INCH by INCH: Obama Issues Executive Order That May Drive Gunsmiths Out of Business – The Truth About Guns

President Obama has the ability to issue “executive orders” that direct the agencies controlled by the Office of the President to change the way they operate. Government agencies have a large amount of leeway when it comes to the interpretation of the law and how it applies to the American people, and these executive orders are intended to allow the president to specifically direct those agencies in whatever manner he sees fit.

Last Friday President Obama issued one such order which changed the definition of a “manufacturer” under the ITAR treaty regulations, a change which now means anyone who so much as threads a barrel on a firearm needs to pay thousands more dollars in fees and is subject to further registration. From the NRA:

By way of background, the AECA and ITAR concern rules by which military materiel is exported from, and imported to, the United States. The so-called “defense articles” governed by the AECA/ITAR are compiled in what is known as the U.S. Munitions List and include some, but not all, firearms and ammunition, as well as their parts and components.

Thus, for purposes of the regime, a spring or floorplate from the magazine of a controlled firearm is subject to the same regulatory framework as the firearm itself.

The AECA/ITAR require anybody who engages in the business of “manufacturing” a defense article to register with DDTC and pay a registration fee that for new applicants is currently $2,250 per year. These requirements apply, even if the business does not, and does not intend to, export any defense article.

Moreover, under ITAR, “only one occasion of manufacturing … a defense article” is necessary for a commercial entity to be considered “engaged in the business” and therefore subject to the regime’s requirements.

The issue is the definition of “manufacturer.” Previously, only machine shops who actually produce a firearm from scratch were required to register as a “manufacturer.” Local gun shops with a shade-tree gunsmith happily threading barrels and trueing up receivers were exempt, since they didn’t actually make anything new.

This new interpretation of the ITAR regulations has changed all that, and anyone who so much as threads a barrel now must further register with the Federal government as a “manufacturer” and pay an additional $2,250 in registration fees. That might not seem like a lot to a big shop, but for the small mom-and-pop gunsmiths this could be enough to put them out of business.

The NRA’s opinion on the matter is predictable:

DDTC’s move appears aimed at expanding the regulatory sweep of the AECA/ITAR and culling many smaller commercial gunsmithing operations that do not have the means to pay the annual registration fee or the sophistication to negotiate DDTC’s confusing maze of bureaucracy. Like ATF’s early “guidance” this year on theGCA’s licensing requirement for firearm “dealers,” it is also likely to have a significant chilling effect on activity that would not even be considered regulated.   

The administration’s latest move serves as a timely reminder of how the politicized and arrogant abuse of executive power can be used to suppress Second Amendment rights and curtail lawful firearm-related commerce. That lesson should not be forgotten when voters go to the polls this November.

Gun Groups Push to Make Silencers Easier to Purchase, Own

Gun rights advocates hope to remove a number of federal restrictions related to the purchase and ownership of firearm silencers.

The Hearing Protection Act would exempt silencers from the National Firearms Act of 1934, a law that also regulates fully automatic weapons. Under the current law, individuals who wish to purchase a silencer must pay a $200 tax and wait several months for the ATF to process paperwork on the item before bringing the accessory home. The process is more complex than buying a firearm.

A coalition of gun rights groups, including the NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, are making the Hearing Protection Act a top priority for 2016. SilencerCo, a leading silencer manufacturer, is also at the center of the effort.

“It could be a really big deal for the gun industry,” said SilencerCo CEO Joshua Waldron, who also holds positions at the American Suppressor Association and NRA. “We’re gaining momentum. The best part about this bill is we didn’t understand how much support we would get from all of the organizations: NSSF, NRA, Congressional Sportsman Foundation. It’s really a strong push because in essence everybody understands what suppressors really are.”

“They make hunting and shooting safer. That’s an issue that everybody can get behind on both sides of the table.”

Waldron said his company was heavily involved in crafting the bill and has advocated on its behalf through advertising and email-writing campaigns. “We helped the American Suppressor Association in drafting the language for the bill,” Waldron said. “From our website alone we’ve generated 60,000 letters sent to lawmakers in support of HPA.”

Rep. Matt Salmon (R., Ariz.), an avid shooter who uses silencers and introduced the Hearing Protection Act, said he has seen a groundswell of support from his colleagues.

