Nearly 1 million American firearms.
Banned by a stroke of Barack Obama’s pen.
In a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama Administration quietly banned the re-importation of nearly 600,000 American made M1 Carbine rifles.
And I’ve just discovered Obama may be blocking as many 300,000 1911 Colts too!
That’s nearly one million pieces of American history denied to the American people.
The M1 rifle, developed in the late 1930’s, carried the United States through World War II seeing action in every major battle.
General Patton at the time called the M1 “the greatest battle implement ever devised.”
The rifle is largely credited with giving American soldiers the advantage and securing victory for the allies.
During the Korean War, nearly one million of these rifles were brought to South Korea and left with the South Korean government afterward.
Now, South Korea wants to give American gun collectors the chance to get their hands on this unique piece of history.
A piece of American history that Barack Obama would like to see go down the memory hole.
That’s why I want as many Americans as possible to put themselves on record opposing this gun ban by signing the Official Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.
Will you please join me?
This is just the latest in a series of anti-gun schemes from the Obama Administration:
*** A new so-called “Assaults Weapon Ban” — targeting ALL semi-automatic rifles and shotguns — which, unlike the Clinton ban, would NEVER expire;
*** An outright BAN on “high capacity” magazines — banning the sale and manufacture of magazines holding more than just a handful of rounds;
*** A National Concealed Carry “Standard” — designed to make it even more difficult for law-abiding citizens to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families from assault;
*** Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Catch-All Gun Control Scheme” — to create a national “cannot buy registry,” allowing citizens to be stripped of their Second Amendment rights on a Justice Department whim, effectively banning all private gun sales.
That’s why it is essential that Americans like you and I take a stand against the M1 Carbine and 1911 gun ban!
It has been common practice since the end of World War II to re-import these American made rifles from the foreign allies they were lent to during the war.
But the Obama Administration departs radically from the American tradition.
In fact, on top of banning American citizens from owning these historic firearms, Obama’s State Department is arranging for the destruction of nearly one million of them — ironically, at a time of ballooning federal deficits.
It’s an outrage!
These firearms — truly pieces of American history — rightly belong in the hands of U.S. citizens.
That’s why I was glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is helping fight this power grab in the U.S. Senate.
Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?
Do you believe that President Obama banning the re-importation of these historic firearms is an unprecedented and unconstitutional power grab?
Do you support Congress forcing President Obama to reverse his ban and save these American made firearms from destruction?
If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.
Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Gun Ban.
Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.
United States Senator
