Senator Lee had this to say about his legislation:

Suppressors can make shooting safer for the millions of hunters and sportsmen that exercise their constitutional right to use firearms every year.

The current process for obtaining a suppressor is far too expensive and burdensome. Our bill would remove these unnecessary federal regulations and make it easier for firearms users to protect themselves. — Mike Lee

In order to petition for a suppressor, an applicant must turn in two copies of ATF Form 4, and TF Form 5330.20, which must be authorized by a chief law enforcement officer where the applicant resides.

Senator Lee’s bill would eliminate the current process which also is accompanied by a $200 tax individuals must pay and a 6-12 month wait for authorization.

There are currently 5 cosponsors on the bill, all Republicans:
