Surprised this petition has so few signatures. Are there multiple similar ones out there?

Both of these links are the same but I would have imagined that more people would have signed it by now.

Maybe people don't want to associate their e-mail address with any petitions?

I'm shocked it has so few signatures as well.

For the job I'm doing, I will certainly be hung, drowned, executed in some grotesque fashion for being in a position that is not agreeable to our great Leader's wishes.

I did sign the petition but I was wondering, anyway we have Assault weapons ban in CT, so if they reinstate the ban federally, what difference will it make for us ? 8)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_As ... eapons_Ban

Most of the ban is currently in place in CT but this section isn't.

The Act also defined and banned 'large capacity ammunition feeding devices' in the ban, which generally applied to magazines or other ammunition feeding devices with capacities of greater than a certain number of rounds, and that up to the time of the Act were considered normal or factory magazines. Media and popular culture referred to these as 'high capacity magazines or feeding devices'. Depending on the locality and type of firearm, the cutoff between a 'normal' capacity and 'high' capacity magazine was 3, 7, 10, 12, 15, or 20 rounds. The now defunct federal ban set the limit at 10 rounds.

What I can tell you is that the proposed ban is super, super comprehensive.
