Dear fellow American,
Did you know that Barack Obama has already banned nearly a million American made rifles?
Nearly a million rifles.
Banned by Barack Obama and his anti-gun cronies.
In a bureaucratic block the Obama Administration secretly banned the re-importation of American made M-1 Garand and Carbine rifles being stored in South Korea.
These rifles were used by the US military during the Korean War and left there after the war was over.
With one stroke of his pen, Barack Obama bypassed the Constitution and single-handedly banned nearly a million American made rifles by executive fiat.
In response, I instructed my staff to prepare a petition for you to sign to voice opposition Obama's Historic Rifle Ban.
Please watch the video they created in which NAGR Director of Operations Luke O'Dell discusses this latest gun ban with M-1 Garand expert Rory Edwards.
Make no mistake, these rifles were made in America, by Americans for Americans to defend freedom on foreign shores and are greatly sought after by American shooters and collectors.
Now State Department officials claim these antique, collector rifles could be used to commit crimes.
While the radical anti-gun crowd is giddy with praise for Obama’s latest back-door gun ban, law-abiding citizens across the United States are crying foul.
These outrageous claims are a thinly veiled attempt to distract from Obama’s special interest payback to the radical anti-gun crowd. This desperate pandering must not be allowed to continue. It has been common practice since the end of World War II to re-import these American made rifles from the foreign allies they were lent to after the war.
During the Reagan Administration a similar import request for 200,000 Garand rifles was approved. State Department officials say they are working with South Korea to “dispose” of these American made rifles.You and I both know that is bureaucratic code for the melting down and destruction of these iconic American made rifles.On top of banning American citizens from owning these rifles, Obama’s State Department is arranging for the destruction of nearly one million historic, American rifles.
To help dispel some of the myths surrounding this iconic American rifle, Director of Operations Luke O’Dell interviewed M-1 Garand expert Rory Edwards.
Let me be clear: at no time in U.S. history has the ownership of any part of this gun been restricted or banned.Thank you, in advance for joining me in standing up against this outrageous anti-gun action.
These firearms -- truly pieces of American history -- rightly belong in the hands of U.S. citizens, and Obama has banned nearly one million of them without cause.
