Bill Would Protect M1 Garand Importation

posted on June 23, 2015

The National Rifle Association is backing a measure that would reverse a State Department decision blocking the importation of historic M1 Garand rifles and M1 carbines from South Korea. H.R. 2611, titled the "Collectible Firearms Protection Act," was introduced last week by U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo. 

According to NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the United States exported these firearms to South Korea at the onset of the Korean War in the 1950s. The M1 Garand and M1 carbine have become collector's items and are perfectly legal to manufacture in the United States and, like all firearm imports, they would be subject to the federal rules and regulations governing retail firearm sales.

Use Your Power!

Please contact your U.S. representative and urge him or her to support this legislation by calling (202) 224-3121 or using the "Write Your Lawmakers" tool on the NRA-ILA website.
