yep and thats what I've read and here is my confusion
Quote:
Any U.S. citizen who is legally not prohibited from owning a firearm may purchase a military surplus rifle from the CMP,
Im sure there is more to it then this legally because of the purpose the act was started
Quote:
The CMP was created by the U.S. Congress as part of the 1903 War Department Appropriations Act. The original purpose was to provide civilians an opportunity to learn and practice marksmanship skills so they would be skilled marksmen if later called on to serve in the U.S. military.
It seems it could be argued that the CMP program is an extension of the 2a and all Americans allowed to own a firearm shall be allowed to own a rifle from the CMP .

My point is , would a court even listen to a case like this and is there a arguement to be made .
