Default Obama bans importation of AK'S

Has anyone heard that the Obama administration has banned importation of Ak rifles. I saw mention of it on a different forum and was wondering if anyone else knows of this.

Thanks

Of course. The world has. It's a 'Russian-made' ban and not an 'AK pattern rife' ban. You can still buy AKs, just not from Russia. Bulgaria, Egypt, Romania, etc etc etc are all fine.

But the ban includes the Russian ammo, no? And isn't the Russian ammo plentiful, cheap, and most of what's out there right now?

I believe you should buy American anyway.

AK's are ugly foreign guns.

I believe you can buy what you want, and I'll continue to buy whatever I want. See how nicely that works out?

Russia isn't the only source for cheap ammo. Other countries will gladly fill the void. Serbia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Hungary, Czech Republic have also been providing ammo to import companies like Wolf, Herters, Bear, etc.

Meh... form and function are not always complementary.

Much of it is Ukrainian. Wolf is an importer, not the manufacturer. WPA comes from Ukraine, Wolf Gold from Taiwan. Golden Tiger is Ukrainian. Ukraine alone can churn out as much as we want. The Bears of color, on the other hand, are gone, and good riddance.
Kazakhstan sells us a lot of ammo in paper wrappers. Just try not to inhale the powder smoke. You don't know what they might start putting in it.

And who cares how many civilian airliners the Russians shoot down, as long as I can buy cheap ammo!

Remind me again where you found ANY of that in what I posted? You quoted me after all.



Have you tried to buy an American made television set lately???
