The Obama administration has released a report that is ominious in its scope on assualt weapons. It appears as if the administration wants to have stricter gun control regulations for imported guns than existed under the federal assault weapon ban. The conclusion of this BATF report is problematic.

Obviously the Obama administration can't be trusted with determining what a "true" sporting gun is.


The purpose of section 925(d)(3) is to provide a limited exception to the general prohibition on the importation of firearms without placing “any undue or unnecessary Federal restrictions or burdens on law-abiding citizens with respect to the acquisition, possession, or use of firearms.”51 Our determinations will in no way preclude the importation of true sporting shotguns. While it will certainly prevent the importation of certain shotguns, we believe that those shotguns containing the enumerated features cannot be fairly characterized as “sporting” shotguns under the statute. Therefore, it is the recommendation of the working group that shotguns with any of the characteristics or features listed above not be authorized for importation.
