Made in America: Banned in America

The Korea Times reports that the U.S. government is blocking the re-importation of a large number of old M1 Garand and carbine rifles. According to a Korean official:
“The U.S. insisted that imports of the aging rifles could cause problems such as firearm accidents. It was also worried the weapons could be smuggled to terrorists, gangs or other people with bad intentions.”
Oh, sure... it's not that you're a bunch of America-hating, gun-grabbing scum, with a hard-on for taking people's freedom away, then?

Aye. The terrorists weapon of choice, this seasons "black", the M1 Garand.

Fucking twats.

HAY! I have a job lot of Prussian 1807, and Brown Bess muskets to sell. Think any terrorist groups may snap them up? I mean HEL! They even have the FLINTS fitted!

Well, considering the current U.S. government definition of 'suspected terrorist' is anyone who owns a gun, or a copy of the constitution, or a discerning mind, and flint is listed as a WMD, you may have difficulty getting them through border control (unless, of course, you take them through the southern border in the back of a Mexican truck).
