UPS Moves to Stop Shipping Suppressors

Earlier this week, Guns.com reported that UPS is moving to stop carrying shipments of firearms suppressors due to what they referred to as compliance issues:
“NSSF, in coordination with NRA and the American Suppressor Association, are in discussions with UPS to address their compliance concerns,” Lawrence Keane, National Shooting Sports Foundation senior vice president and general counsel told Guns.com. “Vermont and Minnesota will likely soon join 39 other states that allow the possession of suppressors. In light of this, we hope to be able to have UPS reconsider its policy.”

Keane advised caution in allowing the industry to do its work, saying, “We strongly urge all Second Amendment advocates not to jump to conclusions about UPS.”
It appears to be a policy that was on UPS' books for years, but they just decided to enforce it.

Cam Edwards spoke with Knox Williams, president and executive director of the American Suppressor Association during Monday's Sportsman Channel's Cam and Company program.

This happens at a time when suppressor legalization legislation is increasing.
