This is so asinine.... Glad I got my two AK parts kits when I did....

Sadly the whole no job thing kept me from getting the last couple parts kits that I needed for my receiver blanks. I am not even going to say what else is on my mind.

Chicago says "our gun control is very poor, seems we can't hit anything we're shooting at."

Maybe it's for the bazillion AKs & parts we're about to build and ship out - so they somehow won't come back.

I still don't see how he has anything to do with regulating this.....

It's not quite clear from the article what weapons would be restricted from being re-imported. Do they mean an M1 Garand by "military grade firearms," or full auto M16s?

In reply to MadScientistMatt:

They mean "Everything that was exported from the US"

F/A M16's couldn't be imported by civilians anyway. Stupid F/A ban in the 80's and they all had to be on the NFA registry a long time before that. Basically this is covering massively outdated bolt action and semi auto weapons from being reimported. It doesn't make sense at all.

Gotta watch out for all those crusty OG Korean/WWII vets. Can't have them shootin' up the place. BTW - if you can shoot one of these out the window of a vehicle, you're a better man than I.

One statement is total bullE36 M3. This was NOT unexpected. THey have been blocking this for some time.

It also involves M-1 Carbines, which have those infamous high capacity magazines.

You mean that it doesn't make you feel warm and fuzzy that your president and elected representative is fulfilling his promise by leaving out those details and trumpeting how much he's doing to solve a problem?

Hopefully no ones sarcasm meter is broken on this one.

This is a stupid move that will only serve to make things more convoluted than they need to be. While making a "gesture" which is ultimately pointless.

M2 spec was 30rd.........Currently, the best source of new magazines for our carbines comes from Korea. Nicely made.

Even though it technically isn't an assault rifle, its an immediate precursor to them.

Oh, a carbine sure, but if you want the "OG" punch on your man card, you gotta try hangin' an M1 out the window of your Impala and touching off a full 8 round clip. NOTE to gun vocab Nazi's, in this case "clip" is the correct term -

In reply to kazoospec:

Clip is the correct terminology for the garand......as it isn't an enclosed container. +1 for impressing me. You could use a garand for that, it'd just be a bit "big"

Maybe they are diverting the Garands to Syria.

Technically both.... LAPD fills blue trucks full of holes and NYPD just shoots 8 people trying to kill one guy.
