This is a real bad rule which does nothing but hurt honest gun owners.
From what I have read this directly affects the CMP program. As I understand it Obama directly referenced the nearly one million rifles that we sent to Korea which have been sitting there for the past 50 years.
I entered a raffle for a Garand just last night. You can never have too many you know. I walked up to the raffle table and asked how many tickets I could get for $20. The guy said "well, aren't you gonna take a look at it?" and I replied "I know what they look like. It has to be worth at least the $20 even if I don't win it."
For the record, I did look at it. The receiver is early 1940's Springfield. It has been refurbished at the armory but all parts are in excellent shape, the stocks are some beat up, but not too bad. Drawing is next month.
