U.S. allows import of 86,000 M1 rifles from Korea (http://www.nraila.org/News/Read/InTheNews.aspx?ID=15966)
The federal government has approved for importation some 86,000 M1 rifles from South Korea. The move comes after hard work by the NRA-ILA and its allies in Congress, Sen. John Tester (D-Mont.) and Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.).

Apparently the M1 carbines are still blocked from import because of the detachable mags.
At least the state dept has their heads halfway out of Hillary's azz
also, it's still not "confirmed" according to the NRA-ILA source:
A senior defense ministry official, however, raised the possibility that the U.S. government may cancel the plan to allow the purchase the M1s, saying Seoul has yet to finalize negotiations with Washington.
``We have yet to receive confirmation from the United States over our proposal,” he said. “The U.S. government may change its position at the last minute due to political considerations.”

The Obama administration blocked the purchase of 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines in 2010, saying the American-made antique rifles could “potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes.”
I guess the oil from the Keystone pipeline could be used to drive a getaway car :rolleyes:
