I have seen some around the Internet demanding to waste the future Republican (and allegedly Pro-Gun) Congress on repealing the National Firearms Act.
As sexy as this could be, it would be an enormous waste of federal political capital with little to show as return on the investment. Full auto is a very small percentage of the firearms in civilian hands and we cannot make the same mistake that Opposition is making: Focus on the object and not on the people.
Where would I like to see congress go for? Three things: National Reciprocity without attachments. Simply stated if you can carry in your state, you can carry in the rest of the country. In fact, we are at a great moment for this now that every state in the union and even DC have carry laws.
Second: Institute the Coburn Amendment as law for “Universal Background Checks” and allow citizens access to NICS. For once, I don’t mind having a tool to make sure I can sell a gun to a person that is not prohibited, but this would also occupy the space that the Gun Control Groups feel needs to be covered to make us “safe.” It would weaken them in their demands for a draconian UBC both at the Federal Level and at State level.
Third: Reinforcing FOPA by allowing to penalize violators with fines and/or jail time plus lawsuits for violation of civil rights. This has to go alongside National Reciprocity as I can almost smell places like NY or NJ abusing Gun Owners that may have more than one firearm with them while they travel. I can see some New Jersey Trooper arresting not the person with the CCW but a spouse or friend because there is a spare gun and obviously (according to them) you are not gonna two handguns. Yes, it is harassment and yes, it will eventually be thrown out in court, but the idea is to stop the BS before it happens.
That is my opinion on what we should try to achieve at the Federal Level. Your mileage may vary.
