NRA Files Comments in Support of Trump Administration’s Export Reform Effort

Fri, 07/13/2018 - 14:12
On Monday, the public comment period closed on a pair of rulemakings that could finally free American gun owners and small businesses from being trapped in a minefield of federal regulations designed for exporters of sophisticated military technology. As we mentioned earlier, the proposals are a win-win for both the domestic firearms industry and for national security. The NRA submitted formal comments to both rulemakings lauding the efforts and suggesting additional changes to help promote the agencies’ goal of “building a taller fence around a smaller yard.” The point is to more finely tune export controls to distinguish between items that provide critical military or intelligence advantages to the U.S. or are “inherently military” and items that, while having some military utility, are commonly available from places like RadioShack and Walmart.
