Firearms Industry & They Call This “Completely Unregulated”?

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- With regard to firearms manufacture and sales . . .

Name another consumer product where the manufacturer must get the permission of the federal government before it can begin making the product;

  • where this manufacturer must be licensed by the federal government;
  • where every single item produced must be accounted for, at every step of manufacture, storage, shipping, distribution, and sale;
  • where every single store selling the product must seek permission from the federal government to sell the product;
  • where every single store wanting to sell the product must be licensed to sell the product;
  • where every single store wanting to sell the product must keep written records of every single item sold, under penalty of a felony conviction;
  • where every purchase of this consumer product must be approved by the Federal Bureau of Investigation;
  • where theft of this consumer product from the store constitutes a federal felony;
  • where the sale of the product is strictly limited by age and background of the purchaser;
  • and where (by the way) all product liability and negligence laws apply (why does everyone keep forgetting this?).

And that is what the gun confiscation forces call a “completely unregulated industry.

A picture of the United third world display in front of their building in N.Y. I hate to see that despicable assault on our founding principles located on our soil. It is there to say kiss my a$$ Americans. Throw them off our soil, they don’t have enough sense to be here. Most are scum.

They are all one world tyranny scum, except, of course, our beautiful ambassador, Nikki Hailey. Kick the u.n. the hell out of the U.S. and get the U.S. the hell out of the u.n.! Today.

Almost all of those apply to products which are considered drugs.

But no one calls the drug industry “unregulated”, either. That’s the point of the article…

If they can’t strangle the Second Amendment, they’ll try to starve it.

The Second Amendment haters seem to be liars and thieves. How could this be?
