NSSF Hails Publication of Firearms Export Reform Rules
 
WASHINGTON — NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, applauds the Trump administration’s posting for public inspection the final rules that modernize the export regulations for sporting and commercial firearms and ammunition products. The formal publication of the final rule is scheduled for Jan. 23. The rules will be implemented 45 days after formal publication.
 
President Donald Trump’s administration successfully completed the long-promised modernization of the export control regulations that began more than eight years ago under the prior administration, but which was never completed due to domestic gun control reasons.
 
“This is a tremendous achievement for the firearms and ammunition industry. We salute the Trump administration for modernizing our nation’s outdated Cold War era export controls and putting American manufacturers on an even playing field with their foreign competitors,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President for Government Relations and Public Affairs and General Counsel. “This initiative will enable U.S. manufacturers to create more good-paying jobs in America while also helping to strengthen our national security.”
 
The rules issued today transfer export licensing of sporting and commercial firearms and ammunition products to the Commerce Department from the State Department. This change removes unnecessary and outdated regulations and allows the State to focus its export control resources on those items that give our warfighters a tactical advantage. It makes no sense to treat the commercial sale of hunting or target shooting rifles with the same level of scrutiny as nuclear weapons, tanks and fighter aircraft.
 
The new rules also eliminate a punitive annual $2,250 registration fee that gunsmiths and small companies who do not manufacture, nor export firearms or ammunition products were forced to pay.

This is very good news but more importantly, All should pay heed to the current state of affairs in Virginia. Governor Northam along with a democratic majority in the legislature is moving rapidly towards sweeping gun reform legislation. His ban on weapons at the state house is a blatant violation of Virginian's 1st and 2nd ammendment rights but the resistance has been futile so far. Pray for all those in Virginia as it may pave the way for other states to follow their lead on your gun rights!!!

How many gun owners did not bother to vote in the Mid Terms?   I know a couple that will not vote as they say they are all crooks and voting doesn't matter.   These are the people who will scream the loudest when their rights begin to disappear.   

My kids are in VA Beach and that area is very pro-gun due to the Military presence and retirees.   The Northern part of the state around DC however controls the sate politics.   VA is for sure worth watching and November 3, 2020 should be a wake up call for them, but I doubt they will get the message.

My favorite excuse, for not exercising their right to vote, is that they "Don't want to get called for Jury Duty"??? I'd like to have each and every one of them spend a day at Arlington National cemetary, policing the grounds, and trying to grasp the supreme sacrifices made to allow them their freedom of choice in ALL areas!!!

Many states now draw jury pools from the Drivers Licenses for just that very reason.  I have been called but always dismissed due to my background and current work for the courts.

I'm interested but want more information. Does this now mean I can buy a bolt carrier group for my. 22 AR15 or a firing pin for a Wingmaster?

By the way, you guys are not the only ones watching the VA situation. There is a GOA movement to attend a meeting on 20 January armed, against the weapons ban put in place the governor who says there is a threat from White Supremacists. The Pro 2a supporters are trying to drum up support as a big turn out will put the governor under pressure. In reality though I suspect that the turn out will be poor as gun owners tend to be splintered. I'm saddened to see your rights being infringed.
