Illinois: Suppressor Legalization Bill could be Considered at Any Time

Senate Bill 206, legislation which would legalize the possession and use of suppressors in Illinois is pending consideration in the Senate this week.  This important pro-gun bill could be brought up at any time, and your state Senator needs to hear from you now.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator TODAY and politely urge them to support Senate Bill 206 when it comes up for a vote.

Suppressors provide numerous benefits to the hunters and sportsmen who choose to use them.  Most importantly, suppressors decrease muzzle report to hearing-safe levels and reduce shooters’ risk of hearing damage, which can occur when discharging a firearm without proper hearing protection.  Additionally, suppressors help increase accuracy by reducing felt recoil and shot “flinch.”  Beginners to shooting sports adhere to a quicker learning curve on average because the muffled sound equates to increased focus and concentration on proper shooting mechanics.  Furthermore, suppressors help reduce noise complaints from neighbors, which are frequently used as an excuse to close hunting lands throughout the country.
