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

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.

Here is the link to the petition....

Spread the word EVERYWHERE..  it's a long shot, but it will bring up the subject in the news for the administration to comment on.

Signed both. The second one is good for all of us kit builders who think the $200 SBR tax is a joke.

"Thanks for your interest in We the People, a new tool on WhiteHouse.gov that allows all Americans to ask the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country.

The petition you are trying to access has expired, because it failed to meet the signature threshold."

Wonder what the "signature Threashold" is for a petition they don't like?
