There are currently two petitions getting traction at Whitehouse.gov, but more signatures are still needed to reach the 100,000 threshold that requires official response.
One petition is to repeal the 1934 National Firearms Act. This is the onerous act that severely restricted 2nd Amendment rights and established the precedence of acceptability for future additional infringements. It effectively banned classes of firearm such as rifles with barrels shorter than 16", shotguns with barrels shorter than 18", and various other things. Citizens can still acquire these classes of firearm, but only through a long process of ATF paperwork and purchase of a tax stamp. The ATF itself, in a recent internal memo, has complained that it costs them more in time and labor to process requests and that the volume they are receiving in recent years clearly indicates widespread public demand.
The second petition is to repeal the Hughes Amendment to the otherwise progun Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986. This was a last minute amendment tacked on to act as a poison pill, but because the President could only sign or veto the entire legislation Reagan was urged to go ahead and sign it since the rest of it was desirable. The Hughes Amendment banned the sale or transfer of automatic weapons after May 1986. You can only purchase an automatic weapon if it was manufactured prior to this date, so with a static supply the prices have soared to astronomical levels. Repealing the Hughes Amendment would allow sale and transfer of newly manufactured automatic weapons.

We have a unique opportunity right now to possibly roll back
some of the infringements rather than merely preventing new ones, so we must take the opportunity!
