Looks like an M1A1, a Gew 98, some other military Mauser, an MP40?, and I don鈥檛 know what that revolving carbine is but it looks really cool. Too bad. To a liberal anything that goes bang that is not operated by their own police or military is a hateful tool of oppression and violence that must be eradicated from the earth.

Sadly this is an all too common fate for these pieces of history:cry::cry:
In particular in Europe since they have extremely strict gun laws that result in them either being completely destroyed, or turned into chunks of steel effectively to render them Inert instead of just doing a more sensible thing and exporting them to other places with less strict gun laws and a wide variety of collectors willing to pay for them :/

That's not the mind set. They believe they know what's best for all people and their cultures. We must be looked after and taken care of. We're not capable of surviving with out "Their" assistance.

The destruction of history is the worst part of it. If the sayings are true...

(Lazy copy/paste)
History is not the past but a map of the past, drawn from a particular point of view, to be useful to the modern traveler.鈥

History is the story of events, with praise or blame.鈥

History is the study of all the world's crime.

History is who we are and why we are the way we are.

These are some dark times.

Not sure if it's possible, but why aren't people turning in just the bare receivers and keeping everything else?

Wonder if it needs to be a functioning firearm?

Didn't Australia make it possible to plug the barrel and make the firearm non-functional, instead of turning it in?

There was an article in the Garand Collectors Assn magazine a while ago about a guy from England that collected M1 Garands. They all were modified to the point where they were non-functioning, and couldn't be made useable again in any reasonable manner.

Just sad.
