NRA: Gun blogs, videos, web forums threatened by new State Dept. regulation

12 posts in this topic

Commonly used and unregulated internet discussions and videos about guns and ammo could be closed down under rules proposed by the State Department, amounting to a "gag order on firearm-related speech," the National Rifle Association is warning.

In updating regulations governing international arms sales, State is demanding that anyone who puts technical details about arms and ammo on the web first get the OK from the federal government — or face a fine of up to $1 million and 20 years in jail.

According to the NRA, that would include blogs and web forums discussing technical details of common guns and ammunition, the type of info gun owners and ammo reloaders trade all the time.
 

"Gunsmiths, manufacturers, reloaders, and do-it-yourselfers could all find themselves muzzled under the rule and unable to distribute or obtain the information they rely on to conduct these activities," said the NRA in a blog posting.

"This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register, is as much an affront to the First Amendment as it is to the Second," warned the NRA's lobbying shop. "Your action is urgently needed to ensure that online blogs, videos, and web forums devoted to the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition do not become subject to prior review by State Department bureaucrats before they can be published," it added.

 

At issue is the internet. State is updating International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which implement the federal Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The rules govern everything from guns to strategic bombers.

The NRA said that the rules predate the internet, and now the federal government wants to regulate technical arms discussions on on the internationally available web.

I guess they'll rely on the snitch state to keep them informed of anyone who goes against this. Or else hire another bunch of people to scan the web constantly for infractions of their rules. If it goes through and it probably will. Exactly how do they plan to give permission and how long will that take? Months? Years?

There's nothing free about this country.

All tied to the U.N.

The Arms Trade Treaty - http://www.un.org/disarmament/ATT/

The landmark Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), regulating the international trade in conventional arms - from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships - entered into force on 24 December 2014.

First Conference of States Parties:                               24-27 August 2015    

From the NRA SITE - Public comment will be accepted on the proposed gag order until  August 3, 2015.

The Arms Trade - http://www.un.org/disarmament/convarms/ArmsTrade/

In all parts of the world, the ready availability of weapons and ammunition has led to human suffering, political repression, crime and terror among civilian populations. Irresponsible transfers of conventional weapons can destabilize security in a region, enable the violation of Security Council arms embargoes and contribute to human rights abuses. Importantly, investment is discouraged and development disrupted in countries experiencing conflict and high levels of violence, which also affect their ability to attain the Millennium Development Goals.

 

Anyway here is a video, I personally cut and uploaded to my Personal  YT account. - Kind of dark, but it's the truth.

20 years in jail and 1 million fine! That's unbelievable. Who in their right mind would support this?

My right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon.   :iqbsngdi:   I will not comply!
