The tennis match that is the Korean M1 Garand saga has just had another point scored by the pro liberty side. H.R. 6240 has been introduced by Representative Cynthia Lummins R-WY.

The bill will amend the Arms Export Control Act in such a way that the State Department or Department of Defense will have no say in regards to certain curio and relic eligible firearms. The importer will not have to seek a permission from either entity to import these certain firearms.

A quote from Rep. Lummins,

“The State Department does not have the authority to deny legal firearms to law-abiding citizens. These firearms have historical value, are legal, and their importation is already highly regulated by the Justice Department. There is no basis for State Department involvement. This is not about diplomacy or foreign policy — this is a domestic issue and a Second Amendment issue.”

It would be a crime to see these beautiful pieces of history destroyed. They need to come home where they belong...
