Not sure if this is quite the right place, but being that it is political in nature i thought this one be a good place. I found some petitions with the help of a friend and a few need some more votes and are firearms related.

removal of arbitrarily designated SBR/SBS from NFA (https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/lead-way-removing-arbitrarily-designated-short-barreled-rifles-and-shotguns-national-firearms-act/Zc2GTB4c)

Removal of Silencers from NFA (https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/%21/petition/lead-way-removing-silencers-national-firearms-act/6hm2ByPv#thank-you=p)

*forgot this one*Own automatic firearms produced after 1986 (https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/repeal-prohibition-fopa-own-automatic-firearms-produced-after-1986-firearms-owners-protection-act/9cj85Ngr)

The above really need some love.

Repealing the patriot act (https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/!/petition/repeal-patriot-act/JF1pdPKg)

Abolishing the TSA (https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/!/petition/abolish-tsa-and-use-its-monstrous-budget-fund-more-sophisticated-less-intrusive-counter-terrorism/c7L94bFB)

Even if SBR/SBS's and supressors were removed from NFA, they would still be regulated in CA per its own penal code wouldn't they?

:yes:

Just like AW & Standard capacity mags are ok outside of CA but not inside of CA because of our own PC.

These petitions are a huge waste of time. They must get posted 2x a day on every gun forum on the planet.

Is it the petitions that are a waste of time? Or is posting them on gun forums the actual waste of time? Curious. Seems that people who frequent these boards like to talk a big game, but when it comes time to put their name on something that might make a difference, most (not all) put on their tinfoil hats and slink away.

Do you really think that if all 70k+ people that are registered on this site signed a petition that no one would notice?

Do I have a dog in this fight? After a fashion.

Yes.

Yes.

NFA issues are political suicide at the federal level. Only detachment from the (sad) reality of politics can delude someone into thinking "if we just get enough signatures...."

For me it's more a symbolic thing, I tried to help further civil rights and lessen the I infringement of the government. Do I expect action on the petitions, no that's silly. The thing is it shows the displeasure of the people in a verifiable and measurable way. If your scared of going on some list, to late if you have bought a gun. You are on a list.
