I've been following this issue since it first surfaced.
Let me first say that I REALLY hope I am wrong. But I believe that the CMP will be very much so involved in this.
Executive Order / Executive Action, whatever it is being called is in context very specific to government. Yes, the CMP *technically* does not import the rifles but the government does (Army from what I hear), and then turns those rifles over to the CMP which is now a commercial enterprise. The EO/EA would stop the government from importing the rifles in the first place so the CMP will not get them.
Think about it in the context of this administrations proven anti gun stance. Why would they let themselves (government) import guns to give/sell to the CMP for resale to the civilian sector. It just makes no sense, like all the other anti-gun legislation put forward.
