The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates.
“The transfer of such a large number of weapons — 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines — could potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes,” the spokesman told FoxNews.com.
Others will comment far more eloquently than myself. I will, however, suggest that Obama is a panzy, and that tyrants tend to be overwrought panzies. I would not be surprised to see him attempt to quarter his civilian force which he suggested should rival the military in size and strength amongst us without our consent and while searching for our weapons.
No, I am not kidding.
The MSM will shove his vile "comprehensive immigration reform" down our throats.
Liberals are turds on a hot day.
"...potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes..."
Purposes as illicit as maintaining a healthy regard from our metastasizing government.
I will own one, CMP or otherwise, and if the GOP has any set or fortitude this will not be the end of these weapons. Weapons we loaned, not gave.
Obama and his administration are sissies and that tends to end badly for all when they are handed a badge.
See police forces...and, no, I don't need to apologize to all of the fine officers out there, because the patriots and decent among them agree.
