    Default Obama To Ban Importation of Ammo, Magazines and Gun Accessories

    Executive Action: Obama To Ban Importation of Ammo, Magazines and Gun Accessories Without Congressional Approval

    Over the course of the last month, while Americans were distracted with the threat of nuclear war on the Korean peninsula and the devastation wrought by the Boston bombings, President Obama was quietly working behind the scenes to craft laws and regulations that will further erode the Second Amendment.

    Congress, and thus We the People, may have unequivocally rejected federal legislation in March which aimed to outlaw most semi-automatic rifles, restrict magazine capacity, and force national registration, but that didn’t stop the President from ceding regulatory control over firearms importation to the United Nations just two weeks later. What the UN Arms Trade Treaty, passed without media fanfare by 154 counties, would do is to restrict the global trade of, among other things, small arms and light weapons. Opponents of the treaty argue that loopholes within the new international framework for global gun control may make it illegal for Americans to purchase and import firearms manufactured outside of the United States.

    To further his gun-grabbing agenda, however, President Obama and his administration didn’t stop there.

    Now they’re taking another significant step against Americans’ right to bear arms – and they’re doing it through Presidential Executive Action, a strategy that, once again, bypasses Congressional oversight and the legislative process.

    …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.”[Emphasis added.]

    Depending on how it is implemented, the implications of this change could be huge. With the stroke a of a pen and without the consent of Congress, ATF bureaucrats could make ANY gun part or accessory (including magazines) or ammunition that were originally manufactured or perhaps even those designed for military use no longer legal for importation for civilian use. That might mean no more milsurp parts sets. No more milsurp magazines. No more milsurp ammo. No more milsurp optics. Perhaps not even spare firing pins. This could be ugly.

    I strongly recommend that you stock up on magazines, ammunition and spare parts for any of your imported military pattern guns, as soon as possible! Once an import ban is implemented, prices will skyrocket.

    Just five days ago the President vowed to push forward on gun control without Congress and Nancy Pelosi argued that no matter what Congress says, gun control is inevitable.

    This latest round of Executive Actions is what they meant.

    A direct on attack on the second amendment is difficult if not impossible, so they are trying to slither their way in through the backdoor by restricting international trade so we can’t import new firearms, by restricting access to accessories and gun parts, by heavily taxing ammunition and gun purchases, by mandating policies like forcing gun owners to have liability insurance, and of course, by identifying potentially dangerous gun owners and simply taking their firearms because of public safety concerns.

    The President recently suggested that the American people have spoken, and that they want guns to be restricted, banned and heavily regulated.

    If that’s so, then how is that a bipartisan Congress overwhelmingly rejected the President’s bid to restrict and outlaw private ownership of millions of weapons and gun accessories?

    Going through the United Nations and now implementing Executive Actions to bypass America’s Constitutionally mandated system of checks and balances is an act of desperation.

    Those who would take our rights have been left with no choice but to try and force their agenda upon us through dictatorial means.

    Absolute B.S. from the most Anti-American person to ever hold a high office in our government. He needs to be tried for treason.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    MANY IN GOVERNMENT WOULD NOT PASS A FIREARMS BACK GROUND CHECK BU THEY HAVE POWER OVER PEOPLE . I SERIOUSLY THINK ANY POLITICAL CANDIDATE NEEDS TO PASS A MENTAL HEALTH EVALUATION . HITLER WAS CRAZY BUT HE GOT IN POWER.

    MENTALLY ILL OR IMBALANCED POLITICIANS ARE THE BIGGEST THREAT TO THIS COUNTRY AN THEY GET CONTROL TO NUKES AN BOMBS .

    HOW IS THEY FEEL I NEED A BACK GROUND CHECK TO BUY 22LR SHELLS BUT THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF ALL THE SENATORS AN GOVERNORS , MAYORS, CONGRESSMEN, ATTORNEY GENERAL, JUDGES DONT ?????????????????????????????????????????????

    FIENSTIEN IMO IS MENTALLY ILL . AS ARE A FEW OTHER PEOPLE WHO GET ELECTED .

    HOW ABOUT WE SEE WHAT PILLS AN SHRINKS THEY TAKEN OR SEEN ?

    Ever since Communist Klinton was first elected, I have been doing everything I could to encourage people to get the guns and ammo that they will want for the rest of their lives. Some did and some didn't, Now those who didn't are crying the loudest.
    After he was elected a lot of people told me that Comrade Obamma didn't want to take our guns. They said that he had too many other things "on his plate. He would never take away guns. Therefore a lot of gun owners voted for the Socialist.
    I once posted an article on Northwest Firearms recommending to people that "if you don't have the firearms and ammunition that you think you may need the rest of your lives, get them NOW! The day is coming when you may no longer have that freedom! One mouthy jerk wrote something to the effect that" Well, let's see; I want to shoot one thousand rounds per day. So, if I live another twenty years I will have to go buy millions of rounds.... etc." He wrote a whole post smearing my suggestions. Some agreed with him, some others agreed with me. And, I practiced what I was preaching.
    As I said at that time: "the day is coming when you won't be able to buy guns and ammo-get them now!" Well, it appears that that day has come! I hope that all of you got what you needed! I feel that I am OK, but, I don't have any to spare. Those who could not believe that we would ever have a tyrant in the White House may have to do without if they didn't prepare when they were able to.
    Sorry, but you have had since 1992, when King Willy the Slick became President.
