NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Due to outdated U.S. export regulations, the firearms and ammunition industry and many other U.S. industries that export products are at a severe disadvantage when competing with foreign companies.
Now some in Congress are going to try and stop export control reforms that are critical to helping U.S. companies compete globally so we can restore and grow the U.S. economy and create more jobs right here at home.
That’s why the firearms industry fully supports the ongoing effort to update and modernize our export controls.
Some in Congress are trying to derail those much-needed reforms by offering amendments to National Defense Authorization Bill (H.R. 4310). We urgently need you to call your member of Congress and urge them to oppose any amendments to the National Defense Authorization Bill that would undermine the Export Control Reform initiative.
Modernizing our export controls will help to create jobs here in America, make American companies more globally competitive, increase U.S. national security and allow America to better strengthen and support its key allies.
A strong and growing firearms industry helps protect the Second Amendment. Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to reach your Representative.
