Gun Control Reform of 2018
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
We the people have been subjected to countless measures of burdensome and unnecessary gun control acts since the NFA act of 1934. We as a group of not only civilians, but as a group that is key to national security request that our natural, unalienable rights be restored immediately as it was intended for us per the 2nd amendment. Furthermore, we recognize that while the 2nd amendment does not give us our right to bear arms, but it merely makes mention of a right that any free individual has.
We are petitioning that our rights be restored immediately as there has been no viable evidence that has come from gun control laws that prevents violent crime, but, in contrast, it has only impaired the freedom of the people.
While we agree that certain measures such as the NICS system can be effective and is a reasonable restriction when employed correctly, it works effectively, but only if the system is used appropriately, and not disregarded, much like what happened in the last several mass shootings.
We submit that all the pertinent information that can go to the NICS system should indeed go there, from every state, but any further legislation against our right to bear arms is not welcome, and we are asking for the following measures to be done:
- Use NICS as a standard for background checks, and mandate all states to report the appropriate information to NICS to prevent further potential issues.
- NFA 1934:
Keep the fixed $200 tax on the manufacture or sale of machine guns and sawed-off shotguns.
Remove ATF wait time as the NICS check will provide adequate background information for the immediate sale of the item.
Remove NFA items from national registry and destroy all documents of current registered items.
- Gun Control Act of 1968:
Drop the age limit of 21 to purchase a handgun back to 18 years of age.
- Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986:
Remove the the banning of ownership of machine guns that are manufactured after the date of May 1, 1986.
With the exception of the applicable $200 tax, the act of owning a machine gun or any other item listed under the NFA act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 is no different than any other firearm and shouldn't be regulated any differently than any other firearm.
