Why Trump Easing Gun Export Rules Is Good For American Gun Owners

Postby Pawpaw » Fri Sep 22, 2017 9:48 am

Four senior U.S. officials told Reuters the rule change would shift oversight of commercial arms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department — giving American manufacturers more leeway to sell guns internationally, creating more jobs stateside and adhering to the president’s “Buy American” policy platform.

“Commerce wants more exports to help reduce the trade deficit. And State wants to stop things because it sees (arms) proliferation as inherently bad,” one of the officials, who spoke on a condition of anonymity, told Reuters. “We want to make a decision that prioritizes what’s more important. This will allow us to get in the (small arms sales) game for the first time ever.”

This is a good start. The next step needs to be lifting any federal restrictions on the import or civilian ownership of all weapons that are legal for U.S. law enforcement agencies to possess.
