I doubt on a forum like this there would be many people who would sign something like this but I thought I'd give it a shot (pun kinda intended). These petitions are asking to repeal the NFA and the Hughes amendment. The NFA is a list of firearms that are restricted. Things like suppressors (silencers), automatic weapons, short barreled rifles and shotguns, etc. Repealing the NFA would make these items as available as a hunting rifle or pistol provided that you pass a background check. The Hughes amendment bans any automatic weapon made after 1986 altogether. While the few gun rights advocates sign these petitions I'd like to hear why these laws should remain on the books. No one has yet gave a good answer when I asked elsewhere. Here are the petitions.

What a stupid idea! We need more, not less, such restrictions.

Why does anyone need an automatic weapon?

To shoot more animals, fight the gub'mnt, and kill more school kids when they get pissed.

a good reason to ban these weapons is because of all the refugees that some people are trying to get into the country

Why does anyone need an automatic weapon?

For the same reason why some people need a Lamborghini. It isn't about need its about the freedom to choose what I want.

You obviously have a vendetta against law abiding gun owners.

Are you in favor of bombs being legal too? Ive never been able to understand where and why people draw the line, but clearly there is a line and most people are fine with it, no one is marching for the right to own bombs, grenades, etc.

Automatic weapons can inflict a lot of damage in a short amount of time, personally i would draw the line there.
