Obama Forbids Sale of Antique Rifles

Apparently Obama thinks "bitter clingers" just can't be trusted!

The South Korean government, in an effort to raise money for its military, wants to sell nearly a million antique M1 rifles that were used by U.S. soldiers in the Korean War to gun collectors in America.

The Obama administration approved the sale of the American-made rifles last year. But it reversed course and banned the sale in March – a decision that went largely unnoticed at the time but that is now sparking opposition from gun rights advocates.

A State Department spokesman said the administration's decision was based on concerns that the guns could fall into the wrong hands.

  1. They need to define 'wrong hands.' I can't see criminals, hoodlums, and gangsters wanting these, so who's left? The rest of us...we are the wrong hands according to Obama.
