I heard the oposit that they would be for sale. I thought the import was blocked at first then they let them in. Why would they import them from the lend lease and then chop them up?

Other than despising politics in general, my comment is if Obama is done, who is the replacement?

None of the wannabe's have shown me anything that would make me feel that if they were in office, that our Second Amendment rights would be secure, other than Ron Paul.

Certainly not Mitt and certainly not Newt. I'm in a 'no faith' position with Santorum.

For the life of me, I can't understand why the highest ranking office in the country attracts those with the most baggage.

There has to be someone out there qualified to lead that respects the Constitution and the will of the people.

I fear, they way the Republican run up to nomination is going, Obama will secure another term and that could be devistating not only to the country, but to owners of firearms, in general.

Very uncertain times right now.

Ron is the only choice for gun owners in this one

Thought the M1s were Korean property now and that they would be selling them. I don't believe Obama can just destroy them. Wouldn't put it past him if given the opportunity but i didn't think that was the case here. I sure hope not i would like to have one. The other thing is that the Obama administration might seize them and hand them to drug dealers.

The issue is the rifles are on loan from the United States through the Lend Lease program and Korea doesn't want to just return them they want to sell the U.S. property back to the U.S.

Collectors are also afraid that they would dilute the market and reduce the value of their rifles.

Last I heard was Korea was keeping them but I haven't seen any recent updates.

Years ago the same man sold hundreds of AK 47s and .50bmgs to the Mexican drug gangs. And lost track of them shortly after the sale
