Petition to repeal the Hughes amendment ( gun rights stuff)

https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/!/petition/push-congress-repeal-hughes-amendment-fopa-and-nfa/FWXhjh9s

Quote:
we petition the obama administration to:

Push Congress to repeal the Hughes amendment to the FOPA and NFA

The Hughes amendment to the Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA) closed the machine gun registry in 1986. The problem is that there is now video available of the vote to add the Hughes amendment that clearly shows that the motion to add it failed in committee. However it was sent to the Senate with that amendment attached anyway after the house approved the FOPA without the Hughes amendment. Once passed in the Senate, President Regan signed it into law.
By all rights the Hughes amendment should never have been included and signed into law, yet it now on the books. Please press Congress to repeal the Hughes amendment, especially since it was never passed legally to begin with.
click the link above to sign the petition before the 29th of this month. they need 5000 signatures by then.

The Hughes amendment to the Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA) closed the machine gun registry in 1986.

Excuse me for being ignorant but closing the machine gun registry means what to me? Google is not giving me much to go on here

"We the undersigned urge the Congress of the United States to re-open the machine gun registry by repealing the Hughes Amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968.

1. Machine gun ownership is legal, but they must be registered.
2. On May 19, 1986, the machine gun registry was closed. No new civilian registrations have been accepted since that date, and the supply of legally transferable machine guns is steadily declining, causing a huge increase in the cost of machine guns transferable to civilians.
3. Since 1934, there has been only ONE homicide committed with a machine gun legally owned by a civilian.
4. Criminals own machine guns illegally, but law-abiding civilians are severely restricted in their ability to own them.
5. This restriction is in violation of the Second Amendment.

For the foregoing reasons, law-abiding citizens of the United States must be allowed to buy machine guns manufactured after May 19, 1986."

So your pissed cuz wally world wont sell cubical dwelling Bob a Kalashnikov why would anyone want the average citizen to own such a thing, people are complete idiots if they cant figure out how to obtain a pre ban auto than I don't think they have the comprehension needed to understand what a full auto is capable of

Any merc will tell you point blank full autos are for suppression only killing is done up close n personal shot gun is the preferred weapon, full auto is for bravado wastes more ammo than anything else makes way to much noise and will get you killed by a pro cuz your to busy wasting rounds to notice you just got flanked

Please proof read your posts before clicking submit.

God knows I say dumb shit from time to time(sometimes quite often), but at least my posts don't come across as jumbled, unintelligible thoughts thrown together like shit on a wall from a retarded monkey on crank.

You've made some good points, but when I read them I get more confused than when I get a hard on looking at pictures of Scooter in drag.

I really don't want my neighbor to have a machine gun. What would be the point. If you cant hit what you are aiming at with a 45 in one, or two shots, I sure as flock dont want you popping off a fully automatic assault rifle. This is pointless at best.
