My buddy who is an armorer in the Mo National Guard said that they are about to turn in 14 vietnam era M-14 match grade sniper rifles. These were used before the M-21 system came out I think. These beautiful weapons will be cut in half and turned into paperclips for the liberal anti gun bills. I cant believe they wont let us buy these back from the guard. I think an armory raid is in order here...just joking. Can anyone else believe that they are going to do this?

What a f***ing waste.

They should be sold in a auction to raise money. The money could then be used to pay for Alec Baldwin's ticket out of the country.

have your buddy try to convince the higher ups to give them to the state (emergency management agency. in Georgia they call it GEMA. law enforcement agencies can get these weapons instead of destroying them. the ones i have seen were converted to semi...it least they are not paper clips. Gema gives our dept crap loads of military gear, used but in real good shape. weapons are regularly available.

Those rifles were paid for with American tax dollars, and they should be offered back to the American taxpayer before any are chopped up. This is so typical of our wasteful government. I would not be surprised to find out that this wasteful policy is in place all across America. Some politicians friend or large contributor is going to get a NEW multi-million dollar rifle contract to resupply these rifles. It smells so much like that.

I just found out that these are not full auto. They have been made semi only for use in high power matches. They are completely match-grade and in great shape for as old as they are. They were used as sniper rifles before and had since been transferred to the guard. Anyone have an idea how much they might be worth?

So far they are safe. There are actually people here who hate to see the waste. I imagine they will eventually be scrapped. What a shame.

Call your Senators and Representative ASAP. Get in touch with the Congressmen on the Armed services committees. Or try to arrange to have these transfered to a Spec. ops unit. The SEALS are still using M-14's and would probably like to have some more. Do anything you can to keep these from being destroyed short of breaking the law. Get on the phone and send some e-mails and stall the turn in as long as you can. Some unit out there can use these. Even if they can be sent over seas as foreign aid at least there is a chance they might come back after all this anti gun crap dies down. Do it now, do it for the children!
