    I don't have an answer but i'm sure the US Government has some kind of Nefarious reason behind it...

    I no longer have ANY trust in the government at all. They are all Wolves...

    It sounds like the UN Small Arms trade ban is coming... What we're seeing with this action is a beginning of compliance with the UN Small Arms trade ban that John Bolton said a resounding "NO" to back in the Bush administration. The new administration officials are globalists and will therefore make every effort to comply with UN objectives. This is only a theory...

    Here's an interesting article that explains why the UN Small Arms Trade ban is a bad, bad thing.

    Here's a review of the Conference that was held in the US in 2006.
    http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id=2283

    Essentially, the program was to stop the trade of small arms between countries. The stated reason for the program was to prevent arms being sent to unintended groups, such as terrorists. The suspected reason was to prevent freedom fighters who fought back at their oppressive governments from obtaining weapons. The effort would have also severely hurt civilian availability of small arms and possibly placed UN regulations on ammunition and all light weapons. That's my understanding....

    Furthermore, the ban would have stopped the purchase of new small arms by a citizen of a country whose country didn't produce arms domestically. In other words, if you shut down your firearms manufacturers through frivolous lawsuits, and you can no longer import weapons then you've stopped the trade of all but used weapons within a country. That's my interpretation only...

    So more of the crap that the US is exporting guns to Mexico for the cartels to use against the military more or less.

    I suppose that same scenario could be applied to the cartel use but this UN effort has been going on for at least 8 years, as I understand...

    I am still able to purchase any European items,ie HK.CZ,Taurus etc,but I really wanted the Redhawk 44 also A S&W 29 44. 6".Seems Ive lost out on these.I have been able to purchase bits & pieces from the USA over the last few months,but not any complete guns for sometime now.European revolvers dont come up to the US standards I`m afraid.

    Maybe it's more of the spendulus job creation thing. I wonder if the Small Business Administration will loan start up cash for gun sm.uggling . It's a whole new business.

    A quick followup to previous post,Have included some copies of the emails sent to Germany,but have deleted the name of the supplier as I feel I do not have the right to show it without his permission.I would have been able to purchase US items upto a couple of months ago Ive been told.See attachment for emails.
