BTW: Obama would not be the first president to ban a shotgun from import. That distinction belongs to the "gunowners champion" Ronald Reagan? In 1984 Reagan set a very dangerous precedent when he became the first president to ban a long gun from import. He cited the "sporting purposes" clause of the GCA 1968 when he banned a shotgun from import. In 1986 Reagan banned another shotgun from import. Presidents, Bush I, Clinton and Obama cited the Reagan precedent when they banned guns from import..
