Subject: Double Short & Long ETFs; Uptick Rule

Good Morning:

The current environment is forcing investors like myself to purchase these double short ETFs as a hedge and ve seen how their value multiplies as they create market downturns at the end of the day. Jim Cramer understands this and the uptick rule well. I support Jim Cramer as he is for a strong America, and I urge the SEC to talk and work with him.

MY QUESTION: Does anything prevent people in unfriendly and terrorist counties from purchasing these double and triple short ETFs

Thank you.
