Good News

Mike Simpson
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson today introduced legislation to prevent the U.S. Attorney General from arbitrarily blocking the importation of commonly owned and used firearms by American citizens. The “Firearm Importation Fairness Act of 2014” clarifies the standard required for the importation of sporting arms into the United States.

“For years Americans have been barred from importing ‘non-sporting purposes’ firearms—these firearms are already legal in the United States. The Obama Administration has taken this a step further by drastically restricting these firearms. This bill would change that by allowing Americans to import the same type of firearms that are legal to manufacture and sell in the US. It also recognizes the fundamental right of self-defense and prevents discriminatory treatment of law-abiding citizens.”
A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.

Not veering to far into politic, but being an election year, it might get through both houses. The NRA will have its political ranking out, that may influence some of them.

We can only hope. What ever happened to all those M1 Garrands the Koreans wanted to return to the USA?

It will pass the House, and either narrowly fail or narrowly pass the Senate. Either way, it's DOA when it hits the President's desk. HE's not worried about re-election.

Pass or fail, guys on our side will get credit for fighting the good fight, and those on the other side will take credit for stopping another wave of guns coming into the country adding to our already horrid gun violence problem.

That supposes that it actually gets to a vote this session. It may not get that far.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
