    The Hughes Amendment petition is doing terribly. I guess those who want the NFA gone still don't want to be able to buy post-1986 MG receivers.

    Maybe enough people aren't paying attention or there's way too many people wearing tinfoil under their winter caps ;)

    They aren't completely useless, because they can get the issue on Whitehouse radar. We have an administration that might be open to this if the house or senate provides them a bill to sign.

    Don't forget to respond to the emails. I bet a lot of people 'sign them' but never click the email link so their vote never counts..

    Looks like it made the 100,000. The hughes amendment one is still only at 16000. I guess no one wants a machine gun :)

    If the NFA was repealed in it's entirety, than yes. I think that will never happen. Ever. I'd love to see SBRs/SBSs wiped from the NFA, however. This is the easiest to logically justify, since every shotgun or rifle is 5 minutes and a hacksaw away from being an SBR/SBS.
