I just received an email a while ago from the NRA reporting that the Dept. of State is blocking the return of approx. 800,000 M1 Garands and carbines from South Korea. (The 800,000 figure seems a little out of whack? Maybe 80,000?)
Now I understand why, when the CMP announced they were out of M1 Carbines, that they also said they did not expect to get any more.
The Brady Campaign is reported as saying, these guns are a "threat to public safety".
Here's a link to the article:
NRA-ILA :: State Department Squirms On Garand And Carbine Imports
I urge that those of us who are so inclined should contact our Congressional Reps and Senators and kindly and politely demand they get this position changed!
I don't feel I'm a "threat to public safety". How about you?
Nothing like a little gun control through the back door while no one is looking.....
I seem to recall that when the Clinton Admin. was in full sway, they had thousands of these historic firearms (you know, the ones that won WWII), destroyed. Can you imagine it? True pieces of American history crushed and ground up like so much scrap?
