Arms Trade Treaty Could Make Guns as Scarce as Ammo
#1
Quote:Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- Contrary to the American Bar Association’s (ABA) contention that the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) “is consistent with the Second Amendment” and “would not require new domestic regulations” to hamper the exercise of the rights therein, the reality is that if ratified, the ATT could make guns as scarce as ammo and the exercise of the Second Amendment difficult indeed.

And here’s how this would happen–the ATT contains ambiguities regarding the application of new firearm regulations and import restrictions. And this means the moment the ATT goes into effect –should it be ratified– the types of guns allowed to enter America would largely depend on each U.S. Presidential administration’s opinion of what is or isn’t appropriate.

One good thing I guess is that it should promote job growth in the gun manufacturing sector. Granted this wouldn't be immediate and there will be a shortage of arms for a long time. The demand will be there though. A demand for US made guns.

US made mosins and sks's anyone?

One really bad thing though, is that it would make guns unaffordable to the lower income demographic. Take 1911's for instance. I had my heart set on a Ruger SR1911, until the price went from $599 intro to over $800 now. After much reviewing and hand-wringing, I went with a Rock Island Armory. Have to say, other than not having a made in USA sticker on it, couldnt be happier.

Sure, there are some less expensive US manufacturers out there (HiPoint, Keltec), but their prices have risen too with the advent of scarcity. How much more should the market suddenly have a scarcity event other than panic buying?

As to an increase in jobs, how many jobs are we talking? Much of the work is automated.

A made in USA sticker don't mean what it did years ago. Take off all the foreign made parts on a Harley and see what's left
