      This announcement will surely generate an enormous amount of bad (and willfully misleading) press without any sort of follow up comment or clarification.  The administration needs to get out in front of it and explain exactly what the import ban means and for what firearms.  The import ban certainly has little or no impact in reality (other than on the Garand collector circle), so maybe they just wanted to make it seem grander in nature for pure PR reasons?  I did check in some of the "usual suspect" online locations and, as predicted, this is being trumpeted as the end of the CMP and all surplus rifles.  That simply isn't true, but why give the other team a softball pitch to knock out of the park?

      The sequester is the new Republican immigration reform plan. Make things so bad here in the US that no one will want to live here.