“It’s been very positive,” Salmon said. “We already have 55 co-sponsors. We have Democrats on the bill as well. It’s actually picking up a lot of steam. Suppressors really should’ve never been placed in the act in the first place. I think it was a mistake in the first place. There’s no rationale. It’s not the same as fully automatic weapon. To me it’s a great training tool.”

Salmon and Waldron both said silencers are not used in crime.

“There have been zero legally-owned suppressors used in crimes since the ‘30s,” Waldron claimed.

Salmon said that is why there has been little organized resistance to the bill.

“They’re just not used in crimes,” Salmon said. “People are buying them for training purposes and because they are concerned about the noise levels. Most people that have any level of opposition to it are operating on urban legend instead of reality. They’re the kind of people that get all of their knowledge from watching The Bourne Identity.”

“I think once people know exactly what they do and the benefits they have, the opposition just kinda withers up because it’s not rational,” Salmon said.

Two leading gun control groups, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and Everytown for Gun Safety, did not respond to a request for comment about the bill, but gun control advocates have opposed silencers in the past.

“A silencer is useful to assassins but clearly has no purpose for sportsmen. Silencers are also illegal,” a 2008 report by the Brady Center said.

Many gun advocates view silencers as safety devices because they dampen the sound of gunshots so they do not damage shooters’ hearing. Some hunters like silencers because they prefer not to use hearing protection that blocks out the sound of approaching game. This results in hearing loss for many hunters, including Salmon.

Waldron said that current restrictions on silencers do not make sense. He pointed out that silencers and car mufflers are essentially the same technology, invented by the same man.

“It’s ridiculous when you think about it,” Waldron said. “Can you imagine if you had to pay a $200 tax for your muffler for your car and had to wait six months before you could go pick up your car from the lot? It doesn’t make any logical sense.”

Advocates of the bill said it is likely to pass the House and Senate easily this year, but will face a potential veto from President Obama.

Gun buys, applications likely to surge as pols push gun control laws | Fox News

As President Obama and top Democrats push again for widespread gun control in the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, statistics suggest that the push will only serve to increase the number of guns being bought – with gun store owners telling FoxNews.com that business is booming.

“We are so busy right now that I don’t know if I’m coming or going,” Derrick Meyers of River City Firearms in Louisville, Ky. told FoxNews.com.

“Yes, there has most definitely been an increase in gun sales,” said David Wiley of Wiley’s Gun Shop in Wills Point, Texas. “I expect it to continue from now until the next presidential election.”

The surge in demand for guns comes not only due to the fear that arises after a mass shooting, owners say, but amid a fresh push for gun control from mainly Democratic politicians at local and national levels.

On Thursday, in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting, Obama called again on legislatures to pass legislation to make it harder for violent individuals to get a hold of weapons. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday that there is a way to pass gun control that doesn’t infringe on the rights of law-abiding Americans.  But Second Amendment advocates and Republican politicians aren’t convinced. Apparently, neither are a number of Americans, who appear to be buying up guns at record levels.

While there is no official data on gun sales, numbers on the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) can be used as an indicator of an increase or decrease in sales – although a one-to-one correlation cannot be made between a background check and a sale.

The anecdotal evidence from store owners is backed up by the figures, which suggest recent mass shootings are followed by a strong push for gun control measures, the demand for guns spikes dramatically.

There have been 19.82 million checks so far through November this year, and it is on pace to break the record. Black Friday saw the most background checks — 185,345 — in a single day. While Black Friday frequently sees a high number of checks, this year’s Black Friday was unique in that it came in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris, and less than two months after the Oct. 1 shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, after which President Obama angrily called again for stricter restrictions on gun access.

“We do see increases after these kinds of events that cause people to be concerned about their own safety or because they fear legislation may pass either on a state or federal level that may limit their future access to firearms or ammunition,” Mike Bazinet, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, told FoxNews.com.

The most significant increase in background checks came after the Dec. 14, 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in which 20 children and six adults were killed. In the emotional aftermath of the shooting, the push for gun control measures was at its most aggressive and passionate.

“If the media really starts pushing gun control again, it’ll just be unreal what’s going to happen.”

– Derrick Meyers, owner of River City Firearms

Four of the top 10 days for background checks were in the days post-Newtown, while the highest week for background checks on record was between December 17 and 23 2012, where 953,613 checks were conducted – the first recorded week following the massacre. That December finished with 2.78 million background checks – the most for any month on record.

