Dear Sir,Madam

I implore you to either pass legislation that will allow one of two actions. Firstly, naked shorting should be prohibited for every single listed stock. Naked shorting is a non-economic event since the shares are sold without putting up a dime in equity. If this view is not shared by the SEC, then I recommend the passage of a law that will allow for "long naked buying" so that investors can buy shares of stock without actually putting up any equity just as in naked shorting. So STOP ALL NAKED SHORTING ON ALL EQUITIES AS SOON AS YOU CAN CAUSE ITS KILLING OUR MARKETS
