    Guys and gals I'm posting a link to a petition to repeal the never officially passed Hughes amendment which banned the ownership of automatic weapons produced after May 19th 1986 by civilians. I understand that overturning a law such as this is an uphill battle, but conceding because something is difficult is admitting defeat and not the true American way. Even those of you who have no interest in automatic weapons should still have an interest in any legislation that chips away at our Second Amendment rights. This "law" has been in effect for over 26 years now and has not affected violent crime or the use of machine guns in crime, this law does nothing but take another freedom away from law abiding citizens. So I urge you to sign the petition, it only takes a minute or two and forward it to everyone you can get to sign it. Thanks for your support.