Meyers told FoxNews.com that during that time his normally significant stock almost ran out in his store.

“If the media really starts pushing gun control again, it’ll just be unreal what’s going to happen,” Meyers said.

The trend has been similar around other mass shootings that occured while President Obama was in office. After 13 people were killed in the Nov. 5, 2009 Fort Hood massacre, background checks rose 14.1 percent the next month.
According to the FBI, on Black Friday, more people had their backgrounds checked than any day on record

After the July 12, 2012 movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, checks increased 17.3 percent to 1.53 million in August, which was at the time by far the highest August on record.

Yet this was not always the case. After the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting in Blacksburg Va,, in which gunman Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people, background checks decreased 13.8% from the previous month, and would drop three consecutive months after the shooting.

After the Columbine shooting in 1999, background checks also decreased from the previous month, with the shooting apparently having no effect on background checks.

Gun store owners say the key to why recent shootings have boosted gun buying is due to the accompanying push for gun control.

“It depends on how much they’re all screaming about gun control,” Wiley said, adding that when politicians push Second Amendment restrictions, business can double or even triple.

However, Meyers said that he believes that right now, fear is the driving factor.

“Right this second, it’s the shootings themselves and people
are scared,” he said, but added that a push for gun control is also a key factor.

“Everytime the media puts out gun control, gun control, gun control, all that does is drive people into these stores.”

As calls for gun control increase, however, the environment may sour for the gun industry.

Democrats are increasingly vocal in their calls for stricter gun control, with President Obama staying focused on the issue and Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley united on the need for more gun control measures.

Polls show that the increased anti-gun rhetoric is having at least a slight effect on public attitudes toward guns. An October Gallup poll found that 55 percent of Americans want stricter gun laws, up from 44 percent in October 2009 – the year President Obama took office. However, a September Quinnipiac poll found that only 45 percent of voters support stricter gun laws.

Other polls consistently show widespread support, as high as 93 percent, for a federal law requiring universal background checks on all potential gun owners.

While the industry may be seeing a short-term spike in sales, owners and industry advocates fear that in the long-term this could have costs for business.

Mike Flick, owner of Crosshairs USA in Torrance, Calif. told FoxNews.com that already the level of regulations can make selling guns take a lot longer, and more expensive.

“The amount of documentation we must maintain on file and have available at any time for state and federal regulators to inspect us, it’s laborious and tedious and you have to maintain it. That’s overhead and that’s cost. So when you add additional layers to that – I’m not saying all of it is a bad idea, some of it Is a good idea – but now in California it seems more punitive than about public safety,” Flick said.

Other gun store owners in less regulated states shared Flick’s concern.

“Do I worry about it? Yes I do as [the government] could make it a lot harder to do business and I could go from selling 30-40 guns a day to one or two guns a day,” Meyers said. “But we knew that when we got into this business – it is dictated by the government.”

Renewed calls for gun control laws spur sales

AP STOLEN GUNS VIOLENCE A FILE USA MO

WASHINGTON — Renewed calls for more restrictive gun laws, following a succession of fatal shootings in the United States, immediately appear to be generating a boost for the gun industry.

Newly released August records show that the FBI posted 1.7 million background checks required of gun purchasers at federally licensed dealers, the highest number recorded in any August since gun checks began in 1998. The numbers follow new monthly highs for June (1.5 million) and July (1.6 million), a period which spans a series of deadly gun attacks — from Charleston to Roanoke — and proposals for additional firearm legislation.

While the FBI does not track actual gun sales, as multiple firearms can be included in a transaction by a single buyer, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s numbers are an indicator of a market upswing in the face of growing anxiety about access to guns.

“Whenever there is a call for gun control, sales increase,” said Larry Keane, general counsel for the firearm industry trade association National Shooting Sports Foundation. “Unfortunately, this is a pattern that repeats itself.”

The summer trend is not on par with the panic buying boom that followed the 2012 Newtown massacre, which jump-started state and federal campaigns for a host of new firearm measures. During the months that followed the Connecticut attack, which featured new calls for an assault weapons ban and expanded background checks, apprehensive gun buyers emptied the shelves of dealers across the country. Yet, the recent uptick represents a similar buying pattern that dates to the uneasy period before 1994 adoption of the assault weapons ban. (That ban expired in 2004.)

