It covers re-importation, and specifically does include the military rifles, specifically the M1 Garands and M1 Carbines that were exported to countries like Korea for the war. Those are the rifles specifically they are talking about. The Executive Order would prohibit the RE-
importation of these rifles.
This is what Orest said that I found:
"wow - three pages before I get to reply - here is my answer:
it just happened this morning and I don't know when I will have time to evaluate. We have to do today's work today and process orders we already have, and then hit the road for Cody.
From what I read - it has no direct impact on the CMP. Of course others will argue it."
He then later closed that thread because it had gotten "too political". OK, fair enough. He is not a politician.
If anyone has found anything more recent from Orest please post it and provide the link.
If you went to the White House link I provided http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/08/29/fact-sheet-new-executive-actions-reduce-gun-violence
and read carefully
you would have seen this last paragraph at the bottom which reads
Today, the Administration is announcing a new policy of denying requests to bring military-grade firearms back into the United States to private entities, with only a few exceptions such as for museums. This new policy will help keep military-grade firearms off our streets.
If there were an exception for the CMP, don't you think that it would have been specifically mentioned as one of the "few exceptions?"
And from my perspective, Orest is taking the easy route by saying what he said. It may have "no direct impact on the CMP", but it will, as it has been presented, directly impact the number of firearms available for civilian purchase through the CMP. He is splitting hairs.
