WhiteHouse.gov Petition Shoots To Remove Suppressors From National Firearms Act Regulation

There is an effort afoot to have the legislation changed to make it easier to purchase a suppressor.

As would be expected with suppressors, their popularity has silently crept up in the shooting world.

Presently, the gun accessory is legal to own in all but a handful of states. And, much to the joy of hog hunters, the noise-reducing device has been OK’d in many area’s for taking game.

Even with the growing acceptance of suppressors, there remains one major hurdle in the device becoming more commonplace – the National Firearms Act. The 1934 legislation regulates the ownership of the suppressors; in turn there are plenty of hoops to jump through to obtain one.

Perhaps, the most onerous aspect of being a NFA regulated accessory is the $200 tax stamp that must be paid to purchase a suppressor. This effectively more than doubles the price of most suppressors.
