    From what I can tell this same crap has been peddled for five or more years according to the most educated person I can find on the subject. They're having problems negotiating the deal cause of factors other than "Obama hates guns."

    This is a bull**** article that pops up at a convenient time right before elections and conservatives go all chicken little all over the place. It's getting to be pathetic.

    the libs never do that before an election? They have already started running against Bush again

    they won't pass a gun ban because they saw what happened in 1994. If they thought they would pick up seats by banning all guns they would. Their Attorney General said he wanted to reinstitute and extend the clinton gun ban and he filed an amicus brief against gun rights in Heller v DC
    You're such a blind bigot! You just said, "Well, he hasn't done what I accused him of doing YET, but, I'll bet that he would, hah!"

    Past history is the best indicator of future performance. Obama and Biden's past history on guns is anything but stellar.

    You're logic is like throwing a piece of steak into a lion's cage and arguing that since the lion didn't yet devour the steak, lion's don't eat meat.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    With the trouble they've had from Republicans passing every ****ing bill through congress, do you honestly think they'll risk the political fallout from a guns bill...

    Obama isn't AS stupid as you think he is.

    FOXNews.com - Obama Administration Reverses Course, Forbids Sale of 850,000 Antique Rifles

    The South Korean government, in an effort to raise money for its military, wants to sell nearly a million antique M1 rifles that were used by U.S. soldiers in the Korean War to gun collectors in America.

    The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates.

    A State Department spokesman said the administration's decision was based on concerns that the guns could fall into the wrong hands.

    "The transfer of such a large number of weapons -- 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines -- could potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes," the spokesman told FoxNews.com.

    "We are working closely with our Korean allies and the U.S. Army in exploring alternative options to dispose of these firearms."
    That bull**** man, I just got my license to buy stuff like that.

    It's like the retarded restrictions on Russian and Chinese weapons.
    Like someone is really going to run around and commit crimes with antique M1's.

    For ****s sake, what the hell do these idiots think.

    I don't understand this.
    These guns will be cheaper than domestic made new guns.
    With such a large surplus, it would allow more people to own something that is usually high priced because of the collectors market.

    Obama isn't AS stupid as you think he is.
    Its because he is not stupid why he try to pass little pieces of it here through incrementation, have someone sneak into various bills or wait until the 2nd of half of his next term in office where he would not have to worry about political fallout.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I suppose. But by that point there would be an even stronger Republican presence in both houses so I seriously doubt you have anything to worry about.

    With this restriction, they don't have to pass a law.
    It's an import ban, which can be controlled by the executive.

    I don't think they are idiots. They think that he majority of Americans idiotic enough to buy their "gangs might get their hands on them" excuse.





    This should be a crime. What an asshole.
    I agree
