Frog pot. Can’t have any jumping early...
Yep. It’s been working great for them as a strategy so far...
First shot’s already been fired.
We just didn’t have the gumption to return it...
“...Mausers, Mosin Nagants, and ...”
It’s not about anything to do with crime.
It’s about removing proven .30 caliber BATTLE RIFLES from the hands of potential Citizen Riflemen.
I don’t care if its an old bolt action surplus - it’s an 800 yard battle rifle that, in the right trained and skilled hands, can be an effective platform. Look at what the Afghanis did to the Russians with old WWII surplus Enfields. They outranged the standard Soviet AK47’s and AK74’s and shot the hell out of those Russian grunts.
M1 Garands, Mosins, Mausers, Enfields, etc. - ALL of these rifles proved their place in a thousand battlefields across the world over the last 65+ years. .30 caliber allows a Rifleman to operate OUTSIDE of the 5.56mm (.223) effective envelope by a few hundred yards.
Our adversaries aren’t stupid, by a long shot. They know what they’re doing.
And when it comes the M1 Garand, well, those rifles were paid for by AMERICAN TAXPAYERS, and they rightfully belong BACK with American taxpayers.
Clinton should have been held criminally liable for the destruction of taxpayer property when he ordered THOUSANDS of M14 Rifles destroyed - rifles that should have been converted to semi-auto and then sold through the CMP program back to the Americans who paid for them originally.
“...Its been working great for them ...”
Not as long as you still have one in your holster or slung on your back, brother.
Ace in the hole.
Obama’s one in a long line of Imperial Presidents of the USA. We’ve had nearly a century of them.
Will we remember this when one of “ours” is POTUS?
Unless we return the power to make law to the legislature we won’t regain our liberty. Make Congress approve all executive agency decisions. That alone will kill regulation and force only the “best” regulations as bills to the floor for real votes.
The Executive Branch only enforces and may not make law. Toss in the states and you have four separate and equal branches of government.
Use the Commerce Clause to bash liberal anti-market policies in the individual states and at the national level and viola - you’ve regained your liberties without any bloodshed.
We’ve adulterated the meaning of a nation of laws. Those laws are Natural Laws, not just any law. We have thousands of laws that are contrary to liberty and nature enforced by bureaucrats with sovereign immunity (a court created law, that needs to be legislated to death).
We’ve avoided a single king for a tyranny of thousands of petty kingdoms. If you look at the American power landscape it would look worse than 17th century Germany or Italy with thousands of little tyrannies saying “no, no, no”.
Clinton saved me from buying cheap Chinese ammo.
I think they see the writing on the wall though.
Speaking of walls, almost time to start putting some of them up against one...
“...writing on the wall though....”
They sure do.
Not enough of the population has been sufficiently brainwashed into believing in the Glorious Revolution of the Worker... They see it for the bullsh*t that it really is... and they see the current progenitors of it for they lying pieces of crap that they really are.
And that makes these critters very desperate... and extremely unstable.
bump for later
What I understand and ONLY what I understand
EOs apply to federal employees is what is shouted out all of the time. So Omuslim changes the wording around to Executive Action (EAs), Congress lets him slide like duck butter and the MSM says it is the law of the land.
No one left to call him on this but a few armed American Patriots ready to go just looking for a leader.
This president evidently believes that he is entitled to sidestep Congress, since it (the Republican-controlled House, especially) is "obstructionist."
This is all part and parcel of the leftist fetish for "getting things done in Washington"; as if it were a good thing for Washington to be continually coming up with all sorts of quick fixes...
This is hard to follow so far. There are few surplus foreign made weapons coming in the country now. Just 50 year+ old curio/relic classes. But our lend lease weapons from WW II are also coming in to CMP. cleaned up and sold to the public. This is already law that I doubt he can change by Exo but that doesn’t mean he can’t F it up and slow it down.-——————————just when I thot ammo sales were slowing down.
The last I read the feds had stopped the pending re-importation of carbines and Garands from Korea.
Also I have been told that CMP does not deal in re-imported weapons (which are all stamped as such).
Not trying to rain on your parade - If you have different info I would welcome being corrected.
I am still upset about not picking up a carbine when CMP had a bunch of them a few years ago.
I was being sarcastic in post 21.
Probably should have indicated that was the case.
We have thousands of laws that are contrary to liberty and nature enforced by bureaucrats
The country is dying from a slow death by a thousand cuts.
Perhaps. But the House learned under Clinton, that it does no good to Impeach if the Senate refuses to even look at the evidence.
The Senate controlled by Harry Reid would just laugh at impeachment.
If the Republicans take the Senate in 2014, impeachment might have a small chance to do some good.
It's millions of cuts administered by hundreds of thousands of little kings.
Much of urban poverty, particularly among blacks, is the result of local, county and state licensing, permitting and zoning ordinances. It's the same in health care, education, etc. They imposition of legal monopolies kills entrepreneurship and redirects risk to bad behaviors.
I notice that the contribution page is working properly even when the threads don’t fully open. If you want contributions you should probably fix the software first.
I was recently talking with a marina owner who is being crushed financially by environmental regulations because his property is, naturally, on the water in a so-called flood zone. The government has forced him to extensively modify his main office building and to implement a very expensive water run-off collection system. This is on top of myriad other fees, taxes and regulations he is subject to. He has been forced to lay people off and is nearing the point of bankruptcy after two decades of operation. He will likely sell soon — if he can find a buyer.
There are millions of stories similar to this one in today’s Amerika.
It is frustrating for me as well. Can’t post any thank you graphics.
Another victory for the unelected, unaccountable, government bureaucracies.
