Default Importing ivory

This has been discussed a number of times, but it is very important.
The link does not tell how expensive is was, but Manuscher had also offended the law, which was registreted - not very good for a banker as he writes - this was in 2003.
So if you buy anything with ivory - ask the seller to get a CITES certificate, or dont buy the weapon.
Since 2003 the different countries have focused more on CITES, so dont try to save the money for a certificate.

Exclamation Copied from the Swap Forum sticky

Members are advised to review legal restrictions applying to their jurisdiction when offering or acquiring items that incorporate such materials as ivory or rhino horn.

At the US national level, here is a brief review of restrictions to import, export and interstate trade: Can I Sell It?

Further analysis of state level restrictions may be found at: Understanding Ivory Lay

In my personal opinion, CITES was very poorly implemented by the US and the rash of recent laws and regulations concerning such trade of antiques within the US are very unlikely to serve the legitimate purpose of saving any wildlife. But, if you are caught violating any of these laws, the governments can and will hurt you.

Thank you Lee.
Somehow I have a feeling that some members does not take this very serious - but it is very serious.
I agree with Lee, that the law is not what it should have been - but it is there.