Virginia Del. Patrick Hope, a Democratic member of the state Assembly who proposed an expansion of background checks following last month’s shooting deaths of two journalists near Roanoke, said the stockpiling of weapons represented an “over-reaction.”

“We’re not at all threatening any one’s ability to get a gun,” Hope said. “What we’re talking about here is common sense legislation. I don’t think any one is threatened by background checks.”

In the recent Virginia shootings, an attack carried out on live television, gunman Vester Flanagan passed a background check prior to last month’s purchase of two Glock handguns, including the weapon used in the Aug. 26 assault in which reporter Alison Parker, 24, and Adam Ward, 27, were killed. A third person, a local chamber of commerce official, was wounded. Flanagan later used one of the weapons to kill himself.

Hope said his expanded background check proposal, supported by a petition containing 28,000 signatures, is aimed at the unchecked market of private firearm transactions, mostly over the Internet and at gun shows, that account for about 40% of firearm sales.

“I chose background checks, not because it would have prevented (the Virginia shooting) but because this would be easiest to pass,” Hope said. “We will not be able to prevent every single incident. We need to do something.”

But Keane said the legislative proposals commonly offered in the emotional wake of fatal shootings often do not account for specific circumstances leading up to the attacks.

“These things are being offered up before the person is even arrested or before (investigators) even know what happened,” Keane said. “For people concerned about their Second Amendment rights, the concern never goes away.”

Keane said the gun purchases prompted by calls for new restrictions are “certainly legitimate to the person exercising their fundamental civil liberties protected by the Second Amendment.”

“The concern that anti-gun politicians are seeking to infringe and restrict the right to keep and bear arms is very real and well-founded,” he said.

Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said there is risk during periods of increased sales when all purchases are not covered by background checks.

“When gun sales rise, more and more weapons find a set of dangerous hands to call home,” Gross said. “There are people in this country, people like felons, fugitives, and domestic abusers who we all agree simply should not have guns.”

 

Renewed calls for gun control laws spur sales.

Martin O’Malley: ‘Ban Sale Of Assault Weapons,’ Launch ‘National Gun Registry’

REUTERS/JONATHAN ERNST

On July 24, the day after John Russell Houser allegedly used a handgun to kill two people in Lafayette, Louisiana, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley called on Congress to ban “the sale of assault weapons” and “[establish] a national gun registry.”

He also said it is time to “[increase] inspections” on gun shops and mandate that gun owners lock up their guns in their homes.

Writing in The Boston Globe, O’Malley boasted of the gun controls he was able to pass while Governor:

In Maryland, we implemented some of the toughest measures in the nation to crack down on gun violence. The reforms we put in place included required licensing, fingerprinting, background checks, and safety training. We ensured that these requirements applied to all buyers, whether they were acquiring a gun from a dealer, a secondary sale, or as a private gift.

We took action to keep guns off the street and make them less deadly. We banned the sale of assault weapons and limited the size of magazines. And, if a firearm was lost or stolen, we required it to be reported immediately to law enforcement.

What a list: license requirements for firearm owners, mandated training, background checks, bans on assault weapons, and a ban on “high capacity” ammunition magazines.

O’Malley then suggested that the goals of Maryland at the time — when gun control was enacted — and the goals of the United States now should be one and the same.

Well, let’s see. How has gun control worked out for Marylanders? According to USA Today, not well. They report there were “43 homicides” in May of this year alone and a total of “116 homicides” in Baltimore through the first five months of the year.

To hedge his bets O’Malley points away from Maryland, pointing instead to the nation as a whole and claims there were 204 mass shootings “during the first 204 days of 2015.” That is a mass shooting a day.

How can Democrats claim a mass shooting a day? They list any shooting incident where at least two people are killed as a mass shooting. Thus, Adam Lanza’s heinous Sandy Hook attack, killing 26, was a mass shooting and Nidal Hasan’s 2009 Fort Hood attack, killing 13, was a mass shooting and John Russell Houser’s alleged July 23 attack on a Lafayette theater, killing two, was a mass shooting as well.

On January 5, 2014, Breitbart News reported that MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s Len Everett talked of how “mass shootings” are increasing every day. They also revealed that their new criteria for a mass shooting would be any shooting where two or more people were killed.
