When Boston sought permission to have a single prototype locomotive built in Spain for a rapid transit project, Idaho Senator Mike Crapo opposed the import deal under the “Buy America Act.”
Today that same “Buy America” patriotic Senator is co-sponsoring “The Collectible Firearms Protection Act” which would allow import of military rifles from South Korea…perhaps it should be called the “rifle reclamation act” since the guns were probably made in the USA originally and shipped to Korea.
From the Crapo press release:
“Crapo was one of 18 Senators who wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in early October, asking the State Department to reverse the decision to ban the sale of surplus M1 Carbine and Garand rifles from South Korea to qualified buyers in the U.S. The Obama administration initially approved the sale, only to see the State Department block the sale.”
