On February 19th of this month a petition on the White House official page calling for repeal of the National Firearms Act of 1934 closed for signatures…
258,833 people signed
More than twice the necessary number to elicit an official response from the Executive Branch.
While this is only a small measure and could result in a “we’ll look into it” response it puts the federal government on notice that we as gun owners are actively seeking to shape the policies that surround our Second Amendment rights and to remove now asinine limitations and regulations.
This petition was a great first step and will put the Trump administration on record with a response. The potential is there for this to be one of the most Pro-2A administrations in a long time but it will only follow through if we continue to put that pressure on through written notice, education, and vigilance of the issues. There are still plenty of 2A opponents out there who refuse outright to use logic and reason to form objective opinions and still swing the effective emotional outrages around to get the visceral votes to pass terrible legislation.
This is another great step.
But we’re on a ruck march…
