Call it a rumor of wht they might do or someones suggestion but no, the LEO signoff requirement has NOT been suspended and probably won't be until the ATF gets a director . Given the current gun control climate I seriously doubt they will suspend the LEO signoff requirement for NFA transfers. The trust route is the result of an unintended loophole that wasnt even recognized until 15 years ago or so. The NFA would have to get overhauled with a law to change that and as much as it sounds like gun control legislation is right around the corner I don't believe it is. The current House will stop ANY gun control measure dead in its tracks and support in the Senate is lukewarm at best. They all just want the debate to die. 1994 was a lesson in what happens to legislators who vote for hard gun control measures. They dont want to repeat that. Did you hear in the state of the Union speech where the President was practically begging for a vote on the floor for Gun Control measures. That was because even he knew it was a doomed set of bills.
