Obama Blocks 2 From My Gun Collection

The Republic Of Korea (ROK) has a huge stockpile of old American rifles M1 Garand and M1 Carbines that they want to sell back to the United States. First off let me point out that we didn't give those guns to them, we loaned them the guns for use during the war and for a couple decades following. So they are trying to sell us back our own weapons. They should just be giving them to us. But I am willing to let them make a few bucks, I mean we give ROK millions of dollars every year anyway. So moving right along, where do I send the money?

Not going to happen, why you ask angrily? Well the Obama/Clinton State Department has decided that, let me quote now; "Obama/Clinton State Department has reportedly denied the 'import' of these rifles from Korea on the theory that they might 'fall into the wrong hands' here in the US. The stories also report that the Korean plan was to sell them in bulk to importers who were then going to resell them in the US." I have wanted each of these guns for years, but the thousand dollar price tag has kept me far away. Adding 857,470 rifles (770,160 M1 Carbines and 87,310 M1 Garands) to the mix would bottom out the price and would make them affordable for all who want to own a little piece of history.

Just in case you are wondering, both the Garand and the Carbine are top loaded and hold eight rounds which make them one hundred percent legal to own in the US. They do not fall into the "Assault Rifle" ban of 2004. One thing that worries me is if the guns are returned to the Govt. without us paying, the Obama Administration might melt them down. Let's go ahead with the sale and these guns home where they belong in the hands of the people!


  1. Small correction: the M-1 Carbine is bottom loaded and 15 & 30 round magazines are available everywhere.

  2. I agree with the article but lament the inclusion of an ad for NRA. They have proven themselves to be defenders of their warchest and not so much for the 2nd Amendment. Red State has written quite a bit about it.
