Default Garand's may not get to come home...

http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/08/obama-continues-ban-on-importation-of-600000-historical-collectible-m1-carbine-rifles-fate-of-86000-garands-still-in-doubt/

Seems that the M-1's may be blocked because of the magazines.

I think it's just our idiot in chief showing his true colors, and hoping this falls under the radar.

IMHO these were given to the Koreans during the war and need to be given back. Send them all directly to the DCM for distribution.

Hey Robo, The Garand carries multiple rounds the last time I saw one. Am I missing something here! Gotta love the Commander and Chump.

The M1 Garand uses an internal en-bloc and the M1 Carbine uses an external magazine.. Something the idiot(s) in Washington must not have realized when they were making their decision... Course they probably believe that when they cover their eyes they cannot be seen ....LOL

The garand is an evil gun that helped stop national socialism. Hitler was just trying to give free healthcare to the world. Cant have an evil symbol of corporate greed like the garand coming back in quantity

It also killed a lot of communists and they were just trying to redistribute the wealth, just like Occupy Wallstreet and our President.

What a bunch of morons...IIRC, the carbine was issued to troops who, due to their particular job, couldn't carry a full sized battle rifle....a stopgap between the Garand and a pistol. And now, in the real world thinking of the anti's, it makes sense to bring home the semi auto '06, but leave the "only because it's better than carrying a pistol" M1 carbine behind.

I don't know which is worse, the fact that they are so stupid, or the fact that we've allowed things to degrade to the point that these idiots actually get to tell us what to do.
