Did you enter an email address? If so, there should be a confirmation email that you use to verify your signature.

Thanks, I'm not getting one. I saved the link and I'll try again tomorrow after restarting my computer. Sometimes after going to PhotoBucket my computer starts acting weird and I need to restart.

OK, signed. For some reason IE didn't like that page and wouldn't let me sign so I used FireFox. Must be a MS plot.

We are being beaten by the tards that want his tax returns and want him to resign. This could be fixed by posting it on Arfcom.

The problem is that so few people even know what this amendment is, even firearm enthusiasts don't know. Maybe a different petition description?

14,493 as of this date. Forwarded this link to some friends, about half are afraid will get on a "list" if sign it. Everyone sent to currently own a full auto, suppressor, destructive device or AOW. Can't believe they think this will get them in deeper. I like being on lists. Figure the more dot gov papers submitted, background checks done, taxes paid shows a tendency to follow the laws of the land. Like never buying solvent trap parts online or with credit card shows not building devices and sidestepping the law. ATF shut down SD Tactical Arms solvent trap business, bet they confiscated their database of buyers if hadn't already gotten it through monitoring ISP's. Even a former FBI agent was arrested for having a solvent trap suppressor.

A bit off topic but considered buying one of the registered oil can adapters but discovered that changing the oil filter must be done by manufacturer to be legal by this lawyers interpretation.

https://johnpierceesq.com/suppressor...d-legal-traps/

Anyone know different? Think would be a handy device to own but if sending to have a filter change is required legally don't want any part of it. If ATF has ruled the adapter is the complete suppressor and not the filter too a handful of thread adapters and case of oil filters would be handy. Have a truck with a big Caterpillar and oil pressure spikes to top of 150 psi gauge on startup then drops to 40 psi idle and up big hill will ease up toward 100 psi. Have only found one filter that won't bust on startup and bet it would hold pressure of a magnum rifle.

The Washington D.C. swamp hasn't been drained far enough to permit this to happen.

Pretty close to 100k now.... I get we missed the deadline... bummer

Since the Hughes amendment is a law, doesn't congress have to be the ones to strike it down? Even if Trump wanted to, he couldn't, I thought.

EOs are a beautiful thing when in the right hands.

Also, it looks like this one made the deadline!

You are an ass and I hope you lose it.

Fed.gov ban-created "investments" are a travesty of freedom.

Every time you look at your "investment" I hope you feel nothing but shame.
