• Trump Bypasses Congress to Open Up World Markets to U.S. Gun Makers



    By AWR Hawkins

    President Trump is ready to shift rules to allow American gun makers more leeway in selling arms and ammunition to foreign buyers.
    This would mean expanded markets for AR-15s and American made 5.56 and .223 ammunition.

    According to Reuters, aides to President Trump are finalizing a plan to shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department. And the shift in rules governing sales to foreign buyers can be accomplished without Congressional approval.

      EAR will apply rather than ITAR.

      Correct, but non-exporting 07FFLs were already required to register with ITAR even though they had no export event. I lack faith that they will make the correct decision that ITAR registration is no longer required because products are subject to EAR given past interpretation. The logic will be "How can you know that it is EAR with out being up to speed/date/trained on ITAR and proving that requires ITAR registration. How can you do a CJ on the product and rule EAR w/o know ITAR so you must be ITAR registered." See? I can make the bogus arguments for them on why ITAR registration tax collection is still required

      We need congress to explicitly state cases in which itar is not required. Congress needs to start pulling back power from these bureaucracies

      no, you and your money and your bases belongs to mAss.

      you'll probably be better off setting up a shack in Afganistan and ordering some good shit.

      Of course Trump does this but won't rescind the 1989 import ban or any of the other import bans that have been put in place by EO or admin fiat (like the AK barrel/kit ban from ATF) that he could legally rescind with a swipe of a pen. Because that's not jingoist or protectionist enough.
