    Obama Administration Reverses Course, Forbids Sale of 850,000 Antique Rifles

    It looks like Obama is showing his anti-2nd amendment side.

    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."
    "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 regret that there aren't 850,000 antique soldiers holding those antique weapons.

    what do you expect from the most anti gun administration in history

    for years the DCM (now OCMP) has sold surplus garands and MI carbines to qualified buyers (no felonies, proof of marksmanship activity, membership in a recognized organization) and very few of those guns have ever been misused and almost only when stolen.

    I own 6 garands and 6 Carbines purchased through the DCM and one is being used by a young man who is soon to start USAF ROTC and is a world class shooter.

    Obama and his scummy minions are enough to make any patriot want to puke

    the government once was paid for those weapons by citizens who had already paid for them with taxes.

    those weapons didn't cost the government anything and they made money off of them

    obama is a scummy gun hater

    nothing more nothing less--a MI garand is hardly a weapon that has much criminal utility given they are four feet long and cannot be concealed by anyone short of Ralph Samson or Kareem Abdul Jabbar

    Using that logic you could say the government pays for nothing, as you can never tell what spending in the federal budget was borrowed, printed, or actually collected.
    And most anti-gun President in history? What anti-gun laws has he signed? Literally none, and I'm pretty sure none is less than Clinton's Assault Weapon Ban.

    you need to look at Obama and Biden's records over their political careers versus clinton and gore

    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

    they don't-the government would collect the money

    given our huge deficits only a moron would be against selling stuff like that -a garand in excellent condition sells for about 900 dollars, in good condition about 500, A carbine in excellent condition 800 or so

    they could raise alot of money with those weapons but they aren't going to sell them to other governments since they are obsolete as military armaments. (and most other countries don't trust t heir citizens to own such things)
