Obama's latest executive orders highlight need for serious push on H.R. 2247

As I previously posted, Jugears has taken it upon himself to bar re-importation of US-made weapons or lent to foreign governments - like the millions of Garands and Springields shipped to England and other allies during WWII.

His ventriloquist puppet Joe Biden tells us this is because modern military weapons have no place in American citizen's hands. As if "modern" (select fire" weapons could be sold to us under any circumstances since 1986:
Last Thursday, the Obama administration announced two new executive orders--two new infringements on that which shall not be infringed, without even bothering with the effort of hiding its dirty work behind the thin facade of Constitutional legitimacy that Congressional approval would have lent it. One of the orders, today's topic, will ban the re-importation of decades-old rifles, once provided to our allies, for whom they provided honorable service, but long ago replaced by far more modern firearms in every military on Earth, for sale on the domestic civilian market. From Fox News:
One new policy will end a government practice that lets military weapons, sold or donated by the U.S. to allies, be reimported into the U.S. by private entities. The White House said the U.S. has approved 250,000 of those guns to be reimported since 2005; under the new policy, only museums and a few other entities like the government will be eligible to reimport military-grade firearms.
He is also investigating "trusts" used by collectors of NFA weapons - and this one seems to be friendly fire:

NFA firearms collectors group initiated ATF gun trust rule change

The Obama administration’s proposed regulatory amendment regarding background checks for principal officers of gun trusts will still require a chief law enforcement officer sign-off, and the rule change itself was initiated by a petition from a group representing National Firearms Act gun collectors. That information comes from a draft Department of Justice notice made public this morning by firearms industry consulting attorney Joshua Prince.
 One of the biggest problems facing us who want to return America to the rule of Constitutional law is that so many people who should by all logic be foursquare with us are willing to sell out other groups for some illusory and usually very temporary exemption from tyranny.
