There is a petition drive to stop this, if you believe in such things.

We Want Our Rifles Back!
By Jennifer Freeman

The United States government is denying the request of law-abiding citizens to buy back military surplus M14s citing international agreements that would make such a program, "problematic."

We can only presume that the referred agreement was made during the United Nations Conference on the Illicit Trade of Small Arms and Light Weapons in All its Aspects in July 2001. As referenced in a follow up article on NewsMax, "Members also agreed to place special emphasis on post-conflict situations, to destroy illicit or surplus weapons as necessary, and to act responsibly in export, import, transit and retransfer of weapons." Also suggested at the conference was, "'voluntary' collection of small arms and the confiscation of "illegal" weapons."
