Coal production is gradually leaving Appalachia — having already extracted much of the region’s natural wealth.
On Wednesday, Barack Obama used his powerful pen to effectively ban AK-47s, and other Kalashnikov Russian-made imports, indefinitely. This will include the import of parts and accessories so it affects current owners as well as those looking to make a new purchase. Under Executive Order 13662
holy shit, he’s grabbin guns.
Who the fuck needs an AK-47 in America?
Does anyone reblogging this actually click the link and read the Order? It’s the sanctions order against Russia for meddling in Ukraine. Are you really stupid enough to think this is Obama’s way of banning assault rifles?
Yes, it incidentally bans Kalashnikov-made AKs from being shipped into the United States. For now. But as Mother Jones has noted, they can still be freely sold, and this of course has no impact on any other assault rifle or an AK knockoff from any other source!
The new sanctions cut off the supply of AK-47s from the factory source, but gun stores with an old inventory and gun owners with one to spare are free to go about their business as before. The only caveat is that Kalashnikov can’t make any money off the deal.
Also, no one should need a presidential decree to boycott Kalashnikov, which is a state-owned company in fucking Russia that profits off indiscriminate sales to horrific warlords and dictators the world over, lining the pockets of Russian oligarchs. I mean wake the fuck up!
Look, I’m against most new gun-control measures, but the utter idiocy of so many people in that camp make me embarrassed to admit I’m on their side.
