Yesterday, President Obama issued Executive Order 13662 which bans importation of any Kalashnikov Concern products which would include the popular AK-47, any parts or accessories, and Saiga rifles and shotguns.
This order prohibits the importation or sale of any product that Kalashnivkov Concern has any interest in. This means the supply of products and parts for AK-47s and Saiga firearms has disappeared. Dealers will not be able to find new guns and as always once the supply line has stopped the price of existing guns will skyrocket.
According to Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), “If a U.S. person is in possession of a Kalashnikov Concern product that was bought and fully paid for prior to the date of designation (i.e., no payment remains due to Kalashnikov Concern), then that product is not blocked and OFAC sanctions would not prohibit the U.S. person from keeping or selling the product in the secondary market, so long as Kalashnikov Concern has no interest in the transaction.”
So the bottom line is we now have gun control by executive order. Under the guise of punishing Russia, Obama has found a way to ban a popular gun. There is no law, no appeal, no representation, it is simply ordered by our new king.
And the bastard Obama (yes, he is technically a bastard) will get away with it as Congress and the Courts are bought, paid for and blackmailed.
