ASA Map Last week, Governor Mark Dayton signed Senate File 878 into law, making Minnesota the 40th state to legalize the private possession of silencers. Starting August 1st Minnesota will become the 36th state to allow for the use of silencers while hunting. We have several FFL’s in Minnesota that are currently accepting transfers of silencers. You can order your silencer now and start the process before the law takes effect. For more information you can call or email. Thank you to the American Suppressor Association and the NRA for helping to get this law passed.
