The House of Representatives has approved Congressman Mike D. Rogers’ to the National Defense Authorization Act, which—if accepted in the Senate—could make it possible for Americans who meet to purchase a military surplus handgun from the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
As NRA High Power and CMP Service Rifle competitors know, the CMP is authorized under federal law to sell surplus rifles and ammunition to U.S. citizens of age, who belong to shooting clubs affiliated with the program, after passing a background check, and satisfying all federal and state laws. Representative Rogers’ amendment would simply extend the authorization to include other firearms. For example, allowing the Army to provide the program with 100,000 M1911 .45 caliber pistols. This would benefit the Army, the CMP and taxpayers alike.This administration wants every citizen to be disarmed. You can not rule over a armed populace. Obama wants to be king, that's why he wants more gun control. These 1911's are from WWII and earlier. They even comply with New York's SAFE act. These aren't the criminals first choice. This is the first handgun I ever shot. 5 rounds at a 15 yard target so they could put in my records that I had shot the 45.
Even Huffandpuff got in on the fear mongering. Spouting all of their GUNS are scary crap.
Thanks to Mike V.
