Like the NFA petition on SBRs before it, there is now one for suppressors (silencers).

You can see the petition here. Or at whitehouse.gov. The petition reads as follows:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Remove suppressors as an NFA regulated item.

Removal of suppressors as an NFA regulated item would eliminate the $200 tax stamp, eliminate legality and travel issues between states, reduce hearing safety concerns related to discharging firearms, and would help people be courteous neighbors when discharging firearms.

As of this writing, the petition has 17,943 signatures. We need 82,057 more by August 5, 2014. Please consider signing it. As I’ve mentioned with the SBR petition, I do not expect a repeal of the NFA all together. But, there is a chance to at least make our voices heard on repealing parts of it. Specifically, short barrelled rifles and shotguns as well as suppressors.
