MONTPELIER, VT – On June 6, 2024, Governor Phil Scott (R-VT) signed H. 878 into law, removing the two-year sunset provision from S. 281 that temporarily legalized the use of suppressors while hunting in Vermont. With the enactment of the new law, hunters in The Green Mountain State no longer have to worry about losing their right to protect their hearing in the field.

The ASA-backed pro-suppressor provision of the omnibus bill was championed by none other than Rep. Pat Brennan (R-Chittenden-9-2). For more than a decade, Representative Brennan has been a staunch supporter of the rights of oppressors. Not only did he, along with Rep. George Till (D-Chittenden-3), lead the charge to allow hunters to use suppressors in 2022, he was also instrumental in legalizing suppressor ownership in Vermont in 2015 .

“Working with Representative Brennan over the past twelve years has truly been one of the greatest privileges and honors of my career,” said Knox Williams, Executive Director of the American Suppressor Association.

“His tireless work and unwavering dedication are why law-abiding citizens in The Green Mountain State no longer have to choose between endangering their hearing and exercising their Second Amendment rights. What he has been able to achieve is nothing short of extraordinary. The oppressor community, as well as the people of Vermont, will forever be in his debt.”
