    It allegedly only applies to exports... I will be honest and admit undo not know all the details, but I don't think we need to get carried away just yet with panic...

    Aren't Glock parts made in Austria? They have to export them to get them here.

    That's the problem here. Most of the panic idiots, just see the words Obama and Guns and they go wild with the "he is taking them away" crap.

    The parts are manufactured in Austria and exported to Georgia for assembly and distribution. They aren't actually made in Georgia per se. IIRC.

    So it's true. Obama DID steal the Hurricane Machine from GW.

    Obama hates Gun People!

    Duh! It was broken after Katrina. Some idiot left it out during Katrina's surge. Once it was fixed, GW tried to keep it in Texas but the Media was onto him. He was forced to turn it over to Obama..

    you mean the multi million dollar gun corp will have to make the "complete" gun here adding jobs and money to the economey...

    and even if this law did stop gun companys from importing here,we are not hurting on US gun makers.

    Right, because companies always hire more people in the face of additional taxes and tariffs. More likely that they will slow production and/or exporting causing the gun prices to increase and laying off more people..

    Oh my gosh!!! Obama is banning guns!!!


    ..."We will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms," he said.

    U.S. officials have acknowledged privately that the treaty under discussion would have no effect on domestic gun sales and ownership because it would apply only to exports...

    Export to where? American civilians buy more guns than most third world countries. Hell, American civilians buy more guns than most first world countries.

    Where did the fnfal part of your screen name come from? Wasn't it an export???

    Don't most US gun manufactures export their weapons? So, yes it will affect US gun manufacturers and their sales...

    The reply was in reference to GLOCK exporting to the US. The poster I was replying to assumed that GLOCK would send those jobs over here and make more parts here and therefor more jobs would come into the US because of this new tax/tariff... Context my man.. Context...
