so the hughes amendments purpose was to prohibit civilian transfer of autos. However when I read it a while ago it made exceptions for law enforcement and government use, can't seem to find the full amendment to read it as written though, strange, I have read it before but the only one I can find now is a short one sentence line that states the basic purpose.
From what I understand you can acquire nfa weapons as a individual, trust or corporation. So if we can somehow sneak the Hughes amendment in some other bill, and add "corporation" to the list of exceptions we could theoretically own mgs.
1. It would leave out obvious traces of private ownership probably. Since in reality the guns can never belong to a individual.
2. pre 86 guns could still retain some collectors value since they are still the only weapons that can be privately owned.
3.mg's will still be banned to keep the democrats from throwing a fit(I would think), because instead of belonging to a person, they will have to belong to a corp. In their mind they may think actual businesses with security concerns have these.
I am not sure how easy it is to form a corp that basically does nothing but acquire weapons, but quite a few people go that route now.
this is the sneakiest way I can think of the get rid of it, while a total repel would be great this could be some alternative.
No, I didn't say something was actually being done, just a theory that if we wanted to repel the hughes amendment, we could maybe try without repelling it and just ad corporations to the list of exceptions along side LE of who is authorized to have post samples. Post samples would still be banned for civilians, but civilians could form a corp and then their corp could own them.
This is just a theory I thought of, nothing that is being incorporated into any bill. I know there is much desire to repel the Hughes amendment but I just thought that instead of try to do away with it, which would be difficult, simply ad to the exceptions, that way civillians could own MG's without actaully owning them( corp property).
