On Wednesday Barack Obama used his powerful pen to effectively ban AK-47s, and other Kalashnikov Russian-made imports, indefinitely. This will include the import of parts and accessories so it affects current owners as well as those looking to make a new purchase. If you like your gun, you can keep it. Just don’t expect to be getting parts for it without paying a small fortune.
The Executive Order was issued under the guise of punishing Russia with more santions. Considering AK-47s are one of the weapons that this administration, and certain members of congress, have been looking to ban, that excuse doesn’t seem to hold much credibility. As John Galt said, “The good news is Obama has not banned Vodka imports from Russia yet, probably because he is the biggest homolush in Amerika.”
Don’t be fooled. There is always an agenda.
The ban is effectively against all AK-line Kalashnikov imports, which obviously covers much more than just AK-47s.
Kurt Nimmo reports:
Obama exploited the conflict in Ukraine to target the importation of the popular AK line of firearms manufactured by Kalashnikov Concern in Izhmash, Russia. The unconstitutional ban includes the Saiga line of rifles and shotguns.
The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) attempted to soften the blow by stating the executive order does not outlaw Kalashnikov firearms legally purchased in the United States prior to the ban.
The OFAC, according to its website, “administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States.”
The criminalization of an entire line of foreign manufactured firearms is possible under “national emergency powers” and there is no appeal process.
No appeal process? I thought I was living in America.
Is this the “Hope and Change” that people voted for?
You can read the details of the sanctions at treasury.gov or you can simply stick a fork in your left eye if you are looking for something more pleasant.
If there is a bright side to this story it is that there is now a tremendous opportunity for an American manufacturer to step in and seize a larger market share.
Obama can play games all he wants but MSNBC viewers better not find out about this. In a recent poll, 88% of MSNBC viewers supported constitutional carry. Don’t be fooled. This is not just a conservative issue. That is just the story we get fed by the “far” left mainstream media.
Wake up America. You are being lied to and the man in the Oval Office cares not what you think. He only cares about what he wants you to think.
