There is so much hype and bull$hit on the web. Fox news got it wrong too.
There is no "executive order" banning guns from import. There has never been any "executive order" banning guns from import. Aministrations and the BATFE have wide latitude under the "sporting purposes" clause of the GCA 1968 to ban guns from import. Three US administrations have done this: Reagan, Bush I and Clinton. Now it will be done again.
Think about it: An "executive order" can be reversed by another administration. Once the BATFE bans a gun from import it becomes US law. It takes an act of congress to reverse a US law. Anyone who closely watched the Fast and Furious extravaganza are well aware that the weak kneed, limp wristed congress lacks the guts to do that.
