Bet you didn’t know what’s hidden in The Gun Control Act of 1968.
The Treasury Secretary is vested with the right to ban importation of any firearm he finds “does not have a sporting purpose.”
While this authority is “currently” delegated to the BATFE, it doesn’t have to remain delegated. In fact, there is nothing legislative about that delegation to the best of my knowledge, which means it can be revoked by pure fiat.
Jack Lew, the person most-likely to be nominated to replace Geithner, is Obama’s current Chief of Staff. As such it must be presumed that he will do whatever Obama wants, within the limit of his statutory authority.
And that authority includes the ability to ban the import of any gun.
TIME TO PANIC!
