The NFAFA is the strongest direct action/lobbying organization working at the state and federal level to ease restrictions on the ownership, manufacture, sale, and use of items regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA).


Goals

  • Work to repeal and replace “DTP” with statutes that affirmatively protect ownership of NFA weapons.
  • Identify states that do not allow hunting with suppressors and enact legislation to allow such activities.
  • Remove state-level prohibitions against the possession of NFA items.
