Import Bill

Senator Tester doesn’t like the Korean Garand situation:

Senator Jon Tester is introducing legislation to allow American-made guns that were given or sold to a foreign government to be re-imported and sold in the U.S.

Tester’s Collectible Firearms Protection Act comes days after he pushed the U.S. State Department to reconsider a decision denying the proposed sale of surplus M1 Carbines and Garand rifles from South Korea to qualified American buyers. Many collectors consider the firearms antiques.

Under Tester’s new bill, firearms that are lawfully possessed by a foreign government—and that are more than 50 years old and considered antiques or relics—may be re-imported to properly licensed groups and sold without written permission from the U.S. Departments of State or Defense.

    Starting his 2014 campaign early, I see. The Tea Party must be scaring the hell out of him.

    I wonder if he could get the M-14’s “demilitarized” and sent to CMP…….

    DirtCrashr: Only if you think Obama’s doing a good job.

    Tester is a lib Dem who has figured out that if he says the right things about guns and criticizes George Bush enough otherwise sensible people will say “Right on!” and pull the lever for him.

    Did I miss something? Was it conclusively shown that these guns were sold to Korea, not part of the loan program?

    I thought Tester had been generally good on guns – though I guess he voted for the Health Care bill and Porkulus
