One thing nobody mentioned is that the President signed it too. He could have vetoed it but choose not to and allowed it to stand. If you want it fixed do what we did with concealed carry in National Parks!
I think you misunderstand how the US government works.The president does not write legislation. He either signs legislation that has passed both houses of congress or he vetoes it in its entirety. The president does not have line item veto.

The Hughes Amendment was part of the 1986 GOPA which was a very pro-gun owner piece of legislation. Reagan could either sign the entire bill or veto it. The Hughes Amendment was larglysomething intended to try and kill the entire bill.
