Disallowing importation of military surplus weapons should go a long way toward totally eliminating shooting deaths in places like Chicago when the perp is using a WWII Soviet Mosin Nagant or German Mauser.
Mausers, Mosin Nagants, and legally-registered machine guns are used in so few crimes that it's effectively statistical noise.
Last I read, the most common weapon associated with homicides is a .38 caliber revolver, and the most common shooter description is someone who looks just like Obama's son. If he had a son.
This will have zero effect on the urban shooting pandemic, which should be obvious to anyone with two neurons that are in close proximity. The price of Mausers and Mosin Nagants should go up on the online auction sites today.
My thought is that he promised his low-information voters that he would "do something", no matter how stupid and meaningless the gesture.
Clinton saved me from buying cheap Chinese ammo.
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.
