I e-mailed my congress critters first thing this morning when I heard about it.  I don't know what else can be done.  I will send e-mails before and after the next elections too.

Keeping M1 Garands and Carbines from coming into the country is not saving any lives.

Does this affect mosins and sks?
Link Posted: 8/29/2013 11:35:14 AM EDT
No, it does not affect Mosin's and SKS's, it only affects U.S. weapons that were sold to foreign governments from being re-imported. Clearly this is targeted at the Garands and Carbines in South Korea, also clearly a dick move. Just another useless act by the "anointed one" that will not make a single American safer but will penalize those of us that collect milsurps.

I thought all the M1s in South Korea were already bought and paid for by Century?

And the Korean ones they've been holding up for YEARS now?

When was the last time a large group of lend-lease rifles came back that WEREN'T the ones that came back from Greece years ago?

I'm not trying to be a smartass. My understanding is any private company needs the State Dept's approval to bring US military arms back into the country and they aren't granting their approval often, if at all.

This is more "business as usual" by the administration. It's still stupid, but it really isn't a new position, just a new way of saying "No!"

Not yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were next, especially the SKS'.

I mean, come on, if M1's are "getting to the street", they'll probably go after something that had been used "in the street" a LOT more often eventually,

Clearly, but it really isn't about "safety", any more than "assault weapons" bans are. .

A little history lesson for you youngsters.  The original ban on reimportation of US military weapons goes all the way back to 1958 (not a typo).

The change was lobbied for by...  Wait for it ...  US weapons manufacturers!  They were losing significant amount of sales due to the numbers of weapons coming in.
Link Posted: 8/29/2013 6:30:04 PM EDT
Yeah, that'll work to stop gun crime.  Think of all the shitcago thugs who wont be able to get more garands for street crime, yeah.  This will end up just like everything else this rtard administration has done, absolute failure and meaningless bullshit to appease the bleeding heart pussies who still worship him.  He can eat a bag of dicks.

/end rant.

Yup, why do you think the DoT ban on surplus HMMWV's came around the same time GM started selling the civilian H1.

Yeah, because we hear about so many M1 Garands being toted by gang bangers or used by spree killers...  

More BS so Obama can look like he is "doing something"...  What the whole thing really amounts to is a a big F_(< YOU to the firearms community (collectors & shooters) by the Obamites.  We need to give them a big F_(< YOU back by doing whatever is legally possible to try to get as many of them out of office as possible in the upcoming elections.  We need to make the midterm 1994 elections look like a good day for the Democrats.

Not sure if the CMP 'imports' the Garands/Carbines.  They are not import stamped.  This new anti-crime executive order may only affect importers.

CMP does not Import rifles. Rifles are returned to the US Army that were loaned to other countries, they are then turned over to CMP
CMPs Director of operations stated this will not affect them

This is what I've been looking for - an organized effort to try to get Obama's executive action reversed/ rescinded. I'll be contacting my representatives tomorrow.

Thanks so much for posting this.

Century takes a cheap shot at the CMP in that release, and spread some disinformation.  The DOD does not import martial arms for the CMP as they allude to.  The DOD receives returned US government property that was given as foreign military aid (some of which in the case of 30 cal rifles) are then donated to the CMP.  Big difference. It is not bought back or re-purchased from those countries by the DOD.  The DOD does not profit from it, nor is the CMP a quasi government agency as they claim. The CMP is a federally chartered non-profit 501c corporation that uses the rifle sales proceeds to further civilian marksmanship. They don't personally profit or line their pockets with the proceeds from sales.  It goes into an endowment unlike a for-profit corp such as Century. Those comments are nothing more than an infantile attack by a company who thinks they alone should be able to corner the market on all firearm imports and movements into this country even though there is a marked difference between what the CMP and Century do.  

I do not agree with this executive action BS by the White House by any means, but [email protected]%& Century for throwing that shit out there in that press release.  


Petition on WH.gov has been going on since last week:

Century cockbags need to do a little bit of reading here:

I think by reading through the lines that the 250,000 that the state dept has OKed per the white house press release are the M1s that Century bought from South Korea, so I hope we see them.  Dont get your hopes up on any carbines or any future M1s after these last 250,000
