Weird. What Does It Mean?

10/27/23 Reuters:
"WASHINGTON, Oct 27 (Reuters) -The U.S. has stopped issuing export licenses for most civilian firearms and ammunition for 90 days for all non-governmental users, the Commerce Department said on Friday, citing national security and foreign policy interests.

"The Commerce Department did not provide further details for the pause, which also includes shotguns and optical sights, but said an urgent review will assess the "risk of firearms being diverted to entities or activities that promote regional instability, violate human rights, or fuel criminal activities."

This is curious. I do not see how it furthers disarming Americans. It might even reduce prices for guns and ammo because we will not be competing with the rest of the world.

  1. Not much! How many firearms are legally exported from the US, not involving the government?
