If politicians endorsed by our beloved NRA do unto us vis-a-vi Bush and his ban, does this not severely weaken the endorsement?
Politicians break promises. It's practically part of the job description. At the time of the endorsement, Bush looked to be a supporter of the RKBA. It was only after the Stockton shooting that Bennett pushed him into accepting the idea of an import ban.

Another example would be Kristen Gilliabrand, who appeared to be our friend until she landed in office.

Why wasn't the Clinton ban reversed by Bush?
Because the President can't repeal an act of congress by fiat. This takes us right back to why executive orders need to be circumscribed.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
