South Carolina’s Attorney General Defends Suppressors, Second Amendment

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson defended suppressor ownership as a Second Amendment right, and it was the reason he joined a recent attempt to have a Kansas suppressor case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. Wilson warned that if accessories for firearms such as suppressors aren’t protected by the Second Amendment, an activist court in the future could rule that the same applies  to ammunition ownership. NSSF supports the Hearing Protection Act, which would remove suppressor regulations under the 1968 Gun Control Act and make them available for purchase with a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) approval the same way firearms are sold at retail.
