Sorta true, Estaban, they cut off the supply from China, and when The Wall fell, demand had ammo pouring in from Europe, making the trip for the ammo a heck of a loyt long, and therefore, more expensive.
Same could happen to future importations, or here, via laws, regulations and liability to no longer be able to make ammo, here in the US...

Its "WHY" they do theses importation bans that bugs me, and it would be wonderful if Communist China went **** up and sold their surplus guns and ammo here in the US like the Communists in Europe did in the 90's....

Make it VERY expensive, the ammo, and few people will buy. When they do, they will buy fewer rounds.

Chinese citizens can’t store a weapon in their home; they must store firearms at a gun range or authorized location. There are even laws that prohibit selling guns in China that are meant for export. In other words, some weapons can be made in China but not actually used in China.

These Chinese government heavily regulates bringing guns into the country. So, it is virtually impossible for an American company to export firearms into China.


Since "All Political Power Flows from the Barrel of Gun." the Communist have complete gun control with only approved party members being able to exercise any sort of hunting or recreational gun use. Owning any sort of firearm is far out of reach for the average Chinese citizen.

That is the largest reason why we do not see "Cheap guns and ammo" coming from China and why the US Firearms Industry does not import anything to China. There simply is no legal market.

When the Soviet Union fell, the Socialist lost their control of both the people and their ability to be armed. Hence the flow of "cheap weapons and ammo" into the west as the people flexed their new found ability to engage in commerce. You can see that reflected in such quality firearms as CZ. For many years they produced high quality firearms that were greatly underpriced because of their lack of experience in a free market.

Saying you support the 2nd amendment and voting Democrat is a lot like being Jewish and voting for Hitler because you think he will get the German economy going again.

As a party Democrats started a civil war to defend slavery. In 1868 the Democrat party platform was, "This is white man's country, let white men rule." Jim Crow laws were created, written and forced on minorities by southern Democrats. Democrats who formed the Klu Klux Klan and were at the heart of 100 years of lynching's and terrorism in America. Joe Biden famously fought against segregation. Screaming loudly to anyone who would listen he "didn't want his kids raised in a racial jungle!" Honestly, if we are rewriting history and removing statues of George Washington and Abe Lincoln because they are now hated men in Democrats version of history................................how is a party this racist and violent still around under it's original name?

The Democrats have been pushing gun laws to forward their racist agenda for generations. Blacks and minorities have always been persecuted by them for daring to own firearms. Now they want everyone under their yoke. It is laughable when any screwball leftist says this is not going to happen. They will gladly ban every firearm and then every toy gun and then every sword or axe and then clubs and saws and then rocks and pocket knives..................just like England.

Never mind the promises to raise taxes, apparently Democrats have no idea where corporations get the money to pay taxes. From people who buy their products. A tax increase on evil "corporations" is the same as a tax increase on you. Destroying what is currently the largest oil and gas industry on earth in the vain hope that windmills will power cars, really? Where do you think all the plastic keys you are pecking away on come from anyway?

Free college for all? Apparently Democrats have absolutely no idea what "Free" means. Because teachers do not work for FREE, books are not printed for FREE and buildings do not heat or cool themselves for FREE. So the few remaining taxpayers will be funding this too.

Free medical for all, including 15,000,000 foreign criminals here illegally, really? Where are the FREE catscans coming from? FREE MRI machines? Maybe doctors and nurses working for FREE? Providing FREE cutting edge cancer treatments for millions of people for absolutely nothing?

And then we have guns. Joe Biden and his crack smoking kid in the White House deciding what to do about your firearms. There is a reason he does not want to address crime or reduce criminal behavior or drug trafficking.............................his kid needs crack and strippers to purchase with his millions in ill gotten gains from Chins and Ukraine. Instead of addressing the problem of a few million criminals he is going after the private property of 100 million law abiding citizens and destroying our Bill of Rights.

Do you honestly think crime will end if guns are banned? If so, explain why crime still happens in Great Britain?

Yeah, orange man bad...........................................................Pedophile Joe, WORSE.

I get a bad feeling our 2A rights are going to end next year.
In the 2016 election, there was almost unanimous support for Trump from gun owners--even though a lot didn't like him. To rely on Congress or the courts is foolish. I see a ban on a lot of firearm parts and activitues next year. Ammo shortages for 2 years. And, probably the end of online ammo purchases. Probably wont be able to sell your collections without some type of loopholes. We'll still have a 2A on paper, just will be heavily restricted. Even if it gets challenged in court, your stuff is still illegal until courts rule otherwise. And, the Supreme Court hasn't shown a willingness to take up 2a cases recently. So, I guess this is it.

