Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Several weeks ago, GOA alerted you about the State Department’s proposed arms control regulations — a rewrite which has been widely cited as an attempt to control gun-related speech on the Internet.

GOA believes that there is a real reason to be concerned about the implications of these regulations for gun-related Internet speech.

GOA has prepared comments for the State Department in opposition to these regulations — comments that will be posted on the internet later.

But you can now see a detailed analysis of the regs by GOA’s Legislative Counsel here.

Bottom line: These proposed regulations would define an arms “export” — which would require State Department permission and substantial fee — to potentially include any gun-related communication on the Internet or social media.

With this final keystone in place, the Obama administration would have the regulatory framework to comprehensively regulate gun-related speech in cyberspace, to whatever extent it desires.

And those who violate this restriction on Internet “speech” are in danger of facing decades in prison (up to 20 years) and massive fines (up to $1 million).

It is imperative that Americans rise up in opposition to it. We’ve backed the President down before so that he’s pulled proposed regulations. (Remember the proposed ban on M855 ammo?)

But if the President persists and does not withdraw these regulations — despite the outpouring of opposition from gun owners around the nation — then we’ll work through the Congress to repeal/defund them on the annual funding bill.

There’s a lot of work still to be done. Please stay tuned … and take action!

ACTION: If you haven’t done so already, please write the State Department by going here. Tell them that you oppose the proposed arms control regulations. You can see a proposed letter here.

When I clicked on the link to write to the State Department, it said document was no longer available for comment. What’s up with that?


Is this why it takes Ammoland posts longer than usual to load? People need to know about what guns are “lemons” just like they need to know what politicians are “lemons” too. Until recently the Internet did a pretty good job identifying both. Now I don’t know. Is this what they meant by FCC “net neutrality”?


As long as we have freedom of speech there is never going to be a widespread acceptance of gun control measures. So first they have to quell freedom of speech so they can dominate the air waves with their propaganda.


eFF that antichrist müslim!


Too late, the government site is already closed to comments as of 8-4-2015.

The Chicago bath house potus has buried the Founder’s Republic ! Instead of a wake or funeral. WE THE PEOPLE ,need to take up arms ,and take America back. The Founder’s expect nothing less. We are worse of than the 3% , who had no choice , but to fire the shot heard around the world. Take off the rose colored glasses and realize the District of Criminals ,all need a length of rope ,and 534 stout trees. The Republic is a denuded corpse.


How about Obama stops arming terrorists. 400 stinger missiles sold to Qatar , resold to Taliban . Downed a Chinook helicopter July 25 2012 , Missile serial number was from 2010 CIA transfer to Qatar.
