In today’s “paper-thin excuse to make life hard for gun owners” news …
The Biden administration just announced that it intends to ban imported Russian ammunition and firearms on Friday. If you’re not familiar with how the news cycle works, here’s a tip: The information that they want buried goes out on Friday night. The idea is that only a few people really watch the news over the weekend, so by Monday it will have been largely forgotten. But here at Guns & Gadgets Daily, we want to make sure that Friday afternoon news is still there on Monday morning. (You’re welcome, Joe!)
What is the paper-thin excuse?
According to the Biden Administration, the upcoming ban on imported Russian guns and ammunition is a reprisal for the poisoning of a Russian dissident back in August 2020. We’re not saying that it’s okay for Russia to go around poisoning dissidents, but we do have a sneaking suspicion that other countries that regularly engage in political assassination will not be subject to any such sanctions.
Here’s what we know:
The ban goes into effect on September 7 of this year, in just about three weeks. Once that happens, the businesses that import Russian ammunition will only be able to sell the stock they have now, and won’t be able to bring in any more. Essentially, what this ruling means is that inexpensive steel-cased ammunition from the Eastern Bloc will be a thing of the past very soon. The ban only lasts 12 months, but experts agree that it is extremely unlikely that it will be lifted.
