UPS Will Not Ship Suppressors

On a daily basis, United Parcel Service (UPS) delivers over 15 million packages to 6.1 million customers in more than 220 countries and territories around the world. It now appears that those packages will no longer include firearm suppressors. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), UPS recently made the decision to stop shipping suppressors, even between licensees. As of yet, UPS has not given a reason for its abrupt change in policy.

“NSSF is working with UPS executives to determine what prompted the enforcement of this unwarranted policy. We are unaware of any thefts or losses that would explain the shipping company’s sudden decision to enforce a prohibition against shipment,” stated the NSSF in a press release.

UPS has not yet made an official announcement regarding the policy change, but appears to have modified the section of its website that describes its firearms policy to reflect that firearm “mufflers” and silencers will no longer be shipped by the company.
