Skip to comments.Obama’s new executive order will kill the 110-year-old Civilian Marksmanship Program

The White House announced on Thursday that it intends to ban almost all re-imports of military surplus firearms to private entities through executive order, which would effectively shut down the 110-year-old Civilian Marksmanship Program.
In a Fact Sheet published on Whitehouse.gov today referencing the upcoming executive order the ban on importing military weapons is designed to keep military-grade firearms off our streets. Exceptions for import may be allowed for museums.
The CMP tightly controls the importation of obsolete military weapons. The program was created by the U.S. Congress as part of the 1903 War Department Appropriations Act with the purpose of allowing civilians to hone their marksmanship skills, should they later be called into military service.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Yeah, because CMP firearms are devastating the inner city. I despise these asshats.
He can only do this if congress allows it. Throw his EO in the trash where it belongs.
Yeah, I’m sure there are lots of M1 Garands and M1 Carbines in the hands of gang members.
Kicking myself in the arse for never getting that Garand.
I’m a bit concerned of a risk that our Imperial ‘Resident’s trashing the Constitution may trigger a pendulum swing in the other direction, handicapping the office for when we get a Real President. The net effect is 0’ getting away with murder, and then, say, a President Cruz would lack power to undo and retract the damage.
Of course, something had to replace all the Springfields and Krags... not to mention those evil Mossberg 44US target rifles.
I’m surprised they didn’t have that waiting for him to sign after his first inauguration in 2009.
Congress needs to take him to court for legislating through EO.
Congress needs to impeach him now. Bring it to a vote just before the election, and then throw it to the Senate as the new Senate comes in.
Exactly. I own a Garand, carbine and a 1903 A 3. Gee, does that make me an evil gun owner?
The very devil incarnate. But with good taste.
If Bush did just one percent of what Obama is doing .... where’s the MSM outrage of Constitutional rights being usurped by this moron?
NRA lawsuit in 3.....2.....1..... Not on our watch Erkel !
Stay safe Slim !
We must have been posting this at nearly the exact same time. LOL!
Does he have the authority to do this?
Of course. He destroys all worthwhile things and foists on us all things perverse and useless.
