Screw that. There are a lot of collectors that can't have the things they would like to collect because they don't have $15,000 handy.
I think he was joking. As it is, I've met a couple of machine gun collectors who have no real interest in guns: they're in it for financial gain. In the leadup to the Heller decision, one of them actually mentioned that he hoped the Court wouldn't side with us due to fears that it might hurt the value of his collection.

I told him in rather colorful terms how little I cared for his opinion.

We would all love to see the Hughes amendment repealed, but we also need a whole lot of the other stuff attached to GCA 1968, such as FOPA as Tom pointed out.
Actually, the Hughes Amendment was tied to the 1986 FOPA, not the GCA.
