In case you were hoping the current ammo shortage was coming to an end, we got some bad news for you. The State Department has just started new sanctions against the Russian government and these sanctions are directly targeting guns and ammo.

These new sanctions are going into effect September 7th and exclusively target the importation of firearms and ammunition. Don’t believe it? Don’t want to believe it? here is the relevant text from the sanctions:

Restrictions on the permanent imports of certain Russian firearms. New and pending permit applications for the permanent importation of firearms and ammunition manufactured or located in Russia will be subject to a policy of denial.

Russian arms are extremely popular despite many having already been banned from importation, but Russian ammunition has been picked up by almost every firearm owner in the United States. Popular calibers like 7.62×39 are mostly made in Russia and American counterparts are extremely expensive in comparison. Enthusiasts of the AK platform and the SKS are going to be reeling from these sanctions. Ironically it was the shortage of 5.56 that pushed many to switch over to this caliber for the first time.

As you are reading this article the price of 7.62×39 is skyrocketing. Prior to the announcement the price of 7.62×39 was roughly 26 cents per round (cpr), now it’s hard to find anything under 40cpr.

This newly imposed shortage will not last forever, but for the next few months it will be extremely hard and expensive to buy 7.62×39.

The Biden Administration and Anti-American Democrats are using every excuse they can to attempt to illegally disarm American Citizens, may they rot in their own Communist Hell.

When I pray for this Administration, I use Psalm 55:15 as my base.

and words of THIS truth (Ps 55:15) have never been spoken by a demonRAT, and for that matter most of them Cannot recite even a single scripture, nor would they Obey if they knew of one, so “yea let them descend while alive into the depths of hell, to be tormented by its pains and Evils”

I have always used Psalm 109:13, “let his days be few, and let another take his office.”

He is not going to be re-instated, and I am afraid his mouth may have cost him any future job in Washington. If he would have just done the job he did, and kept his mouth and Jr High name calling absent…….

I would have hoped that the pragmatic firearms owner? Would have stocked up for emergencies WAY PRIOR to the covid-induced ammo blowout.
What’s happening now? Was clearly foreseeable. The 2A status of guns and ammo in this country have been on precarious footing for some time now…

Prez Joe already said our guns won’t protect us from the government. He said we would need some jet fighter planes. Can we still import Russian Fighter Planes? Public Sector, vs Private Sector, what is the problem here? Envision a country, where the EPA, researches best practices, and offers grants to implement them, instead of fines. Homeland security is done by locally constituted preparedness centers. Tax supported law enforcement tries to prove you are innocent, while investigating the crimes. In other words, all government is proactively supportive, and limits intervention to truly egregious situations. A government that TRUSTS us, and considers everyone innocent until PROVEN guilty. A government free of suspicion, because they are free of provocation, needless secrecy, and are impeccably forthright and honest.

Looks like we will have to start buying our munitions from the Takbab because the globalists running this country now don’t want us to have any guns ~~ Chipping away one brick at a time….
