The current administration was already blocking .30 Cal Carbine imports. This just gets it out in the open as official policy, and adds Garands to the list of blocked weapons. Pretty much sucks, but it's not surprising.
TYhis was done because congress was about to pass a law that kicked the State Dept. out of the business of prohibiting those returns. That shows you who was really behind the prohibition. Hillary was not alone.
What worries me is that IF Donald Trump becomes President, will HE authorize the re-importation of all those .30 Carbine rifles from Korea. We KNOW Hillary is the enemy when it comes to guns, but Trump is the wildcard!
Yes Trump the grump is a wildcard but look at it this way. No carbines are coming in now or if the Hilda Beast gets in. They will stay in Korea for sure. When they are finally allowed in they may be nothing but hunks of rust from poor storage. None of these will be collector grade as they have all been through at least one or more rebuilds. But they would be great shooters for sure.
