A State Department spokesman said the administration's decision was based on concerns that the guns could fall into the wrong hands.
"The transfer of such a large number of weapons -- 87,310 M1 Garands and 770,160 M1 Carbines -- could potentially be exploited by individuals seeking firearms for illicit purposes," the spokesman told FoxNews.com.
For anyone that says this administration is not anti-gun, you are wrong. They have just failed because the average person in America does not believe that gun control does anything to stop crime. Most understand that it's not about guns, it's about control!
