The NRA released this statement:
"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."
I just spent the better part of an hour readin gthe Federal Register dated June 3, 2015 Vol. 80 No. 106 pages 31525 to 35538.
It redefines the term export to meant release of information on the internet to a non-US citezen. As in someone form Canada popping in to look at the postings in this forum.
It is a proposed rule change, so please contact your representative and senator to voice your opinion to this rule change.
