Let's Export AR-15s - A Proposed Trump Job Creating Plan

Last edited Sat Mar 3, 2018, 11:58 AM - Edit history (2)

Exclusive: Trump administration prepares to ease export rules for U.S. guns including assault weapons because US sales have slumped.

I THINK TWITTER NEEDS TO ALERT PARENTS AROUND THE WORLD so tweet #Eu #France #Canada well, you get the point.



Aides to President Donald Trump are completing a plan to shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department, four officials told Reuters....

...The move, part of a broader Trump administration overhaul of weapons export policy that the officials say is also nearing completion, comes at a time when U.S. gun makers could use the help.

Domestic gun sales have fallen significantly after soaring under President Barack Obama, when gun enthusiasts stockpiled weapons and ammunition out of fear that the government would tighten gun laws...

They do. Private equity firms own most of our national defense as well, private armies.

2. Send them to Russia

and also send lots of prescription opioids. No cash need be involved, could barter for Stolichnaya and mail order brides. What could go wrong?

6. Not AR-15s

https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/russians-their-guns-and-the-state-52720

Many types of weapons, such as pistols and revolvers, remain off-limits to the Russian public. When they were developed, gun ownership laws were designed to enable Russians to hunt.

The bureaucratic procedure to legally procure a gun is complicated.

Any Russian choosing to legally own a gun is initially limited to a single shotgun, which is subjet to a permit. That permit is only granted after a citizen undergoes background checks, investigations into their criminal history, neighborhood circumstances, mental health and invasive home inspections. They also submit to future snap inspections by police. Five years after receiving a shotgun permit, they can then buy a hunting rifle.
