Obama Bans Over 100,000 Rifles From US Civilian Markets

The reasons are laughable. The only serious conclusion that can be drawn is that Obama is actively working against increasing the supply of legal firearms to responsible citizens. This is far from Obama going house to house at taking people's guns, but it does seem a step toward restricting a civilian's ability to exercise their second amendment right.

"According to The Korea Times, the Obama administration has blocked efforts by the South Korean government to sell over a hundred thousand surplus M1 Garand and Carbine rifles into the United States market. These self-loading were rifles introduced in 1926 and 1941. As rifles, they are especially well-suited to community defense in an emergency, as in the cases of community defense following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Along with AR-15 type rifles, the M1 rifles are the quintessential firearms of responsible citizenship, precisely the type of firearms which civic responsibility organizations such as the Appleseed Project teach people how to use.

According to a South Korean official, “The U.S. insisted that imports of the aging rifles could cause problems such as firearm accidents. It was also worried the weapons could be smuggled to terrorists, gangs or other people with bad intentions.”
...
Legally, it is indisputable that the guns are importable. Being over 50 years old, the rifles are automatically “Curios and Relics” according to federal law. 27 CFR section 478.11. Accordingly, they are by statutory definition importable. 18 USC section 925 (e)(1). Notwithstanding the law, the Obama administration has the ability to pressure the South Korean government to block the sale of the guns.

President Obama was elected on the promise that he supported individual Second Amendment rights. His administration’s thwarting of the import of these American-made rifles is not consistent with that promise.

  1. A post, as an article, can be about anything and the name does not imply anything. My audemars piguet replica with sponsored content here, is the blandness of it, the lack of personal opinion for sake of the money. Using the original clasp on the rubber strap looks like crap. We seen hideous things no sane person would consider replica rolex but hideous not being treated as the hideous monstrosities they are, and I think that the root of the problem. There are literary ways in which you can call a thing hideous and at the same time keep the sponsors happy. In my opinion, rolex replica straps are somewhat acceptable only in the case when your watch uses a crocodile alligator strap, and you live in a hot climate that could cause your strap to wear out very quickly. Bakelite is not used anymore for numerous breitling replica sale and I think perhaps a little too brittle for a watch bezel. First door handle that meets will be the end of it. I have a vague recollection that he is maybe a musician, but could mention any swiss replica watches of his if my life depended on it.
