Thread: Obama Bans 100,000 Guns

  1. #21
    I don't see the shortage, I have dealer flyers for $395 each, deeper discounts if you buy in bulk.

    As for these PARTICULAR rifles,
    If you dig a little deeper, were USED and are declared 'Unsurvivable' since they contain Korean made replacement parts.

    I don't know about anyone else,
    But I ruined a rifle with Korean made .30-06 ammo a few years back. Anyone remember that crap they were selling 'Dirt Cheap'?

    Since the rifles are a 'Safety Hazard' and the Koreans won't even use them, I'm not sure I want one!
    Now, if they broke them for PARTS, I might be interested in that deal.

    Up to you to believe what you want, but I wouldn't trust a Korean barrel or bolt in my rifles!
    I like my face, it might be ugly, but it's MINE, and I don't need it re-arranged (OR REMOVED!).


    I can see why 'Collectors' would want an M-1 Carbine,
    but I have NO USE for them!
    Inaccurate, Underpowered, Trouble Prone, Ammo is expensive and somewhat difficult to reload...
    I just don't get the attraction to the M-1 Carbine other than collectors...

    I'm not making excuses.
    I just don't care for them, owned two when I was young and they didn't work well for me...


    As for President Obama on 'Gun Rights', the NRA had to (VERY Grudgingly!) give him/administration passing scores...

    Rights to carry in federal parks,
    Rights to carry on Amtrak, even across states like Illinois, (Federal right of ways, federal laws, state can't stop you unless you get off the train)

    I'm a 'Liberal' that likes/carries firearms, so I don't think it's such a bad deal...
    *IF* they were rejected for mechanical reasons and not to limit ownership...
    I would be more worried about the flood of 'China' AK versions the bad guys like to own,
    And the flood of import and domestic 'Cheap' handguns than some vintage, well worn long guns.

    We all know the Dems are Ignorant of firearms,
    Do you suppose anyone has explained the difference to President Obama in a way a 'Newbie' can understand the M-1 has an INTERNAL magazine, can not be cut down and function, and is a 'Relic' that only us old farts & young collectors want to own?

    I sure like to be in that explanation/demonstration to the President!
    Maybe take him out to the range and bang a few rounds!
    Who knows, maybe he'll be bitten by the 'Bug' and want his own!...

    Gun Ban Obama & Company Blocking the Sale of M1s to Law-abiding Americans...

    Obama Administration Moves to Block the Sale of M1s to Law-abiding Americans

    -- State Department intimates that these historic relics may be melted down

    Friday, September 10, 2010

    Apparently, things are going so well in the Middle East that the State Department now feels it can turn its attention to banning the lawful possession of firearms by American citizens.

    In a little-noticed decision in March, the Obama administration reversed an earlier decision and moved to block the importation of 857,470 lawful M1 semi-automatics which were being sold by South Korea in an effort to raise money for its military. According to Hillary Clinton's State Department, this action was taken because the M1's "could potentially be exploited... for illicit purposes."

    Even worse, a spokesman for the State Department left the impression that the valuable historic relics could even be melted down, as Clinton's husband did during his administration. Suffice it to say that this is just another reiteration of the same anti-gun political theatre. And the cheers coming from anti-gunners like Dennis Henigan of the Brady Campaign are ample proof of that.

    Possession of these guns by Americans is lawful. They are antiques of historical interest, particularly for those who, unlike Clinton and her husband, served this country honorably in America's foreign wars. And anyone wishing to acquire one would have to go through an Instant Check.

    If any American, going into the November elections, had any doubt that Barack Obama and the Democratic Party leaders hate guns and have contempt for the Second Amendment, this is proof. Reps. John Boozman and Paul Broun are submitting a letter to State Department Secretary Hillary Clinton -- demanding that this unlawful decision be reversed.

    And we are working with several legislators to offer an amendment on the next available legislative vehicle which would prohibit the administration from blocking the importation -- or even the destruction -- of these firearms. Please see the ACTION item and pre-written letter below.

    Have you recently renewed your GOA membership?

    If you havenít renewed your membership lately, then there's a lot of information that you could be missing. In our newsletters, GOA takes on recent UN efforts to impose global gun control and has provided its members with postcards to inundate their Senators in opposition to any arms control treaties that would infringe upon our gun rights.

    In fact, current members should be expecting another update on UN gun control efforts that will be arriving in their mailboxes soon. We can't fight all our battles through email and that's why we need you to be a member of Gun Owners of America.

    You can go to Join GOA Online With our Secure Online Membership form. and join Gun Owners of America for the cost of a box of ammunition. Get your friends and family to sign up as well. You'll be glad you did!

    Write your Representative and urge him or her to cosign the Boozman/Broun letter which demands that the unlawful decision against the M1s be reversed. You can go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center to send your Representative the pre-written e-mail message below.

    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    Dear Representative:

    Please stand up for the Second Amendment in opposition to the Obama administration's anti-gun efforts to block the importation of -- or even destroy -- over 850,000 legal, historic M1 semi-automatic firearms.

    Reps. John Boozman and Paul Broun are submitting a letter to State Department Secretary Hillary Clinton protesting this unlawful action.

    I urge you in the strongest terms to cosign that letter with them. You can contact either Boozman's or Broun's office to get a copy of the letter and to indicate your desire to add your name to this effort.

    Thank you.

    your name here
