Suppressor NFA removal petition

There is a petition at to have suppressors removed from the NFA restriction list. This would allow the purchase of suppressors by anyone 21 or older with no felony convictions and that undergoes a background check. If the NFA restriction was removed this would bring the US in line with most other countries where firearms are legal for civilian use. In many other countries the suppressor is actually sold with the firearm as an included attachment because it is considered polite to shoot with a suppressor.

The petition has a long way to go if it were to actually get a response from the White House (not that it would be a positive one anyway) but it might be a good first step.
