Oh, please-please-please let this actually be what it sounds like:
According to the National Firearms Act Trade & Collectors Association, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) are preparing to remove the often burdensome Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) signature requirement from Form 1 and Form 4 for NFA firearms.
Does this actually mean we can now obtain suppressors and SBRs without having the local sheriff’s/police chief’s sign-off requirement blocking us? No more agonizing on whether an NFA trust will actually shelter you if the local DA decides to try to make a name for himself?
I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one, and that 300 BLK barrel I have coming for “Gretchen” might just need to be reconfigured…
