White House War On Garands

Obama blocked the import of M1 carbines from Korea.

NY banned magazines over 7 rnds (which includes Garands at 8 rnds)

Here's the WH statement on their contempt for older firearms:
 Eliminate restrictions that force the ATF to authorize importation of dangerous
weapons simply because of their age: ATF is required to authorize the importation of
certain “curio or relic” firearms, and outdated regulations include all firearms manufactured more than 50 years ago in the definition of “curio or relic.” But today, firearms manufactured more than 50 years ago include large numbers of semiautomatic military-surplus rifles, some of which are easily convertible into machine guns or otherwise appealing for use in crime. Congress should get rid of restrictions that prevent ATF from changing this definition, enabling ATF to ensure that firearms imported as curios or relics are actually of interest as collectibles, rather than letting these rules be used as a way to acquire fully functional and powerful military weapons.
 So according to Obama, WWII is no longer of any 'interest'.  Guess there's not enough vets left to make a voting block.

They don't just want to ban AR's like Durbin claimed. They're after ALL semi-autos (and all guns in general) and will make up whatever nonsense they can.  Garands 'easily convertible' and 'appealing for use in crime'?  Seriously?  When was the last time a store was robbed by a WWII re-enactor?

Old weapons will be banned.  New weapons will be banned. Big weapons will be banned. Small weapons will be banned.  And then we'll have laws (and crime) just like Mexico.

I want the President to show us a list of the ones ever actually used in crimes in the US, and which ones are "easily convertible" into machineguns ... especially compared to domestic production models.

Markie Marxist sez: "We have to ban Garands because they're too well suited for use by counter-revolutionaries. Besides, our Marxist/warrior/hero/government agents are really scared of those big Garands! How are we supposed to dominate and control America if people can shoot back at our government agents with those big Garand things? It's just not common communist sense to allow the peasants to have guns like that! It's going to be really too hard to push the peasants around if they have Garands. That's why we banned them in New York, and why we have to ban them for the rest of America too."

If the Second Amendment doesn't protect weapons suitable for militia use, what would it protect?

Guys, you are never going to convince the civil-disarmament crowd that they are wrong, they simply don't care. It's time to dig in and take a very firm stance--because they act like little children and can be led that way, too.
