C&R prices, are they about to skyrocket?
« on: August 31, 2013, 03:36:04 AM »
Are C&R prices going to skyrocket due to the new Obama rule regarding importation of 'military grade' weapons?



What sucks is I have been thinking about a Garand for a while but cannot afford one now, and I suspect the reimportation of semi-autos will be the most affected by this.

"The Obama administration unexpectedly announced two new gun control measures on Thursday, including one that would curb the import of military surplus weapons -- in a move that could anger collectors. "

    In the short run most likely as some panic buying sets in but in the long run not much... Many c&r guns are already being treated in a closed supply chain from one collector to another so not importing something that isn't being imported note shouldn't matter

    This shouldn't be a surprise though. They have already blocked the Korean M1s for a few years now

    But wait for them to go after ammo....

    I hope not, I've been looking to get a CZ82 in 9Mak. I too think Mugabee &Co. will go after the ammo......God, another 1,300 days of this filthy Chicago trash. This administration has given new meaning to D.C. (Dirty City)

    As I read the EO I dont think it applies is any way to foreign imports, just the REimportation of former US mil firearms.

    I think thats right from what I have read lately. It seems to be a targeted effort against the CMP. Just one more slash in their plan of "Death By A Thousand Cuts."

    From what I've read (more closely) yes it's on reimporting U.S. military. Which is going to in effect kill the CMP. I can't fathom why they want to take away our military history, but I guess nothing's sacred anymore.
    But, it seems like they're worried about this on the streets:

    If you wish for peace, prepare for war.

    A battalion commander of the 23rd Regiment 2nd Infantry Division reported during Operation Cobra, the long awaited breakout from St. Lo (July 1944):

    "I have no water, I have no chow, I have no batteries for my radio, I have no communication. My men are dead dog tired. I repeat, my men are dead dog tired. I have been given an order to attack. I am about to comply with this order. End of message."
