President Obama To Ban Importation of Ammo, Magazines and Gun Accessories Without Congressional Approval

April 23rd, 2013

barack obamaOver 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 regulationsthat 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.

    This is a replay of 1989, when the elder Bush bent to hysterical comments/demands of those afraid of armed citizens and began limiting what weapons/spare parts could be imported, especially those evil “assault weapons”. Which had no effect on crime/violence. Here we go again!

    These aren’t huge new laws, they are executive actions and there’s not more than a hand full of republicans with the stones to go against him. Especially his little b!tch John Boehner. What Barry wants, Boehner gives him@from the d

    I’m all for gun rights, and availability, but when people keep posting articles saying that next week all guns will be banned and everyone should STOCK UP NOW, it really angers me. Enforcing huge new laws dont happen that fast, and these suggestions only drives up the price, and empties out the supply.

    Sites like these are more effective means of gun control than a law. Gun and ammo prices go up every election\major gun event, not because of law, but because of panic created by people like the author.

    This is nothing new, and EOs for gun control have a rich bipartisan history:

    In 1934 after the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, FDR signed the National Firearms Act (mentioned above as a possible basis for Obama’s executive order) and in 2007, after the Virginia Tech massacre, President George W. Bush expanded the federal background check database.

    In 1989, then President George H.W. Bush issued an executive order halting the importation of some semi-automatic firearms after a mass school shooting Stockton, California. He based his executive order on the 1968 Gun Control Act and used it to ban the shipment of what could be considered “assault weapons” unless they were used for sporting purposes.

    The fate, you are dumb as a box of rocks…the weapons are not bolt action….

    Do the laws and executive orders pertaining to guns and ammo effect the military or law enforcement?

    Bullshit. Take the tinfoil off and cite some credible, reliable evidence on this if it’s honestly happening. Stop buying into the gun manufacturer/billionaire ploys, sheep!

    Great… this will go a long way to removing those curio and relic weapons that have, for so long, been at the heart of all the mass shootings and violence in the USA.
    Let’s face it, those bolt action weapons that have 5 round magazines and are approximately 5 feet long are the primary “go to” for almost every gang banger looking for a concealed weapon. The havoc that these weapons are causing is staggering.
    (I hope you caught the sarcasm, I was laying it on kind of thick!)
