Congress: Repeal the Gun Control Act of 1968

    2. Petition by

This was an un-Constitutional Infringement of our 2nd Amendment Rights.  Let us correct a wrong! As long as back ground checks are in effect, the length of a barrel and other items should not be a reason to restrict ownership of certain types of firearms.

Now that we have defeated the latest attempt to restrict our Rights, the Manchin-Toomey bill, we need to make sure that our Government understands that we are lobbying to align our Nation back to the principles that the States were founded upon.  We will take a step-by-step, methodical, and well thought out approach to this injustice.  This is the start!

The ATF defines on their webpage, that the 1968 GCA was “[sic] enacted for the purpose of keeping firearms out of the hands of those not legally entitled to possess them because of age, criminal background, or incompetence."  We already have those checks and balances in effect today! We are not lobbying to end background checks.  What we are doing, is lobbying for a “common sense” approach to restoring our lawful, God given rights.  There is no reason to tax the citizenship of America on rights characterized as "unalienable," distinctly defined by our Founding Fathers.

Please send this to your family and friends, as well as your state, local and national representatives.  They need to know we will not sit by any more.  We will put our time, money and effort to remove any politicians with their own agendas not in line with our morals, principles, beliefs and RIGHTS!

      Ladies and Gentlemen,

      We are making progress... albeit slowly. But we are gathering steam! We're taking names!

      The acts that Congress and the President have taken to define and limit our rights are about power. Their power. In this world, that is what every person in power strives to maintain and expand. More power. Bankers derive their power from money. Lawyers from fear of jail or lawsuit. Politicians from control. Even hackers derive their power from the esoteric 1's and 0's that mean so little to most of the world's population.

      An equally armed civilian populace levels the playing field. We need to intercept the ball. We need to redefine the rules. We need to stop "defending" our rights. We need to limit THEIR power to take away ours. We need to take back lost ground. We need to act. To overturn and nullify those limitations placed upon us without our consent. It is time to make them defensive! Get involved! Keep petitioning!

      Brad

      Before the 1968 gun control act society didnt implode we were a more open and free society then than we are now there were no mass shootings and our Nation was alot less violent than now

      A person could order a gun from the Sears and Roebuck catalog and have it shipped to their house legally without an FFL transfer and guess what society didnt fall apart at the seams

      Give us our freedom back

      Not that this will go anywhere with the current administration and their hatred of the Second Amendment, but frankly, I would like to finally be able to acquire World War II and pre World War II era automatic weaponry without having to pay tens of thousands of dollars for each item. By refusing to repeal this miserable act, the government has proven once again that this country is run "By the rich, for the rich"

      This act has no relevance or practical significance in any modern US society.
