Would the expiration of the AW ban affect imports?

If the AW ban sunsets, would that gun importation at all? It is my understanding it will not, since the ban on imported guns is much more draconian. I know ones with enough US parts could be in "AW" configuration.

Nope, import ban would still be in effect, due to it being solely up to the ATF to determine what is "sporting" and what isnt. They play pretty dirty too, they got away with asking big game-type professional hunters in Alaska and the like if they recommended Uzis (along with other guns like the HK91, 93 and 94) for their clients, and then saying there was no "sporting" need for Uzis as no big game hunters recommended them...