Sadly - could very well occur.

I will vote "against" President Trump. Gun rights, part of huge number of wider issues. Factually, he's done almost nothing positive for gun rights. He has done irrepraable harm to our nation. His late, faltering, tepid Covis response highlighting. But far wider, he has highly jeprodised our international friendsips and alliances. He has removed our nation from first prominance in Western World leadership. He has weakened such as NATO and his strange waivering, controversial style of "leadership" has abandoned and shocked our allies historically most important to making/keeping our nation strong. He highlights the "cult of personality".
Far worse, he leads a Republican Party of too many "yes men", abandoning virtues and values, bowing, supporting such leadership.
Speaking here: NRA Life Member since 1958, currently Patron member. Now having no use for NRA leadership either.
Gun collecting fun and enjoyment has been central to my life. But I am my brother's keeper and though living well myself & family, my heart and thoughts with the many Americans without health insurance, without unemployment safety net, living here and fighting in uniform for our nation as now being deported aliens. I cannot abandon my own principles and belief in God, even at the cost of my guns.
I neither condemn those that disagree with me/my principles. Disagreement both healthy and the 'right' fundamental to our liberty. But as to "respect", I also can't with those who make gun rights 'the single most important element in their American lives.
I thank God so much for what I have, but also am with firm belief that I have a responsibity to the many less fortunate.

God Bless us all, good folks whatever belief. Please, if you condemn me, consider my opinions/beliefs in the name of a better life for all Americans... And my brothers across the World!
Best & Stay Safe!

From an American who has no insurance , my plan was $480 a month , Obama care plan offered was $740 with $10,000 deduct , Thank You for your vote that has resulted in me and others in the construction field paying for the less fortunate,s insurance by way of Obama Care fine,s , higher plan cost,s , and lesser or no coverage at all . From an American in the construction field who has had to compete with Illegal Immigrants for a job . I would like to think you for your vote that has lowered my wages , reduced or eliminated my benefits , cost fellow workers and friends their homes and some cases their families . We would like you to enjoy your cheap condo,s , houses , baby sitters and cheap buffet,s . If Biden is elected those who voted for him may well see that Karma is a Bitch .

Good chance there will be an anti-RKBA occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, I fear. And a worse one in the old Naval Observatory mansion. BUT with RBG watching the flowers grow from the root-side and Amy Barrett on the High Court, they (the Dims) may find getting their way a bit of a chore, one beyond their reach. Been listening to the conformation hearings and (despite sounding like a little girl when she talks), I believe Judge Barrett will make a good Justice Barrett if confirmed by the full Senate (which I believe will happen. I hope, I hope).

Why would you vote to remove civil rights?
It's like deciding to maim yourself, shouldn't self-preservation instinct lead you to choosing a non maiming option?

The problem is the court hasn't been reviewing 2a cases. And, we are relying on them doing so. Until the case is reviewed, we will be limited to: being felons (caught or not caught), destroying hundreds or thousands of dollars in property (millions if you are a business), and higher prices or restrictions. This probably will have an effect on firearm innovation as well--corporations may be reluctant to make new products that may become illegal. It's not a good thing. Also, we can't rely on Congress being divided. There is the possibility the Senate could flip. We don't have a sure bet. And, we have a few libs who ran as Republicans.

One would think so. I guess "Orange man bad" overrules self preservation.

Politics came up at our informal VFD meeting last night, and a heavy consensus amongst the fellows that rational thought has left politics and emotion has taken over.
I think I can see that now.
Anyways theres no way these guys, who are Inupiaq, could follow the emotional trail, its consittered very woman like, and in this Eskimo social society, Men and Women are knowingly and markedly different, wich is quite rational.....

But from the date when the case is filed in the trial court, how long does it take for a case to be decided by the SC?

And think of the harm/damage that will occur in the mean time to those & all others.

Be realistic.

Below is a photo captured by my phone of a piece of Joe's plans towards firearms. He has a laundry list of anti 2a items. So, if you are voting Democrat, then you are voting against your 2a rights. Mind blowing that gun owners are voting against themselves. The item involves the end of online sales. So, no more getting ammo shipped to your home. No more Gunbroker. No more store fronts for firearms. This is just one little piece. Go to his site to see for yourself. They WILL accomplish some of their goals if Biden is elected.

From what I found: Q: How long does it take the Court to act, once a petition has been filed? A: On the average, about six weeks. Once a petition has been filed, the other party has 30 days within which to file a response brief, or, in some cases waive his/ her right to respond.

The case has to go through the lower courts first. I think at least a year.
