Obama bans import of 100,000 M1 Garands & Carbines from S. Korea

I probably ought to be happy about this because it's sure to create a spike in business for the gun shop where I work, but it still pisses me off to read that Obama is banning the import of 100,000 genuine U.S. M1 Garands and M1 Carbines from South Korea. Read the full story at The Volokh Conspiracy.
According to The Korea Times, the Obama administration has blocked efforts by the South Korean government to sell over a  hundred thousand surplus M1 Garand and Carbine rifles into the United States market. These self-loading were rifles introduced in 1926 and 1941. As rifles, they are especially well-suited to community defense in an emergency, as in the cases of community defense following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Along with AR-15 type rifles, the M1 rifles are the quintessential firearms of responsible citizenship, precisely the type of firearms which civic responsibility organizations such as the Appleseed Project teach people how to use. 
As the Gateway Pundit puts it,  It Begins... Obama Bans Gun Sales

Yet another reason to vote the leftwingnuts out of office in November and to vote for "The End of an Error" in 2012.
