Obama Signs Executive Order Banning AK-47s
The Shooter's Log ^ | July 18, 2014 | David Dolbee

Posted on 07/20/2014 5:42:38 AM PDT by vmivol00

On Wednesday—a day before the Malaysian airliner was shot down—President Obama quietly signed an executive order targeting Russian oil, natural gas, finance and defense companies. Hidden in the details, was a section that effectively bans AK-47s. As always, the devil is in the details, so read on for the straight scoop.

Odumbo can write anything he wants but WHO will be following those ‘orders”? He is only putting restrictions on exports.

I might argue with the Romainian AK’s being “fine”. Ha ha! The VEPR and Saiga shotguns are incredible.

I suppose that if you were brought up by communists and used lots of drugs then ran around with terrorists in Chicago you would agree with the pResident.

This is wrong.

They banned imports of new AK’s made in Russia.

You cannot buy or sell AK’s from that company. If you own you AKs outright, it is legal to own and sell them. If you receive a shipment of them from Russia and you owe the manufacturer on them, then they are banned.

Ask type weapons are produced just about everywhere. Non Russian arms are legal and importable.

Bet the remaining stocks fly off the shelves at absurd prices. Might be a good time to stock up on Wolf ammo if they ban that, too.

Well, now there are more Russian made AK-47's available for everyone else in the world who uses them.
Cheaper too, supply and demand and all that.
The third world countries thanks you 0bama.

I can’t decide who is really behind that plane that was downed. Obama or Putin. Either is quite capable of such an act.

If you do not think the Obama admin is capable then look to the cold callous and evil plan being carried on at the border. Absolutely no regard for human life couched in “caring”.

The Bulgarian AK is a good weapon if you can find one. This may be an opportunity for American gunmakers. I believe Century Arms is putting them out as we speak on their website.

Your kid is correct.

My Romanian AK (Century International) is sturdy, reliable/never jams on Wolf ammo or any ammo. It is accurate and the price was right. It’s a fine piece.
I believe it may have been gun writer Patrick Sweeney who said that if John Wayne were alive today, his weapon of choice would be an AK.
Because the WASR has a stamped receiver, it is lighter, the receiver cools faster and it is cheaper to make.
President Gungrabber has no authority to suspend 2nd amendment rights against Russian weapons, although that hasn’t stopped him in trespassing against the Bill of Rights in many other ways.
The Romanians make a fine, utilitarian weapon, even if it is roughly milled. You can go without cleaning it, run over it with your truck, throw it in the truck bed, drop the mags in mud puddles—and it still works.
Suggesting that it is some kind of “Saturday night assault weapon,” well, your snobbery isn’t helpful to the critical matter of fighting this most recent infringement by our figurehead, gayboy tyrant on our 2nd amendment rights.

Be clear on the timeline. This article is correct.

Much of the press would have you believe the sanctions are a result of the MH17 attack. Quite the opposite.

This is not a “strong response” to the murders of innocents. We shouldn’t be asking if this response is enough.

The better question... Was the missile action a response to sanctions announced the day before? They clearly got the wrong plane, but was their intent a big F you to western interference?

If so... it should change our impression of the action and more clearly center the decision point back to Moscow.

Queen Barack can ban anything he wants to, apparently.

Who will file the lawsuit against the criminal in chief?
