Posted on 04/13/2014 10:29:01 AM PDT by Cheerio
President Obama has been asked to stop the importation of what 82 House Democrats believe to be military-style firearms such as the AK-47. They want to stop gun crime in Mexico. Maybe they would be more successful at stopping gun violence in Mexico if they fired Holder and revamped the ATF.
The ban would require no congressional action as the President has very broad authority under the 1968 Gun Control Act to prohibit the importation of firearms and ammunition unless they are generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.
Led my Eliot L. Engel (D-NY) and John Conyers Jr. (D-MI),they sent a letter to President Obama urging him to renew enforcement of the ban on imported military-style firearms that was previously enforced during the H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations.

The liberals are saying that Liberty is un-American.
“Please, democrats. PLEASE! I’m begging you. Please run on gun control.”

Arms manufacturers in this country will get another boost. John Conyers should go campaign at the Detroit Gun Works, I’m sure they’d be happy to have the work.
The Capitol Building and WH go gun free first.
The last time around (Bush 41 administration), some of the domestic firearms manufacturers actually lobbied for this.
That probably includes accepting back the US made M-1 Garrand Rifle’s from Korea that they are trying to return to us.
Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.
I hope the far left fringe runs an honest campaign for once - they should run on gun control, ObamaCare, and big government. I’m ready to find out if 51% of the country is ready to give up on freedom.
A little gun diversion. I watched this episode of How It’s made last night on the Science Channel. Hand made Holland & Holland guns. Very interesting old school and new school mix.
Uh-oh, there goes the price of AKs, thru the roof.
The Secret Service goes gun-free first. Let’s disarm the SS first and see how long they want to protect president mom jeans.
Thw BLM didnt back down because they had anything better to do. The militia from several different locals in these United States were called and showed up with their constitutionally approved guns to insure that the federal government’s shenanigans was held in check.
Thought there were more than 82 stupid and ignorant Democrats in the House. What happened to the rest? Can’t read or write?
Conyers thinks too many white “infidels” have military-capable guns. The Koran clearly states that only Muslims may possess weapons of any kind.
Is Conyers a muzzie? Probably not, but he’s fanatically pro-Islam just like his prez.
Ban guns/favor Islam - they go together like sugar & tea.
Yes not to mention it would be closing the barn door after the horse got out. Anyody who wants one of these weapons already has one or 12. :-)
Detroit firearms instructor Rick Ector debates Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump.
Its part 3 if it doesn’t come up correctly.
Ban the import of collectivists into America and DC.
Obama is not an American Citizen ,so the 2nd Amendment means nothing to him
George H W Bush banned the import of some in his term.
Chinese M-14 (M-1A)
Chinese .45 auto pistol
and many others.
We should get those names, post them in a register, and make sure they never get elected for anything again. Traitorous scum
“The militia from several different locals in these United States were called and showed up,,,”
And their IDs/organizations are now at the top of the list for preemptive before the next time - in my opinion - .
Note that Norma is importing .22 ammo to fill the void.
Too pricey for me.
Reviews (on Midway) show it is not ready for prime time.
I would guess the plan is....our government will buy the arms and sell them across the seas to the highest bidder.
Screw them. If they want to ban imports, they need to ban the importation of illegal aliens.
Did these idiots not see what just happened in Nevada?
Just keep it up fellas, the day is coming. Soon.
Of the 82 that signed the letter, these listed are Card Carrying Members of The Socialist Party:
—not in order—
Yvette D Clark;
Danny K Davis;
John F Tierney;
Donna F Edwards;
Eleanor holmes Norton;
Now, since when in the history of America, do we, the American People, allow COMMUNISTS to tell us ANYTHING???
Just paint the guns pink and they won’t look so military.
Look for increased urgency in gun confiscation efforts after the Bundy ranch showdown.
Most AK’s are made here as PCR-80’s.
Good to know! I’m a commie-gun lover since Vietnam.
The AK was built of steel & wood. The M-16 was a large plastic & alloy toothbrush.
All versions of AK can be made here but quite a few are imported here google “Centerfire Systems” in Versailles KY.
Note to Obama and gungrabbing dems...
It’s TOO LATE, the American People are armed as their
Still, you can try and take them...
I would advise against it though, many of
us are old soldiers and dieing in combat
would come as somewhat of a relief after
seeing what old age is like in a socialist state.
No large-scale domestic manufacture of com-bloc ammo calibers, though... yet.
The ones we gave them that they are selling back to us so they can buy more domestically produced weapons? No thanks.
