Americans can’t be trusted with guns; at least that’s what many are reading into Obama’s cancellation of a deal in which Korea wanted to sell 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines as collector’s items to individual American citizens. Korea could sell the weapons without any issue were it not for the fact that our government originally gave them away in the first place; it’s okay to give them to a foreign government, just American citizens can’t have them.
“A State Department spokesman said the administration’s decision was based on concerns that the guns could fall into the wrong hands.”
You can read anything or nothing into such a statement; but there’s a pattern developing which would lead a reasonable and prudent person to believe the Obama administration would rather American citizens not indulge in 2nd Amendment constitutionally protected God given rights. Why else ban the sale of a weapon which could otherwise be purchased? These firearms are considered collector’s items and are some of the best examples of weaponry ever made; Thank you President Obama for showing where you stand on American values.
“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.”
Wasn’t that about the same time the Obama administration did a hundred and eighty degree change on United States policy when it sent Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to endorse the United Nations gun confiscation treaty ? This administration has shown contempt for the rule of law and the constitution at nearly every step of the way; the right to own and bear arms stands in their way of totally enslaving the citizenry.
“Asked why the M1s pose a threat, the State Department spokesman referred questions to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. ATF representatives said they would look into the question Monday afternoon, but on Wednesday they referred questions to the Justice Department. DOJ spokesman Dean Boyd referred questions back to the State Department.”
If you want that translated, “We don’t have a really good reason other than we don’t want American citizens to own top quality weapons; guns are evil. It’s on our agenda, a thing Obama and most progressives want to implement without having a leg to stand on until we have enough votes on the Supreme Court to make the constitution disappear.”
These posters came my way via email. I hope the message comes across loud and clear; keep your ‘cotton picking’ hands off my 2nd Amendment right to own and bear arms.
