Illinois: Suppressor Legalization Bill Reintroduced as Senate Bill 50 for 2017

Today, the Illinois General Assembly convened for its 2017 Legislative Session.  Following where it left off in 2016, legislation that would legalize the possession and use of suppressors in Illinois was introduced today as Senate Bill 50.  Sponsored by state Senator William Haine, Senate Bill 50 continues the fight for important pro-gun safety reform for hearing protection rights.  It is important that you contact your state Senator immediately and urge them to support SB 50.


Suppressors provide numerous benefits to the hunters and sportsmen who choose to use them.  Most importantly, suppressors can 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

Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and urge them to support Senate Bill 50 when it comes up for a vote.
