Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) recently introduced H.R. 2611, the “Collectible Firearms Protection Act.”

This bill would aim to reverse a State Department decision blocking the importation of wildly popular and historic M1 Garand rifles and M1 carbines from South Korea.

The United States exported these firearms to South Korea at the onset of the Korean War in the 1950s. The M1 Garand and M1 carbine have become collector's items and are perfectly legal to manufacture in the United States and, like all firearm imports, they would be subject to the federal rules and regulations governing retail firearm sales.

The State Department is using this decision as a political maneuver to deny law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.

NRA would like to thank Rep. Lummis for her steadfast support of the Second Amendment and the introduction of “the Collectible Firearms Protection Act.”

Please contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to support this legislation!

    Why shou;d it matter that the mentioned weapons are comming back from So. Korea, or purchased from dealers here? An M1 is an M! period and should not be illegal or banned in any way. The are US Military surplus firearms!!

    The rifles mentioned were manufactured in the US and therefore should be exempt anyway. Regardless of that, such bans are un-American, anti-American and amount to the same attempts of disarmament (howbeit incremental) by the same kind of corrupt minds of the British royalty (i.e., elites) that the US broke away from.

    We can thank 0bama and his minions for screwing the American people on all Second Amendment issues. This Chicago community organizer has worked tirelessly to destroy the American ethos, and controlling firearms is just one way of performing the coup de grace on our Constitutional rights.
