Obama Signs Firearm And Ammo Killswitch

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. http://beforeitsnews.com/international/2013/04/obama-signs-f...

There is a process

that can challenge an executive order so it does not take affect.

would you care to share

what that is?
this is news to me

Let it ever not be said,that I never did not do nothing for you.

Sucks to be an AK owner.

The possibility of THIS is the single primary reason that I went with a U.S. gun chambered for a NATO round rather than an AK; my supply will be steady and more or less unaffected - except for the Mosin-Nagant ammo, which comes from Russia.

But if you own an AK-47, or even worse, an AK-74, you can kiss your affordable ammo goodbye. '74s are totally reliant on Russian surplus 5.45, and the bulk of 7.62x39 comes from Russia, too.

Lots of .223 ammo comes out

with everything going on

and more people in the know,everyone who felt the need
for more ammo or arms should have already bought them
but do not despair,the MSP's can help refill an order
what might be wise though is buy extra parts for the ones owned

Let it ever not be said,that I never did not do nothing for you.

Buy what you can now


While hypocritical the bigger issue

isn't how it allows the US to export arms, but the impact it will have on private gun owners.

Weapons like the following could now fall under this potential import ban:

AK-47 ammo, parts, magazines, rifles

HK-91 and clones (such as the PTR-91) rifles, parts, magazines

FNAL rifles, parts, magazines

Glock/Ruger/EAA/Bersa/FN Herstal/etc. guns, parts, magazines, etc. manufactured overseas

Mosin Nagant rifles, ammo, parts

etc., etc., etc.

So the supply already in the USA could be all that there will be which will tend to drive prices up. It will impact gun owners in a number of ways such as:
- limiting the ability to practice
- making repairs and maintenance of their firearms even more expensive
- severely limiting the ability those who have started down the path with these types of imported firearms to adequately defend their lives, liberty, and property as provisioned by the 2nd Amendment which clearly states "shall not be infringed"

It's a big deal. The impact (lack thereof) to the MIC is a by-product and minor compared to how it affects the 300+ million Americans.

My comment from yesterday


A good commentary here:

So, anybody ready to defend the right of the "mentally ill" to defend themselves? Besides me, of course.


I expect so. I have this silly notion that if they have not committed a crime, they should not have any rights stripped. Essentially, this means it is now a crime to have a bout of depression. Is everybody happy?

This is how they do it, folks. One group at a time. Looks like I get to go first... I feel so special. See you all when they get around to you!"

This is not a gripe about a re-post, this is just what I had to say about it. Post it over and over and over until people get a clue...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yes, removed.



I will, fishy! Actually, so shall Larry Pratt.

While other Milquetoast 'pro-2A' would shy away from that, if you YouTube enough, you'll find Larry defending '2nd Amd. for everyone, and I mean EVERYONE' pretty often. Oh and of course, our Ernie Hancock!


I too, shall stick by and always extend and suspend judgement a-priori, and apply 'innocent until proven guilty,' (unless you're corporatist govt, the only 100% historically proven institutionalized repeat offenders of guilds of murderers/rapists/pedophiles/torturers/assaulters, to whom the RULE should always be: guilty, UNTIL proven 100% innocent), even to the mentally ill.

Pre-Constitution, Universal natural right of self-defense shall not be infringed, period. Last I checked, "unalienable" did not have a proviso that said "unless your innate genetic disposition is ______." Lest these Statist murderers don't believe that just because one is mentally incapacitated, they should simply let rapists and killers have their way with them.

er...yeah, rhetorical, I know: of course the statists naturally believe they should have their way with them, as they're eugenicists.

What an obnoxiously condescending attitude toward innocents, who have no control over being born that way, eh?

Besides, we ALREADY let the mentally ill murder everyone and anyone with weapons far more potent and massively destructive than a single or a an armory worth of AR15/AK-variants can ever do: govt whores.

Principles aside, speaking strictly in practical terms, a govt with bunch of lunatic pencil-necked douchebag chickenshiite pansies voting to send our own youth (and now our elderly) to foreign lands to be murdered, and couldn't bother to blink twice at the prospect of murdering millions more, of foreigners, ARE crazy, and can render a gazillion times more murder, mayhem, and damage, than what even a psychotropic-ed out mentally ill genetic specimen going postal can ever do be it with an AR15/AK47-variants, or a pressure cooker.

The scale of destruction by those who can vote, vs. those who can barely talk, are not even in the realm of logical possibilities of comparison.

SO I'd say, the real crazies in govt, be it at 'judicial' level or corporatist medicine level, are NEVER in any position to adjudicate who among my fellow American brethren are "crazy."

Then again, 'our' society has a long tradition of letting crazies dictate who are/are not 'crazy.' So, don't get your hopes up, folks.o(
