It is essential to protect miners, as well as to prevent the use of precious commodities to fund war. Your proposed weakening of Dodd-Frank rules to protect the people are an ill-disguised attempt to help the rich get richer at the expense of the majority.

As a retired jewelry salesperson, I can assure you that many people are aware of these protections and fully support them. Customers would frequently ask about the source of metals and stones because they support Dodd-Frank.
