BIS: Senate Gun Caucus Howls at BIS Export "Pause"

46 Republicans Decry "hostility towards America's firearms industry."

Posted 11/24/23

All but three Republican Senators sent a letter to Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo raising questions over the decision  to pause for 90 days the issuance of export licenses for firearms, ammunition, and certain accessories to most overseas markets 

The letter notes the impact this pause could have on “U.S. commercial and economic interests” which according to the firearms and ammunition industry has an estimated “direct cost of at least $89 million associated with the 90 day pause and at least $238 million annually should the pause become permanent.”
