1. That was import only

It does not look like he can ban them or magazines with an EO

The Pres hasn't yet said if he'll do doodly-squat, and the wingnuts are flapping away. Sheesh.

8. Follow the link to another link within it

A good article that places Bush's order in context, and explains why he took that action.

4. Bush was a white guy

White guys can do that sort of thing and the GOP eats it up. Then blames Clinton.

9. He banned the importation of some and notice that Bush 1 wasn't reelected either.

The gun guys on the right hated him for taxes and guns.

Plus this was a gift to domestically made rifles because they weren't banned -- only imported ones.
