Due to outdated U.S. export regulations, the firearms and ammunition industry and many other U.S. industries that export products are at a severe disadvantage when competing with foreign companies.

Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In an effort to capitalize on the Trayvon Martin shooting, Reps. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., and Keith Ellison, D-Minn., co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, threatened to offer a so-called "Trayvon Amendment" that would cut funding to states with "stand your ground" laws.
