…it appears that the BHO Administration is taking executive action on firearms importation. Take a few minutes to read this: After Senate setback, Obama quietly moving forward with gun regulation. Here is the key portion of the article:

“The Importation of Defense Articles and Defense Services — U.S. Munitions Import List references executive orders, amends ATF regulations and clarifies Attorney General authority “to designate defense articles and defense services as part of the statutory USML for purposes of permanent import controls,” among other clauses specified in heavy legalese requiring commensurate analysis to identify just what the administration’s intentions are. Among the speculations of what this could enable are concerns that importing and International Traffic in Arms Regulations [ITAR] may go forward to reflect key elements within the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”

simple solution - buy Amercan.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Its early but I take it they are going to put such a high tax on ammo and plus the insurance that most people can't afford it.  Plus if your riffle is foreign made you can't get parts.

This came from Before It Was News and they were wrong about Assad being shot.

President Obama has side-stepped Congress by implementing portions of the UN Small Arms Trade Treaty through an executive order which can be used to ban the import of all firearms, ammunition and related supplies and accessories.
While patriots across the nation rejoiced when the US congress rejected flat on its face an attempt to force the United States into the UN Small Arms Treaty just weeks later a more sinister ulterior motive has been revealed.
Today, President Obama by passed congress and signed an executive which gives the federal government a power to completely ban the importation of guns, ammunition and even parts and accessories related to firearms.
While the UN Small Arms Treaty would have prevented the United States from both importing and exporting weapons, Obama has effectively signed on to the treaty with his new executive order while allowing the United States to export weapons of deaths to covertly funded clandestine operations in overseas nations where it seeks to further its imperialistic agenda.
At the same time, with nearly every other nation in the world signing on to the UN Small Arms treaty, other nations are now banned from doing the same which further leverages the United State’s power of shotgun diplomacy in nations that refuse to be puppets for the globalist elites that control America.

This UN Small Weapons Ban has been in the works for some time now, and WAY before Sandy Hook and Aurora.

So we can export weapons but most other nations can't import weapons? Who would we export to?

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein

People who will import them back in at double the price to the criminals who take no notice of the laws anyway.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Because every effort to implement laws that curtail illegal trade are being aborted by a certain interest group.

All under the motto: legal, illegal, who cares a **** as long as we sell 5000 boom bang 45 magnum a week. We are even willing to accept 10% more murders if we could sell 6000.

Unfortunately, this is apparently within his power to do this.  I disagree with dictatorial decrees, but...oh well.

I am trying to look to the bright side though.  This may be a huge boom for American manufacturers.   Undoubtedly they will be more expensive, but USA made guns really are high quality.  Might be good for jobs.

The problem I am concerned with is the ammo shortages.  This legislation will stop that as well and if you have a firearm that uses a foreign ammo...your rifle will soon become a club if you cannot get ammo for it.  Reloading is a possibility, but I am not sure if all of the calibers, casings and primers are available.

There was whispers on one of those "conspiracy theory sites" that there is talk in DC about limiting access or requiring registry to purchase reloading supplies...bullets, shell cases, primers and gunpowder...

If they can't screw you to the wall one way, they'll go around the corner and try a different angle...sickening actually.

I have a few "theories" about the apparent ammo shortage.  No evidence ...well..aside from the 1.6 "billion" rounds on order by Uncle Sam.

I guess some schmuck got the bright idea "what good is a gun if you have no bullets"...now with the "whispers" about reloading supplies...who knows where things will go...

Just my rather cynical opinion though...

Gun Import Ban Enriches Small U.S. Arms Makers

By KIRK JOHNSON, Special to The New York Times
Published: July 14, 1989


The Bush Adminstration's ban on imports of military-style assault rifles has created a bonanza for some small and medium-sized American gun manufacturers, which are selling semiautomatic weapons as fast as their assembly lines can make them.
Gun makers, dealers and distributors say fear is behind the surge that is straining assembly lines and swelling the lines of customers at some gun shops. The fear is that the Government restrictions will be expanded to cover domestic as well as imported military-style weapons.
With the Government apparently willing to resist the gun lobby and permanently halt imports, and with two of the largest producers, Colt Industries and Sturm, Ruger & Company, backing away from public sales of military-style weaponry, gun enthusiasts who want such weapons are rushing to buy. 'Seven Days a Week'
''Our factory is running around the clock, seven days a week, no holidays and no vacations,'' said Jack Friese, executive vice president of the Arms Corporation of America, a small Baltimore company that makes semiautomatic versions of the M-14 military rifle.
