rifle Association and members of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses on legislation to legalize the ownership and use of suppressors in the state of Illinois. Although the legislation was unable to pass in 2016, it has been reintroduced by state Senator William Haine as Senate Bill 50.

S.B. 50, which seeks to legalize suppressor ownership and use while hunting in Illinois, has been scheduled for a committee hearing on Wendesday, January 25th at 9:00 AM. If passed, it will bring Illinois in line with the 42 states that currently allow civilians to own suppressors, and the 40 states that allow hunters to use them in the field.

If you live in Illinois, it is important that you contact your state Senator and politely urge them to support SB 50. You can contact your state Senator by clicking the NRA-ILA’s link below:

NRA-ILA Tool

Also, please follow these steps to fill out a witness slip in support of S.B. 50:

  1. Go to the ILGA Dashboard at my.ilga.gov
  2. On the left, click “Senate” > “Committee Hearings”
  3. Under “Scheduled Senate Committee Hearings” click “Week”
  4. On the right, click the “View Hearing Details” tab for Criminal Law
  5. On the right, click the “Create Witness Slip” tab for S.B. 50
  6. Fill out the information. In Section III, check “Proponent”, and in Section IV, check “Record of Appearance Only”
