Under the Guise of Punishing Russia, Biden Instead Hurts U.S Gun Owners Banning Ammo

223 Ammunition Banned
Under the Guise of Punishing Russia, Biden Instead Hurts U.S Gun Owners Banning Ammo

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun Owners of America is aware of the Biden State Department’s Notice [of new sanctions] that “[n]ew and pending permit applications for the permanent importation of firearms and ammunition manufactured or located in Russia will be subject to a policy of denial.”

We recognize the devastating implications these sanctions would have on individual gun owners amidst a national ammunition shortage. We are currently exploring administrative, congressional, and legal avenues to respond to these new sanctions.

Once again, the Biden Administrations’ actions are misplaced. Ending imports by licensed importers will not stop drug dealers, murderers, and other assorted street criminals.

It will, however, harm legitimate US businesses while driving up the cost of other ammunition due to more buyers chasing a smaller supply.  It is clear to us that the intention is not to harm Russia but rather to hinder the acquisition of firearms and ammunition by American citizens.

Yup, a firearm without ammo is a stick or a brick etc. Now, the “cheep” Russian ammo and arms are banned. That has always been their plan. Remember what obama bin laden did to ammo prices when it was president? 5.5 BILLION rounds of 40 S&W to the department of defense, the i.r.s. etc. Why would the i r s need to be armed? That is enough ammo to prosecute the Iraki war for 20+ years all by itself. It had the e.p.a. close down the last lead smelting plant in the U.S. That alone caused the price for bullets… Read more »

“Republican” GHW Bush banned 43 “assault weapon” imports in 1989, including the G3. Hard to forget the treason inside our own tent (Bush, Coors-Heritage, NRA, Ruger-Sanetti-SAAMI-NSSF) that led immediately to the CA & NJ bans, then the natl ban: “This is a bonus to domestic companies that can raise prices now. They won’t be faced with cheaper imports, and their demand will go up.” -Rep “Pete” Stark (D-CA) “Stark applauded Bush for ‘having the guts to stand up to the NRA’ but said he must take a similar stand against domestic weapons. If US-made assault rifles were subjected to the… Read more »

True but that was with the FedGov pushing US arms production. Now the federales scheme to destroy it.

But it seems doubtful this will this prop up or push up ammo prices for long, to the extent other countries’ ammo can substitute for Russian ammo. Russian ammo should sell in other countries slightly cheaper than it would’ve here, freeing up non-Russian ammo supply to the USA. Basic micro…Unless there are factors of which I’m unaware.

This move has already pushed up ALL 7.62×39 and 7.62×54 ammo and depleted many stores in the U.S.

Not surprising. Is Russia the only supplier of 7.62×39 & 7.62×54? They surely don’t have exclusive rights do they?

Permits needed to import ammo but Joe has opened the southern border to a unrestricted supply of meth and fentanyl. You are a complete idiot Biden ! Guns and ammo bad , deadly drugs OK I guess in Joe’s eyes .
