Petition Seeks to Repeal Hughes Amendment

A petition to the White House is urging the Congress to repeal the 1986 Hughes Amendment.

If 100,000 signatures are submitted, then under previous White House policies, the administration would be forced to respond.  

As you know, it has been a longstanding goal of Gun Owners of America to repeal this language.   

In view of the David Olofson prosecution, which imprisoned a law-abiding gun owner for a malfunctioning semi-automatic, it is very clear that this language must be overturned.  

Gun owners can sign this petition here.

The deadline for signatures is March 21, 2017.
