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.
LOL...you not very bright.
Why you say it isn't about practicality of purpose; hunting, but rather because "you want it" and yet you cite making these weapon types and modifications available for hunting use?
Not only do you contradict yourself but you obviously don't know a fucking thing about guns or hunting.
A silencer is lame, impractical and dangerous for use on a hunting weapon.
It greatly reduces muzzle velocity and to be truly effective you should use rounds that don't exceed 800-900fps muzzle velocity therefore limiting range and stopping power so it is an asinine modification for hunting.
An automatic weapon for hunting...LOL
any hunter that would ever consider using a full auto weapon is a moron. Have you ever fired a full auto weapon?
I have, MAC 10 and an AR15, full auto is VERY fucking hard to control and in a hunting environment asinine, dangerous and horribly inaccurate
if you can't cleanly take down your quarry with one shot, you have no business hunting.
short barreled rifles and shotguns for hunting....LOL
talk about limited short range and poor accuracy.
not to mention that every one of those modifications were specifically designed for combat weaponry, not for hunting.
only a dumbass would think those features apply to hunting weapons.
for someone who goes on and on about gun rights and shit you really are completely ignorant of the actual topic.
