I happen to like the CMP program and have benefited from it, but....it would not be an attack or 2A or unconstitutional to close down the CMP program.
how is it not an attack? when this rifle(browning bar 30/06) is legal, yet this rifle(m1 garand) is not.

both semi auto, both 30/06, both have internal mags.

how is banning one and not the other okay????

What burns my ass is that the dickheads in Washington (Obama included) say that civilians should not have access to "military grade" firearms and then classify damned near every firearm know into that group.

Fact of the matter is that unless the firearm is in the exact same configuration as is what is currently issued to our troops in combat then IT ISN'T "MILITARY GRADE" AT ALL!!!!!

Every single firearm that has been issued in the past but is not part of the current arsenal cannot be included in the definition of "military grade". Period.

That pesky part of the constitution provide for the common defense. Until recent history soldiers were allowed to keep there government issued arms. Promoting financing and encouraging proficient use of arms among its citizenry does nothing but provide for the common defense.

Saw this post, in addition to Orest confirming the same.

Fear of Impact on the

Civilian Marksman Program
Dear TSRA Members, Family and Friends:

TSRA headquarters has been inundated with calls from concerned members.
Below is the latest information researched and provided by High Power Rifle
Director, Ken Gabe from Belton.

This information is minutes old and
could be considered "from the horse's mouth".

Civilian Marksman
Program status:

Information provided this morning by a CMP
spokes-person:

"The latest Exec order, action, policy, or whatever it
turns out to be has no impact on the CMP. From what we have read, the action
applies to private importers. CMP has never imported a firearm and will never
import a firearm. Any rifle we receive is transferred to us by the U.S. Army,
who is not affected by the latest news. All of the rumors and reports were
unfounded and were made without anyone verifying the accuracy of the reports
with CMP. We will be sending a short and simple statement to all our
constituents this week.

Thank you checking with us instead of just
continuing to report our demise."
TSRA and the CMP program are historically
tied together and the story of our history is being compiled. In the meantime,
a brief explanation from our archives. Click here

I have to wonder who does not understand the Constitution regarding the 2nd Amendment to the Bill Of Rights. The 2nd restricts the Federal Government from removing arms that could be used by the militia. The guns banned by Obama are clearly protected for civilian use. The Democrats tried this under LBJ. They wanted to punish NRA members. Obama and Holder are trying the same thing. It will not hold up the CMP arms will be allowed. The Left just loves the power to punish anyone who disagrees. Remember it was the Socialist who invented concentration camps.

No worries. Very emotional subject and a lack of clarity (imagine that) from the administration.

Plus, I didn't want a run on Garands jacking up the prices .
