Russian Sanctions Spark AK-47

Russian Sanctions Spark AK-47 

 

We thought to go ahead and report on this a bit late just to make certain it would actually hold as law, and also to allow myself to recover from incessant laughter. 

Really, this is all totally self explanatory so I won't belabor the issue, but just wanted to touch on a small caveat of this new sanction law that the admin continues to "speak" when speaking on this topic, but one most people I am sure are allowing to slip by their ears. I will highlight the area of interest:

"The Treasury department says people and businesses who own Kalashnikov guns can still sell them in the U.S. as long as the Kalashnikov company doesn’t benefit from the transaction."

"Guns manufactured by Kalashnikov and other Russian companies make up only a small part of the U.S. gun market: Only about 200,000 Russian guns were imported to the U.S. in 2012, according to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. That same year, the agency says, U.S. gun makers produced more than 8.5 million guns, not including guns produced for the military. They also imported around 4.8 million more from other countries."



"as long as the Kalashnikov company doesn't benefit from the transaction."

That is an interesting caveat. The question is then, can this caveat be used against every single dealer who previously had AK weapons in stock and then sold them during the buying spree?  Sure would be one hell of a way for the King and his merry grunts to all but wipe out the majority of gun wholesale and retailers in the US in one sweeping move. Just sayin! 

"The Treasury department says people and businesses who own Kalashnikov guns can still sell them in the U.S.

The Treasury dept. "SAYS"...... This is interesting legal language and double speak more than likely. They get you by words in legalese. What you believe a word means within any gov't document, is NOT what those words mean via their Blacks law dictionary.  So when the Treasury dept document "says" something, believe me when I tell you, it does NOT say what you believe its saying, and it is surely not written to your benefit. 

First off, not one of the US govt's agencies follow their own Federal laws, this has been proven time and again within U.S history, and even currently by their actions along side of the Mexican gov't against the State of Nevada; thus, this point of fact should not be contestable. So, what the Treasury dept. "says" means absolutely nothing intelligible to any of us, even if they wrote it in their version of this new sanction law. As well, this is war speak and war sanctions, all of which can be changed without notice, and since not one of the US wholesalers or retailers of these weapons and ammunition can possibly 'prove" that "their" sales of these weapons have not or will not in some way in the near future "aid the enemy" or "benefit" the Kalashnikov company, or one of the ammunition companies, then I would caution all of you to the possibility that you may have just been set up for some future culling.  Sorry to break this very real possibility to you if you are one of the re-sellers of these weapons or ammo, but they may have just used the American peoples greed and need to have what they are being told they can't have, against you.  Rule #1 - Don't be predictable! My advice, read the US Army Ranger manual a few times. 

Again, this is just my opinion based on long verifiable history and my knowledge of their law, it is however a distinct possibility to be aware of. Although for most then, the damage is now done.
