    It was just Uncovered in the Arms Treaty between the U.S. and Russia that all Imports of Mosin Nagant Rifles are Now banned and No further shipments will be allowed to enter the Country. This comes from a Push By the U.N. to limit small arms distribution to private citizens which was agreed to By President Obama and Russian President Putin.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton applauded the decision...
    Hillary was quoted saying " These High power rifles have no place in our society today and the fireball produced by these rifles could be used By kooks to start fires that cause property Damage and firing bullets that can travel 5 miles are too dangerous for the private sector to possess...Here is the Link.http://www.gunbanobama.com/

    It's no joke though when you read about all those proposals. The UN would rather all surplus arms & ammunition (especially 7.62x54r) is destroyed than sell it to responsible(???!!) shooters.

    Better buy your reloading gear now!!

    Sad part is, it's one of the things that very well may come true if they DO sign the UN Small Weapons legislation.

    Y'all actually need to watch this carefully...it's been going on for awhile.
