Obama bans russian AK47 and parts
Day before the ML17 flight was downed, Obama signed yet another executive order placing more sanctions on Russia, most visiable is the ban on Russian AK47 and related parts.

But no, none of this is planned, it's all chance.....

Hmmmm....

At the link provided by OP:

(snipped)
"On Wednesday—a day before the Malaysian airliner was shot down—President Obama quietly signed an executive order targeting Russian oil, natural gas, finance and defense companies. Hidden in the details, was a section that effectively bans AK-47s. As always, the devil is in the details, so read on for the straight scoop."

--

I watch the 'executive orders' page, and this is not listed on it.. yet anyway.

So, did Obummer really sign one? Or does he sign EOs but not list them all?

Shows here the last one he signed was July 8th:

As I understand it; This is a byproduct of sanctions against Russia. It will include any firearm kits or weapons imported to the US from Russia. The most important being Saiga.
Ak47 parts and kits can still be imported from other countries that make them.

Re: Obama bans russian AK47 and parts
While I am not a fan of the AK47 weapon system, and think it is far less effective than its American counter-parts. This is wrong. Its starts with "one" and ends with "all." At what point do we start to use the weapons we covet so much, for the reason we are allowed to have then in the first place. To stop tyrannical governments and the kings that lead them.

Ah yes, true! And then there's that. He seems hell-bent on creating problems here, rather than fixing problems.

Have tried looking back to the last president who actually was a 'good guy', who actually helped fix problems. And sadly, I haven't found one yet.

I thought JFK. Cuz after all, everyone in my childhood 'seemed' to love him. But reading up on him, seems he was involved (perhaps unknowingly?) thru his father Joseph, who made deals that involved JFK in nefarious things. Am thinking JFK may have been killed when he realized how his father had involved him and refused to go along with it all. Not sure yet.

But since then? Have we ever had a president who was actually FOR the people of the USA? Who stayed out of the business of other countries? And who took care of the problems at home?

I think it's all been a 'wish' of what we could have... perhaps never a reality.

Not likely. From a legal standpoint, its a sanction against Russia, not technically a ban on a firearm, although it has that effect. The same legal justification for this would not work elsewhere, certainly not for domestic production.

Re: Obama bans russian AK47 and parts
Seems like such a hypocritical thing to do, making this sanction against Russia... all while trying to take our guns, and then providing guns to the rebels in other countries which enables them to turn around and wage war against others and 'we the people' in the USA.

We aren't fooled by 'the rebels' who are covered head to foot and pretending to be someone they aren't. Our 'idiot in chief' and the bigger idiots behind him, gives all of 'the rebels' in these different countries their marching orders and arms them as well.

Who is HE to bring sanctions against anyone? sigh

The same situation applies to purchasing ammo, while of course the government hasn't banned 22lr firearmes, their indirect actions of placing rescrictions on lead smelting and government agencies contracts for all types off ammunition has caused problems in obtaining affordable firearm ammunition.

I used to go to the shooting range at a whim with the smallest concern of having ammo to practice with, now it the biggest issue as if you don't have ammo, you can't use your firearm. My kids no longer ask "Dad, can we go shooting range?" But rather "Dad , do we have enough ammo to go to the shooting range?".

Re: Obama bans russian AK47 and parts
He can't ban anything other than what is imported. So..no new imports of the weapon or parts. Big deal...manufacturers will step up and fill the void.
 Quoting: Chip


actually this isn't doing anything to help his gun ban agenda. most of the AKs are from romania, bulgaria, yugo etc which can't be banned because those are not 'russian allies'. even the ammos are made in Ukraine, ruled by US puppets now. what's the f'ing point?
