I am from NY and now live in NC. I have signed the petition and such close-minded regulations are one of the reasons I would not move back. I am a gun owner and have passed all background checks required for purchase and to carry a concealed handgun. It's not a matter of gun control, it's a matter of self control. Plain and simple...use your head before you use your finger.

Thomas Jefferson said The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Quoting Cesare Beccaria).

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.

I only have one objection, and that's to the photo. That is a real life M16, not an AR15. As such, it is an automatic weapon. My signature is not to repeal the ban on the exchange of automatic weapons like the one pictured above, but rather the exchange of rifles that look almost identical to the one above, lacking only the ability to fire in automatic mode (as a machine gun). The way you can tell it's an M16 is by looking just above the hand grip. There is a round head part right above...

The way you can tell it's an M16 is by looking just above the hand grip. There is a round head part right above the grip, that has a line on it. It is the selecter switch that allows you to place the weapon if safe, fire, or automatic mode. An AR-15 doesn't have a word at the rear of that circle. That word is "auto" and only appears on military assault rifles.
My objection is not specifically to the private ownership of an M16, but rather that this image used in this manner could further the cause of confusing AR15s with "military-style assault weapons".
