Take Action: Sign Petition to Remove Suppressors from NFA

petition_suppressor_NFA_sig_sauer_silencer_1Those of us who support improvements in suppressor legislation have an opportunity to take action.

A new petition posted on Whitehouse.gov aims to remove suppressors from the list of items regulated by the 1934 National Firearms Act (NFA). The petition requests suppressors be taken off the list of NFA regulated items, remove the costly $200 tax stamp on any purchase of a suppressor, eliminate the complex legality and travel issues between states and reduce safety concerns related to discharging firearms.

The petitioners have a goal of 100,000 signatures by Aug. 5, 2014. Although reaching this goal wouldn't guarantee changes in current legislation, it would require the White House Administration to review the petition and issue an official response.

For more information about suppressors and legislation updates, check out the American Suppressor Association.


Help support suppressor awareness! Visit the Whitehouse.gov website to view or sign the petition.
