      But I hope I am not.  I know there will be headlines tomorrow trumpeting that Obama is ending the CMP by executive order...but I don't think that is true.  As you pointed out, he CMP is over 100 years old and was established by Congress...I don't think an executive order can end their mission.  The CMP is not technically an importer (the Army receives the firearms and then releases them to the CMP) nor are they considered a "private entity."  I don't think the administration has explained itself very well here and that oversight will lead to incredible headaches.  The collector community will be up in arms and the NRA will do everything they can to confuse this topic with misinformation.

      The sequester is the new Republican immigration reform plan. Make things so bad here in the US that no one will want to live here.
